How taking a knee became a protest symbol

From the football field to the streets of cities around the U.S., this is how taking a knee became a political symbol.

    Who cares about floyd. He was career criminal. Yes it never should've happened. No one should be kneeling during the national anthem. Have some respect for your country

    I am putting some facts before you. From my point of view it is necessary to analyze these facts again, because at this time everyone is blaming each other. At this time, the conspirators are very happy to see the riots happening in America. Perhaps the conspirators are thinking that they have succeeded in their cause. I am starting from February 20, because at that time both the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi and the US President were present in Delhi, despite this, the houses of thousands of Muslim community were set on fire in Delhi and in the presence of police people of Muslim community Was murdered. Riots lasted for three days, but neither Prime Minister Narendra Modi nor the US President expressed regret. After completing his visit to India, a few days after the US President arrived in the US, there was an increase in mortality in New York. All news channels on this issue said that people have died due to Corona virus. But I want to tell you that, three days after reaching America, the President of America demanded the hydroxychloroquine medicine from the Prime Minister of India, and the Prime Minister of India also sent the medicine within two days of the demand without delay. Surprisingly, at the time when the President came to India, 15 people were infected with Corona virus in India and only two people were infected with Corona virus in America. But two days after the US President arrived in America, most Black American and Latin American citizens died in New York. I want to ask all of you, what happened that caused the infection to spread rapidly in New York City? After the death of countless people, the World Health Organization, scientists, politicians and physicians have cleverly accepted that most of the deaths have been caused by hydoxychloroquine medicine... Since 25 March, I was warning that people are dying due to this medicine, but no one believed my words. Everyone said that I am misleading people, but I stick to my point. Every time I said that, doctors and scientists themselves would admit that people are dying because of this medicine. After the death of countless people, today the World Health Organization and doctors are accepting that, most people have died due to this medicine. Now I want to ask all of you, I was misleading people, or the World Health Organization and doctors were misleading. Today I feel very sad that I could not save people. The truth is in front of all of you and now you all have to decide whether it is a game, or a mistake? India sent this medicine to every country. Now I want to ask you, who will you hold responsible for this mistake? At the behest of a leader, all the ruling politicians of the world gave this medicine to the people infected with Corona virus without thinking, and today the truth is in front of everyone. I am very sad because countless friends have died due to negligence. From my perspective, riots and movements are taking place in every country to divert attention from the real cause of death of countless people. Now all of you should assess who is playing the main role behind these riots. Now all of you have to think, at whose behest riots are happening in America, and who is happy with these riots. Three months ago, whatever happened in India, everything is happening in America after three months. All the facts from the beginning till now are in front of you and now you should think that this incident is well planned, or just coincidental.

    Prophet muhammad(pease be upon him) O people,your lord is one and your father adam is one. There is no favor of an Arab over a foreigner, nor a foreigner over an Arab, and neither white skin over black skin, nor black skin over white skin, except by righteosness. Have I not delivered the message?" They said, "The Messenger of Allah has delivered the message." https://youtu.be/HAarpnDLkyk

    I can’t breathe is because you are trying to breath in a land and a house not built for you, yes more will continue to cry I can’t breathe because that is not your home, your home is Africa, brothers and sisters please return to your home land which is Africa, if you thousand of dollars you will become millionaires here in Africa, you are only trying to take part of what doesn’t belong to you, America is not your homeland and will never be, stop trying to take possession of what is not yours, you can drive in Africa without been scared of police 👮‍♀️ shooting at you, Africa is a free land come back and take what is yours
