Here’s a question: What if George Floyd had made his way to Knoxville, Tennessee in late 2006? Being a druggie, Floyd would probably have made the acquaintance of one Lemaricus Davidson. And Davidson and Eric Boyd could have asked George Floyd to go along on that January night.

How many times have we seen someone with George Floyd’s kind of life story involved in a horrific crime, sometimes even the lone or main perpetrator? I had been thinking along those lines, but your reprinting the account of George Thomas’ racist statement brought it home.

Had George Floyd been in the Chipman St. house instead of George Thomas (or gone with Boyd and Davidson) would the result have been any different?

No different at all. Same way. The Floyd bay just bad seed and always has been.

Floyd might still be alive today in prison--with the rest--instead of being a deceased,bogus black hero.By not traveling to Knoxville,Floyd bought enough time to fill his body full of street drugs the next few years and be around in 2020 to unwittingly cause the ridiculous events that have transpired since his arrest for passing a counterfeit bill.
