He’s not snorting?
He is wearing his wife beater
Only in a sick society can a career criminal who died of a drug overdose get his own statue.
How close is the nearest adult bookstore. I have a friend looking for a copy of the George Floyd porno.
(It’s assumed “he” can score some fentanyl or an 8-ball close by?)
George is resting, after a hard day of passing counterfeit currency, and terrorizing pregnant women.
Is he holdin’?
How is the Secret Service investigation into that counterfeit cash ring going?
Finger in mouth.
Go “Monument Avenue” on this racist monument.
Tear the mo fo down!!!!!!!!!!!!
WTF is a Ras Baraka?
He was once known as Leroy Jones, author of a play titled “The Toilet.”
These are the people held up as “heroes” for black kids: career criminals, gang members, people who resisted arrest and were subsequently shot, drug lords, etc. It is WAY past ridiculous, even laughable, that a career criminal and drug user, whose own actions led to his death, should be “memorialized” with a statue and a piece of public land to put it on. What disease did this bum cure? How many people did he save in an heroic dash to a burning car? What nefarious government policy did he enlighten the public against and take action to stop it? NONE OF THE ABOVE. They should melt down this pathetic statue and use the metal to make plumbing fixtures. At least they have a use.
Not very Woke ~ that. Borderline perpetuating multiple racial stereotypes considering the circumstances of his FUBAR life. Some one needs needlessly cancelled over that.
Meanwhile people who have accomplished things have their history canceled because of something they allegedly said or did once upon a time.
It's Newark and it's City Hall. Oh, the city will play pretend for a several weeks, but before long the stench of urine from homeless people will greet visitors to City Hall.
