Minneapolis Mayor Kneels At George Floyd’s Casket And Sobs

We are all well aware of the tragic death of George Floyd that led the world filled with rage. Seeking justice for George Floyd became the common goal for almost everyone around the world. You can see the souls burning with anger for the injustice that happened to George Floyd and it’s only because of the color of his skin. This would not be the case if it was of a privileged man. Racism hasn’t ended, it has only been in hiding. The racists have made black people voiceless from injustice but as George Floyd’s daughter said, “Daddy Changed The World”.


Due to this heartbreaking tragedy of George Floyd, thousands and thousands of people regardless of skin color protested against the racist police! You can literally scroll down Twitter and see how the police officers attack peaceful protestors including elderly people.
In my opinion, this is going to be a new ERA, Where there will be an END for racism once and for all.
