George Floyd death: Minneapolis mayor calls on city to offer ‘radical love’ amid anger

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey addressed the recent violent protests in the city in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody after an officer was seen on video kneeling against Floyd’s neck. Frey said that the emotion seen was the result of “so much anger and sadness” ingrained in the black community, not just from Floyd’s death but 400 years of racial inequality. He said the anger was not just understandable but “right,” and called on people in the city to offer “radical love” and for non-black communities to understand that anger.
