1:31 pm
persona burning to the and it still wouldn't be enough. and they are lucky that what black people are looking for a quality and not revenge limiter there please. and again, black man died under the need of a white the lease officer. yeah. you don't get any gama can be in that moment. it became every black life. the captured on video was every person enslaved. every person in chains. every person who lived under the wit, every person lynched from a tree, ordered to the back of the bus every day unless the faceless person was told
1:32 pm
the lives did not matter. the diff, george floyd gives his name to those nameless in his cries, we hear the cries of hundreds of years and the unknown dead. and a world way. i see all those cries and they sound so if this is bought history sounds like to us with bery you know i the. * why do you watch that video and i dare you not to be angry. the you watch
1:33 pm
a video of a police officer thumping the life of a man with his knee on his net for 8 minutes and 46 seconds and excruciating. and when people see that video, they don't see george floyd's life being snuffed out. you know, they see actually the centuries of brutality and racism in this country in america has been here before the race, riots of the 19 sixty's on the streets of los angeles. in the 1990 in ferguson, missouri, the added minneapolis today and the message is the same for black america, the land of the free has never felt truly for it. ah,

me. the wellspring of anger, of actually goes to a centrally unresolved question in the united states, which is at the core of the foundation of the country, which has been founded on slavery in jennifer mag, reasons why supremacy tension we will even like supremacy on to 9 for the black legal inferior grows press on the bus. she rested. san and mother grabbed that rick color from the rear. why, from the front supremacy law of the law, the land and we've had to overcome why finance and pre blood filling inferior judy. even the plan who even was on the fire we've heard george floyds words here in australian prisons. they were david dunn, guy junior,
1:35 pm
his last words in 2015 before he died in the hospital ward of sidney long bay prison. oh, the current found lack of oxygen while he was restrained, was a contributing factor to his death. but it has taken the death of a black man in america to wake us up to what happens here. the black people die here in custody. and that the numbers keep rising and we failed to stop us. i don't believe actually the government have learned anything more than how to hide aboriginal death and cassi from the world. and that's what we're trying to expose here. we need to expose globally what's happening here in australia because we resonate with people like george floyd, we resonate with those families. we resonate with, you know, various tests in custody around the world that are going on the same solar issue
1:36 pm
with every stop you think about it too hard to hear. the slaver was century play masses, or part time mass as they became for angry kilo $5000.00 blacks and about 70 years run the whole town, the tulsa, oklahoma, and rosewood, florida, the magistrate flash alive me. when i see black america, i see part of myself. when i was growing up, black america spoke to me when white astray did not. we are ready. we are friday. we are down friday. we are denied not only level, right, but even human run. totally only way we're going to get some of the pricing right
1:37 pm
away from our side. so must have come together against the common enemy. and black america told me to dream. i have a dream that one day, this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. we hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created. the. those who say black lives matter is a movement we are importing from america. i know nothing of who we are. the ones who came out of the same black churches as jesse jackson and martin luther king. aus was the church of the forsaken, and these men were our patron saints and from black america.
1:38 pm
i learned how to speak back to whiteness. the wind, which we've such a trade on color or religion with this, there are other ways of connecting ben. i'll tell you this when i left this country in 1048, either this can be one reason only one reason where i, when i met a gun, the hong kong matters on the timber to end up in paris on the speech. paris. that's right. i was talking on the theory and nothing words could happen to me. they said it already happened to me here. you talk about making it as a write it by yourself. you won't be able then to turn up all the antenna. but when you live, because once you turn your back on the society, you may dial, you may dot the me
1:39 pm
then flashes fire and stretched out, or you are not the guy and still you fit the description because there is only one guy who is always a guy fitting for description. ah, i think the white imagination has frames that conception of whiteness in a certain direction. and therefore, in order to keep itself segregated superior in its narrative, it had to classify blacks as, as animals. and we see that language being used by presidents like reagan being used by ordinary citizens, being used to talk about michelle obama as 1st lady. so you
