Nature seems to have higher standards than the Left. Mural of George Floyd is ripped down in a lightning strike. See the “before” and “after” images below. Tell us, guys, is a lightning strike proof of systematic racism? pic.twitter.com/u812oNMhHt— Dinesh D'Souza (@DineshDSouza) July 14, 2021

George Perry Floyd Jr. was an African American man murdered by a police officer during an arrest after a store clerk suspected he may have used a counterfeit $20 bill in Minneapolis. Derek Chauvin, one of four police officers who arrived on the scene, knelt on Floyd's neck and back for 9 minutes and 29 seconds.
