YouTube pledged to donate $1 Million in support of efforts to address the social injustice after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
The death of George Floyd on 25th May has completely changed the scenario in US. George Floyd a 46 year old African American died in Minneapolis on Monday while being restrained by Police. In the CCTV footage it is clearly visible A police officer kneeling on Floyd neck as he took his last breath.
Since then protesters are out on street and protesting against White Supremacy and racism under Donald Trump Government. George Floyd, a resident of Minneapolis was accused of using counterfeit $20 note at local deli. Later Donald Trump’s tweet saying “Looting leads to shooting” came as a final blow.
Looting leads to shooting, and that’s why a man was shot and killed in Minneapolis on Wednesday night – or look at what just happened in Louisville with 7 people shot. I don’t want this to happen, and that’s what the expression put out last night means….

People have come together on roads to fight against White supremacy and demeaning the blacks in America.
