The killing of George Floyd sparked a movement in the United States that is still felt throughout the world. Americans are reacting in pain and frustration all over with protests. Big E spoke his mind about the situation on New Day Feel The Power, and he got very emotional.
While addressing George Floyd’s killing, Big E stated that Floyd didn’t deserve to be killed over a counterfeit $20. He shed tears as he begged for a stop to the needless killing.
“I just keep putting myself in George Floyd’s position like when I saw him be murdered like that and to have a man put his knee on his neck like that, man. I don’t know how you don’t have empathy for a man like what who was accused of passing a counterfeit $20 bill, man. He didn’t deserve to die like that.”
“We can not be okay with murdering us. You just can’t be okay with it because it’s not the first time. It’s not the second time and we’ve seen it and like I’ve said I’ve seen and heard these stories from my parents and their parents and their parents before them and I can not accept living in a coutnry where this is acceptable where it takes two days to get an arrest for this man.”
Four police officers have been charged in the killing of George Floyd. Now we must wait to see how the legal system handles that situation.
There are still plenty of open cases where people are crying out for justice while gathering in the streets across the nation. Big E agrees with many others that it is time for a change.
