Lewis Hamilton, the only black driver in F1, spoke out about the trial of Derek Chauvin, who was found guilty of three counts. Recall, Derek Chauvin is the cop who killed George Floyd by having his knee lay on Floyd’s neck for 10 minutes, which ultimately resulted in Floyd’s death.
Hamilton thinks this is a big deal and that now most can celebrate this outcome, given that justice has finally won “JUSTICE for George! The emotions I feel right now are hard to describe. Derek Chauvin has been found guilty.
This is the first time that a white officer has been convicted for killing a black man in Minnesota. This is monumental, George’s death is not in vain. “The result of the Derek Chauvin trial today is the right one.
Convicting him of all three charges marks a new dawn in the fight for racial justice.
Hamilton believes that only togetherness can prevent such things from happening again, and he hopes that such things will not happen again.
This seems to be a great day for all people in the world, not just the black race, and it is commendable that the judges did their job honestly and honorably “This trial was an opportunity for the justice system to hold Derek Chauvin accountable for his actions when he took the life of George Floyd.
" "We can now breathe a collective sigh of relief that the right decision has been met, and that justice has been served. “Today’s outcome is a sombre victory for George and his family, but it shows that our efforts to promote justice are not in vain.
Black voices have been heard and action is happening. When we stand together, we can make a difference. “But this is just one step on the path towards a more equal society. Since George’s death, so many other Black people have died at the hands of the police and we must ensure the momentum of today continues."
"The fight isn’t over, and there is more to be done, but we can consider today a glimmer of hope. “My thoughts and prayers are with George’s family. I hope they will feel a sense of peace from this result.
#BlackLivesMatter” “Justice served on all counts. Good. Still a ton of work to do. Continue to rest peacefully #GeorgeFloyd” We sincerely hope that such things will not happen in the future and that people will finally understand that differences are what should unite us, and it is athletes like Hamilton who should be supportive of such cases because they are a role model for many in the world.
