Ghanaian award-winning actress, Lydia Forson has added her voice to the ongoing killings of black people in America.
This was said when George Floyd was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis. George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed face down in the street.
Two other officers further restrained Floyd and a fourth officer prevented onlookers from intervening. During the final three minutes, Floyd was motionless and had no pulse.
Officers made no attempt to revive him, and Chauvin’s knee remained on Floyd’s neck as arriving emergency medical technicians attempted to treat him.
According to the actress Lydia Forson, the minds of blacks must change and work towards success.
Black people have endured 400 years of slavery and torture despite showing love to their oppressors and it’s about time an action is taken.
Lydia reiterated that this is the time for the world to cause a change especially regarding how black people are been treated across the globe.
