This poster we are featuring here, Politics-of-Racism, in recent weeks, the world’s attention has focused on the events in Minneapolis, USA. Black George Floyd was forcibly killed by Minneapolis police officer. This incident has caused a sense of regret and concern around the world. This is not the first time in the United States that local police have used excessive force and violence against the black people. “Like many people, I could not remain indifferent to the incident. Therefore, the main idea of the designed poster is to condemn the policy pursued by US President Donald Trump and draw attention to racism, showing that it is a disgusting and unpopular position” says Khudayar.
