12:31 pm
faceless person who was told they lives, did not matter. ah gabriel endif, george floyd gives his name to those nameless in his cries, we hear the cries of hundreds of years and the unknown dead. and a world way. i hear those cries too, and i sound so from the day. this is what history sounds like to us. a lie charge breeze. oh, easy, really right now. thank you. ha ha, ha ha i. * want you to watch, you watch that video and i dare you not to be angry with you, watch that video of
12:32 pm
a police officer stomping the life out of the man with his knee on his neck, fox, 8 minutes and 46 seconds. and excruciating. and when people see that video, they don't to see george floyd's light being snuffed out. you know, they see actually the centuries of brutality and racism in this country. america has been here before the rice riots of the 19th sixty's on the streets of los angeles. in the 1990. 0, in ferguson, missouri. mm. at in minneapolis to die. oh. and the message is to sign up for black america. the land of the free as never felt truly for it. ah.
