The post included the information of several organizations that are leading the charge, including the Detroit chapter of the NAACP, Southern Poverty Law Center, Black Lives Matter, and Change.Org.
A number of notable figures within the Hip Hop community have spoken out since Floyd’s death — Killer Mike, T.I., Ice Cube, and Ice-T, to name a few. Last week, Shady resurrected the 2017 Revival track “Untouchable” and urged his fans to “speak up.”
Floyd died on Monday (May 25). He was pronounced dead at Hennepin County Medical Center shortly after arrival. The autopsy “revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation.”
Subsequently, Floyd’s family requested a second post-mortem from famed forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden. In accordance with USA Today, these results are anticipated to be handed down on Monday (June 1) at 2 p.m. CST.
