On 25 May 2021, the first death anniversary of the murder of African American George Floyd, Americans gathered at the spot in the Minnesota city where Derek Chauvin, a White officer of the Minneapolis police, knelt on Floyd’s neck with his knees for nine minutes, killing Floyd. White and Black Americans knelt in silence for nine minutes. Floyd’s family members were also present. The event was a manifestation of the character of American society, which teaches them to apologize for their mistakes. Similarly, after a row erupted over French President Emmanuel Macron offering flowers on the grave of Napoleon, he apologized for the role of France in the genocide in Rwanda in 1994 that took 900,000 lives.
