[ # ] Viacom’s powerful tribute to George Floyd
June 2nd, 2020 under Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, VH1/MTV


Yesterday at 5p, for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, several Viacom stations, including Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, and MTV went black. That is the amount of the time that the murdering police officer had his knee on George Floyd’s neck. As Floyd’s life was leaving his body, he screamed, “I can’t breathe.”

Those three words were written on the black screen as we listened to someone struggling to breathe for that amount of time. Sit and listen to each breath, and let your anger take over you. That is why we peacefully protesting in the streets. That is why we are saying never again. This needs to stop. No one deserves to die like that, and no one ever should again.

Floyd’s voice was silenced, ours will speak louder for him. This needs to end now. Let’s work on a solution so that Floyd’s, and all of the innocent people who were murdered by bad cops, deaths were not in vain.

We are all people who bleed red, and we need to stop judging people by their skin color. We need to judge them for who they are as individuals.
