The death of George Floyd has had societal-changing effects and has led to mass protests taking place throughout the past week. One thing we learned from the tragedy is that former NBA star Stephen Jackson was close friends with Floyd and described him as his "twin." Jackson has been a prominent voice during all of this and a video has emerged of him in Minneapolis with Floyd's daughter on his shoulders. What she's saying in the video makes it a powerful viewing.
"My daddy changed the world!"
Floyd's death kickstarted massive protests to fight against police brutality, racism and injustice.
Jackson has promised to take care of Floyd's daughter and has been thrust into a position to help make change in this country, even if the circumstances that got him to this point are tragic. The former NBA star is using his platform and influence to demand justice for his friend.
