This is George Floyd:
Everyone knows by now that he died while in police custody, it was said to be at the hands of a cop who was kneeling on him to keep him down but the autopsy has since been released and it seems to show that while that did contribute to the death, it was not the actual cause. At the end of the day, it was just an unfortunate accident.
Because of what happened to him people have since been protesting, rioting, celebrities are getting involved, tv and radio even plan to go silent today to honor this mans life. His black life matters to people, his life is precious to people. So much so, people are willing to create chaos and upheaval in an already chaotic time.
This is Ahmaud Arbery:
He also died but unlike the guy above, there is video evidence to prove he was hunted and killed like an animal. This kid was just jogging on a nice sunny day in the state of Georgia, something he always did. Except on this jog he was followed then blocked in by two trucks, one truck held the father and son that killed him and the other held the guy who video taped it all. They said they thought he was a burglar and they were trying to stop him, that's no evidence to show that. They ultimately killed him with a shot gun and this poor kid died for nothing. His only crime was jogging in an all white neighbor in the state of Georgia while being black.
As you can see, he is also black but the interesting thing is his black life doesn't seem to be as important as the guy above because no one has rioted or protested for justice to be sought for him. No celebrity has gotten involved (other then dr.phil), to say how horrible this is and this violence towards blacks has to stop. The only people that seem to care about this young man's life, is his family.
So, riddle me this boys and girls if all black lives quote "matter", then why does it seem people only cherry pick the ones they think matters? If all black lives mattered, then every act done against a black person would garner the same reaction but it doesn't.
Please tell me why George's life is more important and his death more significant then Ahmaud's? Why don't both their lives seem to matter? I'd really love to know.
