Brother Floyd Worried That Violence Would Overshadow the Message of Protest
George Floyd’s brother is concerned that the violence of the last days has eclipsed the message of the protests and the memory of his late brother.
That’s what Terrence Floyd says in an interview with ABC News.
“It’s good to be angry, but use that anger for positive things,” said Floyd. “Because we’ve gone this way before.
Destroying your own city in anger isn’t what my brother would like. It’s good to demand justice, but channel your anger differently.”
Terrence Floyd is visibly emotional during the interview when he talks about his brother.
“He was a gentle giant. He was known for his positivity and motivation. That is how he should be remembered.”
George Floyd died in hospital last Monday after a police officer was left with his knee on Floyd’s neck for several minutes during an arrest.
Floyd said several times that he was out of breath. “I can’t breathe” is now one of the most heard slogans during the protests.
