Sharpton’s presence at Floyd’s memorial service was about more than publicly showing his support for his family and the Black Lives Matter movement while responsibly adhering to public health guidelines. Sharpton was also tasked with delivering a eulogy in Floyd’s memory.
He not only spoke about the father of three, but delivered his own message about what the protests mean at this time.
“We don’t have a problem denouncing violence and looting, but it seems like some in the criminal justice system have a problem looking at a tape and knowing that it’s probable cause and it takes a long time for you to go do what you need to do,” Sharpton said during the memorial service.
