The left has never been a group to let a tragedy go to waste; although this has been proven time and time again, Democrats’ response to the death of George Floyd is a shining example.
On Memorial Day, Floyd was murdered when a now-former Minneapolis police officer knelt on Floyd’s neck for roughly nine minutes. During this time. Floyd pleaded for his life and told the officer he couldn’t breathe. In spite of this, however, the officer kept his knee on Floyd’s neck, prompting the death of the latter.
In the wake of this event, the left is now pushing the false narrative of “systemic racism” in America. Corporations also appear more than willing to feed into this as so many folks attempt to be “woke.”
Developments from Breitbart News document Walmart’s pledge to donate $100 million dollars to fighting so-called “systemic racism.”

Walmart joins a series of other businesses and individuals attempting to be “woke.” Part of this “wokeness” involves asserting that America is inherently racist and unfriendly to non-white individuals.
This victimhood narrative from the left is nothing new; however, a fair amount of time will have to pass before the outright virtue-signaling and pandering dies down.
