George Floyd, the 46-year-old Minnesota man who died at the hands of white cops, urged the younger generation to put an end to gun violence in newly emerged video, according to a report.
“It’s clearly the generation after us that’s so lost, man,” Floyd says in the undated footage that circulated on Twitter on Wednesday before urging them to “come home,” the Daily Mail reported.
“Our young are clearly lost, man, clearly lost, man,” he says. “I don’t even know what to say anymore. You youngsters just going around busting guns in crowds, kids getting killed.”
Floyd also expressed his disgust after hearing that an adult had apparently condoned the use of firearms.
“Man, I knew it was crazy then a n—- my age saying it and condoning this s—, bro,” Floyd says.
“You know what I’m saying, and half them young n—- shooting guns go home and their knees shaking at night, but they don’t show it to nobody because they aren’t tough then,” he adds.
“Come on, come on home, man. It’s going to be you and God. You’re going up or you’re going down.”
Floyd died in custody Monday after he was handcuffed and pinned to the ground by a Minneapolis police officer, according to videos and media reports of the incident.
Viral cell phone footage of the incident shows Floyd pleading for air as white cop Derek Chauvin presses his knee into Floyd’s neck.
Floyd’s death has sparked emotional protests on the streets of Minneapolis and his family has called for the four cops involved in his arrest to be charged with murder.
