Indian American Physicians Kneel to Support Black Lives Matter

Several Indian American doctors and medical personnel in different parts of the country kneeled for 8.46 minutes, the time Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee against George Floyd and killed him, as an expression of solidarity with the protests by Black Lives Matter. Organized by an informal group of doctors and Karnataka Physicians in U.S., the doctors kneeled at 1 pm Eastern on June 5. All of them are a part of the nation wide movement under the banner #White Coats for Black Lives.
