Comedian Jay Pharoah shared a video of a police officer kneeling on his neck like George Floyd. It ended being a case of the cops mistaking his identity because “matched the description”. Jay Pharoah released the footage of the cop kneeling on his neck to shed more light on the controversial issues regarding racial injustice within the policing system.
When you compare the police kneeling on Jay Pharoah’s neck side by side with Derek Chauvin kneeling on George Floyd, you can definitely see the similarities.
Luckily for Jay Pharoah the cop didn’t kneel on his neck nearly as long as the over 8 minutes George Floyd had knee on his neck, and he was be able to reveal his story to the world today.
