The great American treasure, Maya Angelou, wrote: "Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible." The manifestations of extreme forms of prejudice being exposed on the national stage in the wake of the tragic and senseless murder of George Floyd, the latest victim in a long history of human rights violations, are reminders of its abhorrent nature.
