Jamie Foxx spoke at a social justice rally on Friday afternoon (May 29) at Minneapolis City Hall in honor of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died after a white police officer forcefully restrained him and placed his knee on his neck for nearly ten minutes.
“We’re not afraid to stand. We’re not afraid of the moment. I think that what you saw on television, to watch this man plead for his life,” Jamie said. “As I sit with my two daughters, my nephews .. what it does is, it over-complicates everything as a black man trying to tell his son or his daughter how to function in life. Even the things that we’ve taught them don’t seem to work.”
