“Like many of you, I am suffering from these tragedies in recent years. And I’m already exhausted by a grief that never seems to stop. At the time, st. George’s, Breonna, and Ahmaud. Before that, it was Eric, Sandra, and Michael. It goes on and on, it continues,” he wrote to his wife from the president Barack Obama at the beginning of your message.
She went on: “Race and racism are a reality that many of us grew up learning how to deal with. But if you ever expect to get over it, it can’t be the only a person of color, to deal with this,” he pointed out.

“It’s good enough. What will you need? In the civil war? With a new president? Violent protests? And I’m tired! The country is sick and tired. America is not the land of the free”,
“I’m tired of typing, “rest in peace”. I want black males to live in peace.”
“My heart is broken, he would begin touring again. A murder is a murder. Police officers are also citizens and, the laws must apply to them as well.”
My heart breaks for George’s Career, his family, and for the people in the golden state. Murder is murder. The Cops are also citizens, and the same rules should apply to them. This is absolutely horrific, and if the mayor and THE do not step up, it sets a poor example for this entire country. pic.twitter.com/WA5VJGGhE2

“THIS HAS GOT TO STOP. It makes me absolutely sick. Makes Me angry that this man had DIED. Racism is bad and we need to use our voices. I’m sorry, George “Floyd”.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
“Racism is a disease that is recurrent in nature. (…) George “Floyd said,” I can’t breathe’. He said it about 15 times. Not at a time. Or both of them. Up to 15 times. These police officers are going to be handled. They’re going to pay. But the package, you need to fight for gender equality. We’re going to win when you normalizarmos to justice”.

After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism in your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? ‘When the looting starts, the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump

“For the past few days, and the sheer magnitude of the devastation, the anger, and the sadness I felt was overwhelming. You see people dying and being linchada day-after-day has led me to a tough place in my heart. The point is to get away from the networks, in order to avoid the agony in the voice of George London again, begging for his life time and time again. (…) If the killing is the result of the drug, or to resist an arrest, and what the consequences should be for the murder?”.
“We need to get justice for George’s Career. They all witnessed his death in the light of the day. We are broken and damaged. We can’t normalize, the pain. I am not speaking just for black people. Enough of the killings unaware of the human beings. Enough to say that black people don’t matter as much as the others.”
