Hamilton ‘relieved’ after George Floyd conviction

Lewis hamilton has joined millions of supporters of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, driven by the murder of the African-American citizen George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands of the police officer Derek Chauvin, in the feeling of “relief” by the conviction that was known this Tuesday against the former police officer for unintentional murder in the second degree, murder in the third degree and murder in the second degree, with penalties that would reach up to 75 years in prison.

Hamilton, the mestizo son of a father originally from the Caribbean island of Grenade and an English mother, grew up suffering abuse due to the color of his skin and in his adulthood and with the media speaker for his condition as multiple F1 champion, has not stopped to vindicate racial equality. In the wake of Floyd’s murder, he moved the Black Lives Matter movement to the ‘Circus’, where he got all his teammates to kneel with him before the protocols prior to each race.


“JUSTICE for George! The emotions I feel right now are difficult to describe. Derek Chauvin has been found guilty. It is the first time a police officer has been convicted of murdering a black man in Minnesota. This is monumental, and George’s death has not been in vain. “

“The outcome of Derek Chauvin’s trial is correct. Convicting him on all charges is a new stage in the fight for racial justice ”.

“This trial was an opportunity for the system to hold Derek Chauvin accountable for his acts that took George Floyd’s life. Now we can breathe a sigh of relief because the right decision has been made, and justice has been served ”.

“Today’s resolution is a small victory for George and his family, and shows that our efforts to keep up the fight have not been in vain. The black voices have been heard and now actions have taken place. When we are together, we can make a difference ”.

“This is just one step towards equality in society. Since George’s death, other black people have been killed by the police, so we must continue our protests. The struggle is not over, and there is much to be done, but this resolution gives us a halo of hope ”.

“My thoughts and prayers are with George’s family. I hope you can find some peace in this resolution. #BlackLivesMatter “
