#BLM We all need to accept that we are different and what happens to George Floyd has made a mark on the world to say racism is stil happening and we need to fix that everybody thought it was finished about 30-50 years ago and more so we need to stop Rip George Floyd 🕊 pic.twitter.com/qes693ileg— Marly Violet Hymas (@HymasMarly) June 9, 2020

@SylvesterTurner just said He will be signing an executive order “BANNING CHOKEHOLDS AND STRANGLEHOLDS. COPS MUST EXHAUST ALL ALTERNATIVES BEFORE SHOOTING. REQUIRED to de-escalate FIRST.” This is the type of leadership we need! I miss you Houston 🧡#GeorgeFloydMemorial pic.twitter.com/rqYjugRlOG— Katy Piske (@kaddy_bear) June 9, 2020
