A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true," Dr. King said."So we’re going to stand up amid horses. We’re going to stand up right here, amid the billy-clubs. We’re going to stand up right here amid police dogs, if they have them.

The ad is signed by Jay, as well as the families of those who've lost sons to police violence , activists , attorneys , radio host Charlamagne That God and is captioned"in dedication to George Floyd. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd."The New York Times
