George Floyd: Minneapolis pays black social media influencers ahead of white police officer’s trial

The most populous city in the US state of Minnesota, Minneapolis, will pay non-white social media influencers to spread information about the trial of the former white police officer Derek Chauvin, who arrested alleged criminal and drug addict George Floyd shortly before his death. Chauvin is currently being tried for murder.

    “On Friday, the Minneapolis City Council approved $1 181 500 for communication with the community during the trial,” reported CBS Minneapolis. “The City says the six influencers will be intentionally targeting Black, Native American, Somali, Hmong and Latinx communities with their messaging during the trial.” Curiously, each influencer will receive $2 000 as a flat fee, which would allow the Council to actually hire at least 590 influencers, not only six.

    In a statement, the City announced: “The goal is to ‘increase access to information to communities that do not typically follow mainstream news sources or City communications channels and/or who do not consume information in English. It’s also an opportunity to create more two-way communication between the City and communities.”

    Left wing activists in the city fear that the social media propaganda campaign will be aimed at keeping black residents from rioting especially after an autopsy report confirmed that Floyd did not die of asphyxiation. According to The Washington Times, an autopsy report from Hennepin County Medical Examiner concluded that there were “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxiation or strangulation”.

    Thus Chauvin’s actions were not the direct cause of Floyd’s death and he may be acquitted in a fair trial.

    The death of Floyd sparked weeks of riots across the United States as well as globally against alleged police brutality. By June 4, the total number of people who had died or were killed by rioters in the George Floyd Riots exceeded the total number of blacks killed by police officers in 2019.
