Eddie Glaude on death of George Floyd: 'Police don't value the lives of black folk'

Thursday, May 28, 2020

Eddie Glaude, Chair of the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University and MSNBC contributor, on the death of George Floyd: “Police don’t value the lives of black folk. When you look at the face of that officer, he doesn’t seem to assume that he has his knee on the neck of a human being … He doesn’t hear him call out for his mother. He doesn’t hear him crying. This is the America we live in.”
