In Minneapolis, a black man named George Floyd has died after a white police officer knelt on Floyd’s neck, choking him to death. Videos have spread on social media showing Floyd repeatedly saying he couldn’t breathe while the officer was doing it. Four officers involved in the incident have been fired. Protestors have been chanting “I can’t breathe” near the intersection where the incident happened. More details about the incident can be read at USA Today

It’s been 7 years since the #BlackLivesMatter movement started. Why is this still happening? What needs to be done?

I'm glad this is being discussed here in Exhale. I am honestly really disturbed by this. I was just putting together a list of what musicians are saying about this. I'll post them here.

The video is the saddest thing ever. 
 

he literally has his knee on his neck. He is begging handcuffed with his face smashed on the cement road, “please i cant breathe.”

the officer makes fun of him and says “kids this is why you dont do drugs”

and the people are recording him are saying, “get off him he cant breathe. Its not about drugs. This is a human.”

so sickening to watch. Imagine being there in person.

I saw the video too and it really disturbed me. I know the officer was fired, but this is straight up murder.

I honestly don't even want to watch the video.  Not because I don't care, but because I'm sure it'll make me sick after seeing and reading the responses.  Seeing things like this make me sad to live in the world we live in today.  I know that there have always been and, unfortunately, will probably always be issues like this.  However, that obviously doesn't make it right.  I also hate the image this gives to police officers.  Everyone can have their opinion on them, because we have all had different experiences with them.  I have someone very close to me who is an outstanding officer.  They are very much by the books, but also have a heart.  They are stern when they need to be, yet compassionate too.  It's very unfortunate that officers like that are overshadowed by officers like the ones in this story.  I feel for George Floyd's family at this time.  May he rest in peace.  "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Martin Luther King Jr.

I'm literally in tears. This was so so disturbing and heartbreaking. May his soul rest in peace. No human ever deserves to be treated this way. That was some next level racism. I hope justice is served, getting fired means nothing, what they did was pure murder.

the fact that this **** keeps happening :ohwut: I'm glad those pigs got fired because more often than not these murderers get to keep their jobs, but they should 100% get prosecuted :hillary:

This was extremely depressing to watch, clearly the guy is already apprehended, why continue to pin him down on his neck? He's already in handcuffs! What was the point of the torture?!? :xcuseme:

It’s because this is a modern day lynching 

cops used to torture black people 100 years ago and continue to do so today

that's what it is sadly

Sometimes we think we are advancing as a society, that all this tecnology and media promotion of civil rights are really making deep change. And then you get to see videos like this in where indifference, hate and violance are shown without reserve... seems like WE STILL HAVE TOOO MUCH WORK TO DO GUYS for every minority to be safe in this world... RIP :( .
