We will not let you use George as a prop': Rev. Al Sharpton lays into Trump's bible photo-op 'agenda' at memorial for George Floyd.


'I've never seen anyone hold a bible like that (and) I've been preaching since I was a little boy. If he's watching us today, I'd like him to open that Bible and reach Ecclesiastes 3: 'To every season, there is a time.' I'd like him to understand what time it is,' Sharpton said. 

'We cannot use Bibles as a prop. For those that have agendas that are not about justice, this family will not let you use George as a prop. Let us stand for what is right.'

Some people have highjacked this guy's death to score political points yes.

But if after watching everything and you still think that racism is something to play with,then I don't know what happened to your sense of reason. The blacks really want to send a message that they can't tolerate the hate and discrimination anymore.

Rest in peace man. I wish your death could be infuriated to fight your killers.
Meanwhile, my fellow Nigerians can't even stand up to protest against series of killings happening in Nigeria especially in the North.

Well, all these will be futility if racism continues. No be today blacks don dey kpef in questionable ways...

There have been tons of blacks killed sparking outrage and huge media following, has anything changed? No

The real deal will be getting justice for the man by his killers getting maximum sentence as well as another of such killings not happening in the future, else it will just be a cycle of kill->rants::repeat & rinse

Just like that no more social distancing, face mask, the media are doing all this cause it’s election year, if they’re not, check this graph...

I have relatives in US that couldn’t bury their dad this time last week due to stringent laws, passed by same politicians... btw, the coroner’s office said the man had the virus sometimes in April... why can’t they practice what they preach, bury the man in peace and work to fight racism, not all this photo OP

Every 4 years to steal black votes and go back to their status quo after getting it

The celebs should keep this energy, especially in Chicago, cause blacks are killing blacks their daily


For your info... amy klobuchar was the chief prosecutor when the cop was reported, 17 times she didn’t do anything, about it (she’s doing a lot to get the black supports so Biden can choose her as VP) grin grin Minnesota, Minneapolis, are controlled by Democrats, their AG is a Democrat, but they still want you to hate on the man that has only spent 3:6 years in office...hard for me to believe trump will be 74 years old this month and still have the agility and strength to respond to every situation

For your info, blm movement was funded by soros, a Jewish man, before you attack me for no reason, search bout him on DuckDuckGo

If American is a racist country as the media have said, there are other countries on earth, take their visa and stop going to a racist country

Peace
