WATCH: George Floyd’s Brother, Terrence Floyd, Condemns The “Destructive” Thugs And Rioters Who Are “Overshadowing” George’s Desire For Peace
George Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd, spoke out against the outbreak of violent riots that are “overshadowing” George Floyd’s desire for peace and unity.
Since the beginning of the violent riots, more than four thousand people have been arrested and at least three people have been killed. An African-American federal officer was shot and killed in Oakland, California.
“I do feel like it’s overshadowing what’s going on, because like I said, he was about peace,” said Terrence Floyd. “He was about unity. Well, the things that’s transpiring now. Yeah. They may call it unity, but it’s destructive unity. It’s not what he was about. That’s not what my brother was about.”
Terrence went on, “If you’re angry, it’s OK to be angry. But channel your anger to do something positive. Or make a change another way because we’ve been down this road already.”
Terrence Floyd spoke about his brother George’s uplifting spirit as he prepared himself to visit the spot in Minneapolis where his brother was killed on Memorial Day.
Terrence described his brother as a “gentle giant” who was able to motivate people to think positively even in difficult and challenging situations.
Reverend Kevin McCall urged the rioters to stop the violence and turn their focus toward seeking justice for George Floyd.
“We need to call for peace and unity. We can be able to call for justice, but we need peace as well and we need the peace of God, the path of all understanding. The Bible says be angry, but sin not,” said Revered McCall.
“So it’s good to protest and we want to continue to keep the protest while we continue to call for justice, but we need peace. We don’t need looters. We need peace and the best way that you can be able to give peace is on your knees praying and asking God to hear our cry,” the Reverend continued.
McCall told viewers to respect the Floyd family’s wishes so that police department policies can be reformed peacefully.
