Does George Floyd represent most black guys? Do most black guys personally relate to him and who he was, what he stood for?

    Police is part of your life.  US History is slave mastery. Change is impossible.  Evolve or we have to do it for you.

    They just don't want cops killing them, they're funny that way.

    Most black men don't have a history of petty criminality.  HOWEVER, they all know that they could become, unarmed and not threatening anyone, the victims of overzealous police officers.  It's happened plenty of times, to criminals and non-criminals alike.

    In that sense, they certainly identify with Floyd, even if their lives have been entirely different from his.

    I have a black orthopedist.  This guy is a graduate of an Ivy League medical school, and his son is attending another one.  He's been stopped by the police over and over again for no other reason than that he drives nice cars. They seem to assume he's a drug dealer.  He's had to give his son "the talk" several times -- how to behave when the police stop you for no evident reason, even though you're rightly pissed off, so that you don't get killed.

    Do you know any white people who've routinely had to do that with their kids?  Black people feel the need to do it all the time.

    No, but they realize that what Chauvin did could happen to them, because we have  lot of racist POSs like JoeDemented.
