    First off this beautiful! Rest In Peace George!
    Just some honest questions:
    I thought church wasn’t essential! Why can’t everybody go to church? I had a uncle recently pass away and we couldn’t even have a funeral (because of lockdown). What is going on in this world?

  9. Rev. Sharpton has given extended life to our movement: Take your knee off our necks! We must demand total change in police culture and organization.
    Why body cameras and other measures won’t make any difference: two words, “qualified immunity,” the 1967 legal concept that allowed Chauvin to casually murder a citizen with a quiet glee, hand in pocket, aware of all the cameras filming him from many angles. In practice in allows police complete impunity.
    Police unions won’t give it up unless city officials force them to do so.

      He’s been great, I am so glad he’s given a national platform so he could continue to heal the world in the spirit of those before, in front of a national audience.

  10. Fact, G. Floyd should not have been killed by Police.
    Fact, during a home invasion, G. Floyd pointed a handgun to an African American Woman’s pregnant stomach while the other thugs ransacked her home for $ and drugs.
