NYC to Pay $13 Million to Protesters Arrested During George Floyd Riots

One does not simply arrest black people.

Whites must pay for their impetuousness.


The city of New York has agreed to pay $13 million to hundreds of people arrested during the 2020 George Floyd demonstrations, according to attorneys for the plaintiffs, who said it was the largest class action settlement ever paid to protesters in the United States.

The protests in New York City and around the country followed the May 25, 2020, death of Floyd, an unarmed Black man killed by a Minneapolis police officer who knelt on Floyd’s neck for about nine minutes while he repeatedly cried out for help, saying “I can’t breathe.”

The city agreed Wednesday to pay $9,950 to each of the more than 1,300 protesters arrested by New York police officers during various protests between May 28 and June 4, 2020, according to a release by the attorneys for the plaintiffs.

“While making a massive number of protesters financially whole is an immense victory to be celebrated, the city’s taxpayers will need to keep shelling out millions until City Hall stops bowing to the worst violent whims of the NYPD,” Remy Green, one of the plaintiff attorneys, said in a statement, referring to the New York Police Department.

People arrested on other charges, such as arson or property destruction, will be excluded from the settlement, which still requires approval by U.S. District Court Judge Colleen McMahon.

The reason blacks are above the law is that they are morally superior. They are the true inheritors of the earth.

It’s like the old stories, where goodness is symbolized by darkness, and the evil is symbolized by the light.
