Is there a Tshirt with all the tour dates?

Being black is not a choice,we were born this way, and we will die this way

So sad, dead for being black and has gone back to his Creator who has made him black

Druggie, criminal, ex-con, attempted arm robberer...yeah, celebrate him. Makes sense.

Things are wrong, agree, but what is the fix, what specific actions?

Too bad we can’t bury our own covid dead, but y’all can have what is really a political rally. You helped fuck over 40 million people that lost their jobs

GeorgeFloyd PoliceBrutality

Which crime did he commit there? I’m just wondering why he’s going to any place he ever lived. He obviously wasn’t a good citizen in some of those places

🤔 didn't an autopsy determine that he had Covid-19 ? So, HE can have a grand funeral with hundreds or thousands of visitors, but someones grandmother who died in a nursing home and happened to have covid-19 has to 'wave goodbye' from a distance and limit funeral to 10 or less?

I thought ppl who have covid must have their caskets covered in plastic

So, it took three murders by the Democrats before they got what they wanted. YEAH, I said it! Your deflecting from the court cases coming to the Obama Administration. This shit is going to backfire on the Mainstream Media, Politian's, and traitors in the country like Obama.

Rest in Peace, George. 💜

I am all for the symbolic funerals across the nation. but can we let his body rest? I hope we are not dragging his casket from MN to NC then Houston for all the funerals.

A real angel. Nobody should be the victim of a murder which Is what this was' but he should not be held up as a patron saint. GeorgeFloyd GavinNewsom ericgarcetti

weird the word corona is in the background. I know it's dumb but dam.

The Buffalo gestapo has a long history there. This is why I have been living in exile from Buffalo for decades. -- Jerry Ross, Buffalo Nine Defendant

MLK and Ghandi and US Presidents had a shorter funeral span, it seems. Interesting.

Ok....there it is folks. They don't know the difference between black n white. .ffs


Saying George Floyd 'DIED' makes it sound like the Police Officer Euthanized him because he was otherwise in pain and dying. 'George FLoyd was fucking MURDERED'...

I HOPE I GET A GOLD CASKET WHEN I DIE!!!!🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Rest in perfect peace. The change you weren't while you are alive has started to happen but with a sacrifice(your life), no amount of protest can bring you back no. But History will never forget George Floyd, a man whose death effected change

can I come? the black panthers are cool with me
