Re: George Floyd

Yes there is. Protestors would be declared 'racist' in the usual 'shut them up and put a halt to any honest debate' tactic, and ANTIFA would start smashing things (and people) up. Protestors (and black journalists covering the protests) in the US are being arrested, shot with rubber bullets, pepper...
