Its taking a stand against the fact that black people in America and around the world are still treated as second class citizens by some people in the 21st centuryTake a stand against what exactly?
Floyd was not arrested because he was black, he was arrested for passing counterfeit money. He was not pinned to the ground because he was black, he was pinned to the ground because he refused to get into the cop car after several attempts. He did not die from the hold the cop had him in, he died from heart failure due to a pre-existing condition and having intoxicants in his system.
Did the cop use a hold om him that he shouldn't have? Yep. Did the hold combine with Floyd's pre-existing condition and lead to his death? Yep. Should he be held accountable for his actions? Yep, and he is. Nothing shows this was racially motivated. The "racist system" has charged the cop with 3rd degree murder and fired all involved. What are you taking a stand against? The system punishing the cop for a lethal lapse in judgment?
Someone explain the logic in having riots in response to this situation.
A white male such as myself would not have been murdered by those police officers if we were caught in a situation like George Floyd. George Floyd tells the police officer that he could not breathe, the police officer continued to press down hard against his neck which killed him. It was intentional and the fact he was only given a charge of third degree murder is criminal
this isn’t fair.And surely in a civil rights situation, there is no argument or debate. Everyone should have the same treatment. And black folk should not have to fear walking down the street, driving their car and other normal day to day things
And I seriously cannot believe you’ve gone to disagree with this and question wanting a better and fair world for everyone. That’s why people want to take a stand
people will take the **** with rioting and protesting and I absolutely do not condone that type of behaviour
however something has to be done because it’s not fair anymore
