George Floyd’s brother, , revealed that he spoke with the former Vice-President recently, saying:

I never had to beg a man before but I asked [Biden] could he please, please get justice for my brother, please. Because I need it, I just don’t want to see him on a shirt like those other guys. Nobody deserves that.”

Chauvin has been arrested and charged with third-degree murder as protests continue to erupt in various parts of the country (and the globe) in protest of racial injustice that is often meted out to blacks.
