Do these articles mean anything anymore? I’ve seen the media hype up Trump legal issues for the last 6 years saying, “Trump is in big trouble this time”. Each case it feels like nothing happens.

Because each case hadn't been tried then, the wheels turn slowly even for normal people.

Unless you're a black male. But then the "wheels" are police bullets.

This is true. He might never see justice, but this trial is as far as it ever got. 6 years ago we had Mueller investigation, where he refused to inspect him. Now he got 2 impeachments (sadly without removal), 4 indictments 2 federal, 2 state charges, 91 felonies and the first criminal trial that is happening right now.

Though keep in mind that if he is found innocent then this is it for that indictments. If he is found guilty, you can bet your ass he will appeal and this won't be over.
