Thousands of people took to the streets of Minneapolis on Saturday as the protests against racism and police brutality following George Floyd’s death did not cease.
Congresswoman from Minnesota state where the violent killing took place, Ilhan Omar, made an appearance at the demonstration to address the locals.
The state’s representative, a naturalized Somalian refugee fighting for women and black Americans’ rights, expressed her full support to the resident suggesting to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department.
Omar said the local police “is rotten to the root” and compared it to cancer suggesting that and its abolishment will “allow for something beautiful to rise.”
