Why?

George Floyd’s girlfriend wants us to forgive the cop that murdered him by kneeling on the back of his neck for 9 minutes while he was lying handcuffed on the ground.

I have a few problems with her request, not the least of them being that she is WHITE.

Floyd was Black, and is no longer alive to plead with us to forgive that cop, as he pleaded with that cop for his life.

My second problem with her request is that it feels like it comes from a very Christian standpoint and Christianity has a terrible track record, when it comes to brainwashing it’s followers.
