Transcript for George Floyd’s loved ones treasure his memory: Part 11
Subway. Eat Fresh. Georgie was O of the most incredible people to walk this Earth. His spirit, his faith, his love, his protection, his strength, his endurance, his ideology, how much he loved his family, how much he loves his kids. I wish they would know the Georgie that I knew. The videos, the road trips. The laughing and playing. The dreams and goals and ambitions he had. He just wanted to be a good dad. When you said, daddy changed the world. Mm-hmm. For all the black daddies in the world. One day it's going to be and god. You're going up or you're going down. That's going to be it. I think the George Floyd case, the Derek chauvin case has been a wake-up call for America. Maybe the next time when the Derek chauvin of the worlds meet the George floyds of the world, both men will get to go home to their families alive. This is the most significant trial on race relations in this country in the last half century. That's how important this case is. But does this mean we're going to keep talking about race and justice and policing in terms of what happened before George Floyd's death and what happened after George Floyd's death? In my opinion, no. Not until there's a real push to change the laws. Starting a war screaming peace at the same time all the corruption, injustice the same crimes always a problem if we do or don't fight and we die, we don't have the same right Let's get the ball rolling. We've made step one. Let's take a few more. Enough is enough! This is our country's racial reckoning. The change that happened was saying, no more, we're done. I can't breathe you're taking your life from me I can't breathe will anyone fight for me? This verdict is a form of accountability, the same accountability that we received here can be received for all these cases. But you certainly can't exhale. This is our time we have to put our foot on the gas and push forward. Say his name! George Floyd! These were family members, loved ones. It is George Floyd, but it is Eric Garner, breonna Taylor. Daunte Wright. We still say Emmett till. We still say trayvon martin. I think we'll say George Floyd, and it will have a meaning as a civil rights moment. And it's tragic, isn't it? Because Emmett till should have had a full life. But in death, that was a launch of a movement. And so, too, with George Floyd. And I want his heart to be filled up with joy in this. MM. And I'm going fill his whole name up in the world.
