Tamar Braxton Reacts To Death Of Black Minneapolis Man, George Floyd, Who Died Pleading “I Can’t Breathe” As Police Officer Uses Knee To Pin His Neck To Ground
It’s no longer news that four Minneapolis police officers have been fired for their involvement in the death of a black man. George Floyd, 46, died because one of the cops pinned him down to the ground with his knee to the neck for about eight minutes and even as he pleaded, “I can’t breathe,” the white officer failed to get off the man.
Floyd was heard begging, “Please, please, please, I can’t breathe.” “My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Please, please. I can’t breathe.”
“I CAN’T BREATHE”: Video shows George Floyd, a black man that police say was a possible “forgery” suspect, pleading with Minneapolis cops for air as they press a knee into his neck. Floyd loses consciousness and later dies.

Onlookers outside the Minneapolis deli urged the officer to get off the man that he couldn’t breathe.
“You’re stopping his breathing right now, you think that’s cool?” one man says. “His nose is bleeding. Look at his nose!” says a woman.
However, the police officer doesn’t budge but continued to use his knee on Floyd’s neck pinning him to the ground.
Tamar Braxton has reacted to this via her Instagram page. She shared six fading “I can’t breathe” with the caption, “Lord please be the strength to this mans family. We are not animals. We are human. We are black. We are tired. Its enough‼️”
