What are you doing to act in George Floyd’s memory?

From our President:

George Floyd changed the world and we should “act in his memory”.

Readers: what have you done today (or recently) to act in George Floyd’s memory? What did this American hero do that we should also do so that our children can see an ideal way for an adult to act?

  1. I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the many great contributions of the black community and their culture to our society.
    Their peaceful and generous nature makes them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture.
    Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people.
    Real estate values are fueled by the influx of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nurturing of these communities, as an example of all they have achieved by their enthusiasm for self-improvement through hard work and a self-reliant can-do nature.
    African American international reputation for self restraint, boundless patience and superior non-violent conflict resolution skills is legendary across the globe.
    Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.

  2. Nobody loved him. We was a thug and a criminal who was going to come to a bad end one way or another.

  3. [1241 1st attack on Jewish community of Frankfurt am Main, Germany

    Nothing bad happened to the Jews for 500+ years?

  4. Biden is rightfully trying to win black voters. This is why he was at Morehouse and is now reminding us of Floyd.

    In few weeks, Biden will tell us the story when he wanted to marry a black woman but his racist parents wouldn’t allow it and thus ended up with “Dr.” Jill. And soon after that, he will tell us that his ancestor were black!

  5. I am thanking finest(best of the best) police officer and protector of people and justice Derek Michael Chauvin
