On Friday Derek Chauvin, the police officer who killed George Floyd was sentenced to 22.5 years in prison. Following the sentencing, Floyd’s brother spoke with one uniting message: “All lives matter.” George’s brother, Philonise Floyd, stated “not just Black lives matter, but all lives matter.”
“We need to stand up and fight. We can’t get comfortable, because when you get comfortable, people forget about you” Floyd added. He also insisted the color of one’s skin should not matter and that everyone wants to live and work together.
As for law enforcement, while liberal lawmakers are looking to defund the police, even though there are horrendous crime spikes, Floyd said, “you have good police officers, and you have bad ones. You shouldn’t have to sort them out.”
Floyd’s murder was caught on video by onlookers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and shook the world as the man struggled for his last breath while Officer Chauvin kneeled on his neck for over nine minutes.
Philonise said of his state, “everyone should want to make a difference and when they come to Minnesota, they shouldn’t have to think about (what happened to) George Floyd. They should be thinking about how great Minnesota is.”
Despite his brother’s murder resulting in utter divisiveness around the globe, during which many rioters and leaders said the slogan “all lives matter” minimized the deaths of Floyd and other Black victims, Philonise has not shied away from the phrase. In front of Congress last year in June, Floyd also stated “all lives matter, Black lives matter.”
“Anyone with a heart, they know that that is wrong. You do not do that to a human being. You don’t do that to an animal” Floyd said in his testimony. “All lives matter, Black lives matter,” he said.
