On May 25th, 2020, George Floyd, an unarmed man was killed at the hands of the police. George Floyd was allegedly arrested for trying to forge a check. Derek Chauvin is the police officer seen in the video with his knee on George Floyd’s neck. You can hear George Floyd begging for his life. Derek Chauvin used a technique that is not taught at any police academy in the US. Derek Chauvin received over 18 complaints and 12 being police brutality. What happened that day was a disgrace. The Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, calls for charges against the arresting police officers. As of today, no charges have been made. What we want is what everyone wants! We want Justice for George Floyd! We’ve found the best Tweets about this topic for you. #BlackLivesMater

You wanna talk fair?
Fair is when a black person can get pulled over and their stomach not turned. Fair is when a black person can walk in a store and not be followed. FAIR is when WE treat them as equals. FAIR is not being "lesser" due to skin pigment. #BlackLivesMater

“Thugs” is literally the “politically acceptable” way to say niggers. We heard the dog whistle loud and clear from Trump- be very clear. #BlackLivesMater

why does 2020 feel like 1950 all over again?
Women show incredible strength by speaking out on s*xual h*rassment yet people have the audacity to question their honesty.
And black people STILL have to fight for equal rights and justice.

The Minneapolis Police Officer who murdered George Floyd had EIGHTEEN prior complaints for excessive force…how many more scumbags are in the force and are just one arrest away from murdering someone? #PoliceReform #BlackLivesMater #PoliceBrutality

NEW: Protests for the lynching of George Floyd are happening in Union Square, NYC. Chants “No Justice No Peace.” Arrests are being made. Enough is enough.

George Floyd was murdered in plain sight, recorded on video, while he begged for his life and the murderers are known to everyone, yet no arrests.
