Spike Lee posts video re George Floyd killing

Filmmaker Spike Lee has posted a powerful video of the George Floyd killing. The film intercuts between the alarming similarities between his work of fiction in the film Do the Right Thing, where a black man is choked by police and the deaths of not only Floyd, but also Eric Garner, who was famously killed by police in New York in 2014. For the first time we hear the pleas of bystanders begging Minneapolis Police to stop kneeling on Floyd’s neck. Warning: this film contains offensive language
