New York Governor Andrew Cuomo: “I am with the protesters, this is an ongoing injustice”

-

At a press conference, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had no problem openly expressing his position regarding the protests that have taken to the streets of the United States following the murder of African-American citizen George Floyd.

“I am with the protesters, I think all well-intentioned Americans support the protesters,” he said.

Regarding Floyd’s death at the hands of the American police, Cuomo said that “it is not an isolated incident.”

“There is a continuity of cases and situations that have been going on for decades and decades. They are chapters of a book, and the name of that book is ‘The continuing injustice and inequality in the United States,'” he said.

To exemplify the above, the Governor presented emblematic cases of African American citizens murdered for racist reasons such as those of Rodney King in Los Angeles in 1991, Amadou Diallo in New York (1999), Sean Bell in New York (2006), Óscar Grant in California (2009), Eric Garner in New York (2014), Michael Brown in Missouri (2014), among others.

“It is a continuing injustice,” Cuomo concluded.
