'I don't think the world has seen a movement like this'

'Protesters march on DC streets for the 16th day in a row.

Members of the DMV’s legal community organized a March for Justice.

On Saturday, D.C. streets were once again filled with protesters and chants could be heard coming from Black Lives Matter Plaza.

Members of the National Bar Association, and other legal organizations, came together to March for Justice. Walking from Logan Circle to the White House.

"I don't think the world has seen a movement like this, internally among black people we've been talking about this for a long time," DMV Attorney Erick Tyrone said.

Tyrone said time and time again a black death has been caught on tape, but up until now there hasn't been the nonblack support that they are seeing right now. He said George Floyd's death changed that, and weighed on him as he marched for justice.

"What's going through my mind every time that my back was a little sore, thinking about people that had to march further. Every time that my knee got a little sore thinking about people that had their knees beat up,” Tyrone said. “In the moment, the part that bothered me the most is that I wanted to move because it hurt. And I had the privilege of being able to move. To me that is the purpose because George Floyd does not have that privilege anymore." . . .

"I had an incident with a police officer about 14 years ago when I was 25, leaving work late one night and going home and being stopped and snatched out of my car,” Floyd said. “That was one of the reasons why I decided to go ahead and go to law school."'>>>

1. I guess Attorney Tyrone

didn't see the other day when BunkerBoy declared it was a GREAT DAY for George Floyd because the job report showed some increase in employment.
Typical "libtard" lefty refusing to acknowledge the wonderful, amazing work BunkerBoy is doing for us.


(And yes, I do agree, I DO feel that this time IS different - and hope it grows and grows and grows.........

2. Women's march world wide was pretty awesome, of course one day. And totally different context.

This is solid.
