CBS News reported that ever since May 25, which is when George Floyd died, police in the U.S. killed 288 people. 102 were white, 59 were Black, 42 were Hispanic or Latino, five were Asian, two were Native American, and 78 others’ race was unknown.

Iran PressAmerica: The report explained that Black people and persons of color are killed at disproportionate rates because 13% of the U.S. population is Black but 20% are killed by police, which means that Black people are three times more likely than white people to be killed by police. 

The death of George Floyd, an African-American man, occurred in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25, 2020. It has caused a lot of unrest in American cities.

George Floyd died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. The video of Floyd pleading with the officer, who pressed a knee into Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes until Floyd stopped moving, sparked widespread outrage and mass protests across the country and other parts of the world.
