The protests over George Floyd’s killing by a white police officer have spread from Minneapolis across the country. Another round of protests was held around Florida on Sunday, capping a weekend of demonstrations around the state over the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd. Many protests were largely peaceful across the state Sunday with thousands gathering in Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, Stuart, and Tampa.
Demonstrators revealed the pent-up anger over institutional racism nationwide as the case of Floyd, who died when an officer knelt on his neck, renewed anger over other recent cases involving African-Americans.
