Freedom to Speak: In view of the world’s response to George Perry Floyd murder, give one solution required to make progress

Veronica DeBoest

Thanks to George Perry Floyd!

The change is here! I feel cases should be reviewed. I remember when so many of our kids where going to jail very fast. I found out that a white officer was planting drugs on them.

A brother Lieutenant listened to me. The officer was removed from here! I hope things change about leaving our brothers and sisters in jail for years waiting for a charge to be put on them.

They could be working to take care of their kids. The So-Called lawyers, even the brothers, should try to make the brother take a 10 year probation, just so he can drive a jag. You see he was cleared and have a Twixt card. Oh no, you got a car note. Sooo hurt his children. You are a "punk" in a suit!

Discrimination needs to stop! IA brother got out of jail 25 years ago, you still won't sell him a house because of his skin color. Housing Authority needs to change too.

People come out of jail, get training, working, but they have to wait 5 years for a place to live.

From slavery, Jim Crow era, to 2020, how many more racially motivated taking of children, beatings, and deaths have to occur in order for the US to become a more Civil Society? If the US is to become more just and humane, all Law Enforcement Agencies must have expanded oversight.

Changes must be made to the corporate law enforcement culture to stop racial profiling, home invasions practices, and other harmful community policing methods. Changes need to be made to Qualified Immunity; a judicially created doctrine that shields government officials from being held personally liable for constitutional violations—like the right to be free from excessive police force— U.S.C. § 1983.

Since 1990’s, while working to preserve the museum houses within Freedmen’s Town National Register Historic District, I have witnessed many horrific incidences of emotional and physical hardships and/or death, of elderly, children, and the handicapped, that were initiated by racist complaints from developers and new white residents, and then implemented by marginalizing law enforcement policies and police methods.

“We Are Called” by God to act for justice, urgently and peacefully.

One solution required for progress since the murder of George Floyd.

The value of money in the world lends itself to an uneven playing field as it relates to race and class, ultimately separating the value of one human life from another based on economic conditions. Hierarchy is determined by a person’s cash value which in turn causes certain individuals to be valued over others.

In reference to racism associated with George Floyd’s case, the initial call to the police was over allegations of counterfeit money which automatically made George Floyd’s life less valuable than the currency he allegedly used to pay the clerk at the corner store. When money drives the society and officers are paid to oppress those of less value by money or class, the system will continue to destroy people who are perceived of lesser value.

For example, the construction worker who laid the roads and built hospitals are of as much value as the doctors who save lives in the buildings that the construction workers built. The doctor is perceived of more value than the construction worker in the current system.

From the beginning of time when slaves had no money and worked for free, it immediately devalued the life of a black/brown person and set the entire race back 400 years, while “wealth” having no value circulated amongst one group of people, the whites. The required payment for natural resources like water, electricity, natural foods grown from the earth is a method to control and separate those who can afford those things from those who cannot. In the current system of dominance, everyone owes someone which is the ultimate control on a person’s life and well-being.

The only way to truly set us all free of bondage mentally and eliminate dissention amongst race is to implement a free society. A society free of dominance by currency puts all lives at equal value. In a free society, wealth simply does not exist and there is no value by a piece of paper separating one person from another regardless of race.

Money has now controlled the healthcare system, the education system, the political system… every system we need to survive as a human race is infected and controlled by money and because the black population is considered the poorest (based on the concept of money) we are the most effected. As long as the system is controlled by money it will destruct from the inside out, which is what we see happening today. M

Melva Davis

My opinion is just that. An opinion. I think that to start at the top of where the power of racism came to life and wasn't hailed responsible for the crime. Who created the laws that gave the cops the power to kill blacks by all means necessary.

Our laws are old laws and people need to be responsible for their ill actions by all means necessary including the looters and rallying and those whose take the laws into their own hands. As blacks, it seems like we've come a long ways, but we must never get comfortable with our enemies always lurking at our back doors. How can we as a black race keep our doors locked when we don't even own the right?

We have more of a stand now with bowled up hands than we did with our hands bowled and chained. George Floyd should be alive today. But someone gave corrupt men permission to kill at will. It didn’t start when Mr. Floyd got murdered. It started when our votes meant nothing or the lack of our votes. People today are out in droves all around the world. Let us come out to our voting polls the same.

This must not go on. One race die out then which one will be next? It will never end.

Andy Jones

What I think about George Perry Floyd’s death, what I think about his death is, it was not appropriate for those officers who were standing around as if nothing was going on and it surely isn’t right for the officer who was kneeling on his neck to think that he was just going to get investigated by Department of Homeland security, Internal Affairs and Federal Agents get off the hook.

What is my why you ask, why did you harm an innocent black man who may have used counterfeit money? I still ask what gives those officers the right to kneel on his neck while he is saying 'I CANT BREATHE’, I honestly think of this situation as if your white son or daughter was getting kneeled on and couldn’t breathe you would order the court, and U.S Government to give that black man and officers to get the death penalty. Now most you white people think of this as an mistake, but really how could you make a mistake by kneeling on someone’s neck and pretending you can’t see or hear them, and for [President] Donald Trump, to be my president he mocked an innocent black man and, “yes” we know all lives matter, but at the moment and time in history Black Lives Matter.

David Butler, former president Cuney Homes

Change got to come now! I like to see Housing Authority. opened apartments for those that come out of prison, for the brothers and sisters to attend school and classes for Jobs. Be ready to work for work!

Addison DeBoest, Little Ms. Juneteenth 2017

I was always told police was our friend! I know they’re my granny's friend! Like she always say, 'we are all God's children. I hear all the times about every one has rules. So how that happen? I know God is very hurt by this! I know Mr. Floyd is in Heaven with his mom now! Looking at us with a smile now!

Sara Sifa, Junior Miss. Juneteenth 2017

People should never be afraid of police. I know there are nice ones. I have met some, and I felt very happy! I pray, “Please no more hurting people.” We all need to pray.

Claudine Karutiman, Miss Juneteenth 2018

I think that they should not kill people because of skin color.

Police need to help instead of hurting people. Black People matter too. They need to change now

Tiffany Bryant

I was asked to give one solution for progress in the aftermath of Floyd George s death. The solution that I’m giving is training. I feel that the police department should form a new model of safety and reform change. In other countries the police department have years of training compared to the United States.

I also feel that they should be defunded and the defunded funds should be given to low income neighborhoods by providing neighborhoods community centers in each neighborhood. These community centers will provide the elderly with a safe place to communicate and socialize with other peers.

The community center can also provide children with hot meals for the summer and after school. This cruelty has been taking place for too many years. It’s time to make a change and if we stand together nothing can break us apart.
