The death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American man has sparked a series of ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests, from Minneapolis and New York to Berlin, Idlib, Dublin and Barcelona. George Floyd was pinned to the ground unarmed and handcuffed, with a cop’s knee to his throat for more than eight minutes.
As the world is protesting against this police brutality and racism, a clip of George’s daughter, shared by former NBA player Stephen Jackson has been making rounds on the internet. The little girl can be seen saying – “Daddy changed the world” with a heartbreaking smile on her face.
Twitter is in awe of this young girl’s strength:
