Some of George Floyd’s children denounced the violent protests that took place across the United States over the past weekend, encouraging peaceful protests in memory of their father instead.
“The violence is not the right way to do it,” Connie Mason Floyd told KBTX. “Now, this is beautiful, but the violence, it won’t solve nothing.”
“Tearing up things, it’s not going to solve anything,” Quincy Mason Floyd said. “My dad is in peace and we have to be the ones to deal with all this stress. It’s going to be tough to get over this day by day.”
The Floyds moved from Houston to Bryan, Texas, with their mother more than 15 years ago. Quincy said he was a young child when he last saw his father.
