    Everyone is feeling the frustration and exhaustion of a judicial system in a country that is not holding true to its name, United States. Are we really that United? We are witnessing with the recent violent and deathly case of George Floyd among many other black lives that racism is still a chocking weed that must be uprooted in order for the nation to move forward as "united".
