Nationwide Protests Following Death of Black Man at Hands of Minneapolis Police

George Floyd died after saying “I can’t breathe” even calling out for his mother while a Minneapolis police officer held his knee on Floyd’s neck.

The NAACP has called the incident a hate crime, Rev. Al Sharpton and Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner, have reached out to Floyd’s mother. The Congressional Black Caucus is taking up the issue and House Speaker Nancy is calling for an investigation.
