The world saw the tortuous, brutal, callous, murder of George Floyd in broad daylight, in front of cameras and witnesses. However, the DA in Minneapolis and the system in Minneapolis would like us to believe that our eyes have deceived us and what we saw was not a murder, but merely reckless conduct. The DA has attempted, through its flimsy charges to absolve these murderous, racist, cops for the torture of a black man that was begging for his life. His name is George Floyd.
Our so-called allies are trying to tell us how to process our anger. They still think that they can control how we deal with the brutality we have suffered for centuries. They are arguing that our rage is criminal, that we should peacefully continue to accept our murders. They want us to continue to make them feel comfortable while our comfort has never been important.
Do not cower. Do not live in fear. Do not be held hostage by a system that has forgotten us. Justice for George Floyd requires us all to be engaged. If you are our ally, now is the time to prove it. Demand and fight for radical change. Until then, you can no longer call yourself or ally.
We will not be forced to capitulate to a system that sees us as second class citizens. The riots are not going to stop until real justice is served!
