The week George died, hearts broke around the world.
This was the one-too-many moment.
How can you not be angry after noting that a hundred thousand Americans, mostly blacks, died needlessly from COVID-19. Then came the one-too-many murdered black man who was beautiful beyond words. His mamma’s little boy knew he was dying and reached out to his mommy. “OMG,” the world cries.
“In the videos a Donald Trump type of man told George to die calmly as George begged to say goodbye to his mom,” said one crying protestor.
One more preventable American death was wilful murder according to the American black community which has seen with the rest of the world numerous videos of the event that took this man’s life.
George Floyd (46) was a football and basketball superstar. He was a beautiful man, say friends and family.
This was the one-too-many moment when white America killed George. Really? Yes. That is exactly what has happened. One more preventable American Death appears to the black community watching the video of his killing to be wilful murder. According to numerous videos of the event that took this man’s life his last wish was to say goodbye to his mother. He knew he was being killed. He said he was being killed.

Racist murder has become a genetic marker of white America. America murdered almost a million Iraqis since 2003; mass-murdered Iraqi and Iranian officials on 3 January 2020 in Baghdad; bombed a school bus full of Yemeni kids on 9 August 2018; starved millions of North Koreans, Venezuelans and Iranians over the recent past years; this is the Donald Trump legacy, racism and murder.
“We have seen ISIS kill people like this [referring to video]. It’s a Daesh tactic,” says Katie Alsop of the RINJ Foundation, a women’s civil society human rights group.
“Not protestors, they are victims.”
As black America’s rage spreads, buildings are burning. Stores are being looted and hungry Americans take their share of food.
“If you look at the [riot] videos, black Americans are stealing milk and food,” notes one news reporter talking to CNN’s Don Lemon on Thursday night.
Hearts are breaking around the world.
George was a nice little boy his mother loved dearly. He grew up to be the same nice, peaceful man as he was a nice little boy. As he was dying he said he was dying and wanted to speak to his mom. His siblings suffer unmanageable heartbreak. The world feels their pain.
Police and government officials have been condemning the behaviour of the angry black community which every week must tolerate its community members being killed and again took to the streets coming out of weeks of a pandemic lockdown.
Again, another black man has been killed for no good purpose by the US government’s law enforcement. There’s no point in listing the names any longer. The story is that murder of black men is commonplace in America. Murder of non white-anglos is America’s moniker.
How can this be?
