George W Bush claiming that there is "systemic racism" among police

In talking about George Floyd's death, Bush said:
"This tragedy — in a long series of similar tragedies — raises a long overdue question: How do we end systemic racism in our society? The only way to see ourselves in a true light is to listen to the voices of so many who are hurting and grieving. Those who set out to silence those voices do not understand the meaning of America — or how it becomes a better place."
Obviously, while Floyd's deaths apparently shows extremely bad policing, I don't think that the evidence supports the claim of systemic racism by the police. Even in Floyd's case, t don't believe that there is yet evidence of racism on the part of the officer who apparently killed him, though I am interested in being corrected if I am wrong.

Some of the evidence on the hydroxychloroquine and the Coronavirus

Possibly people haven't heard about all the studies showing the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine is because Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube are actively taking down statements by doctors about its benefits. They are even censoring academic studies that show the benefits. You will need to use a search tool other than Google to get most studies on the benefits.

Other studies

It is amazing that Twitter, FB and other social media outlets have closed accounts if people link to statements by doctors about hydroxychloroquine

It is very hard to find studies that find benefits from hydroxychloroquine because Google censors those searches. Of course, you probably know that Google sensors conservatives generally.

The big Lancet study that everyone in the media was citing about the harm from hydroxychloroquine was obviously bad as anyone with a statistics background could tell because of a self-selection problem, but it was retracted because they had doctored data.

Former Congressman Michael Myers accused of ballot stuffing during the 2014, 2015 and 2016 primary elections

From Fox News:
Myers, 77, is accused of stuffing ballot boxes for candidates during the 2014, 2015 and 2016 primary elections, bribing Demuro, falsifying records, voting more that once in federal elections, and obstruction of justice. 
Myers allegedly bribed Demuro to illegally add votes for certain candidates of their mutual party in primary elections. Some of the candidates, according to the Justice Department, were individuals running for judicial office whose campaigns hired Myers, and others were candidates for various federal, state and local elective offices whom Myers favored. 
According to the indictment, Myers would solicit payments from his clients in the form of cash or checks as “consulting fees,” and then use portions of those funds to pay Demuro and others in return for tampering with election results. 
The payments, according to the Justice Department, ranged between $300 and $5,000 per election. . . .
