George Floyd’s Brother Demands UN Intervention in Alleged ‘Racism’ in America

Philonise Floyd, brother of George Floyd, has directly called on the United Nations to launch a probe into alleged “systemic racism” and “police brutality” in the United States, as reported by the New York Post.

Floyd addressed the Geneva forum via video on Wednesday, describing his brother as being “tortured and murdered” in his final moments, before falsely declaring that such treatment “is the way black people are treated by police in America.” He begged the Human Rights Council to establish “an independent commission of inquiry to investigate police killings of black people in America, and the violence used against peaceful protesters.”

Such a request represents the motivations by globalist forces to intervene in the affairs of a sovereign nation, which is one of the primary reasons why the United States withdrew from the Human Rights Council two years ago.

Floyd’s statements are also based on blatant falsehoods, as statistics show that black Americans are actually less likely to be killed by police than white Americans, a trend that has been consistent for the last four years. In 2019, there were only 10 instances of unarmed African-Americans killed by police over the course of the entire year.

Floyd’s claims also reflected the false narrative that protesters in America have been mostly peaceful, when many such protests in the country since George Floyd’s death have led to widespread riots, arson, looting, assault, and murder, as well as numerous acts of vandalism against historic monuments.
