“I’m heartbroken over yet another innocent life taken for no reason. from what i’ve gathered this was a good man, a man of peace. i am not, however, shocked. which infuriates me. this is a shocking incident, and yet it’s happened so many times and still no change ?? how many more george floyds ? how many more trayvon martins? ” Paris begins.
She continues, “There were over 100 unarmed african americans shot and killed in 2015, and i’m sure that number has only risen since. this is not okay. what is also not okay, is people reposting the videos… spread the story, not the trauma porn. it shouldn’t take videos like this to make people do something about it. this has been happening for too long.”
As you know, Paris Jackson is the daughter of King of Pop Michael Jackson and after his death was raised by his family — including grandmother Katherine.
Paris Jackson asks that the public stop exploiting Floyd’s final moments, and not to just share the video and forget about it until something similar takes place.
“It’s disrespectful to exploit this good man’s last moments,” Paris said. Adding, “Especially because most people will repost the video and then forget about it until another similar crime takes place. enough. f—-ing do something about it.”
As we reported, George Floyd was killed by a Minnesota police officer, Derek Chauvin, and he pressed him to the pavement with his knee on Floyd’s neck. A cell phone video shows the officer, who is white, holding Floyd down for minutes as Floyd complains he can’t breathe. Floyd died a short time later at a local hospital.
Protests against the brutal and unjust killing of George Floyd has sparked protests nationwide against police brutality.
A group has even gathered outside the home of the officer involved in the death — In a video on the scene, shared on social media, a woman shouts, “look how many. Look how many people are defending this killer’s house. Look at how many are protecting this killer’s house.”
