The death of an unarmed black man after a police officer knelt on his neck has sparked outrage, prompting the rapper Ice Cube to tweet: “How long will we go for Blue on Black Crime before we strike back???”

A video surfaced on Monday (25 May) of George Floyd being arrested in Minneapolis by a white police officer.

It shows the police officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck while ignoring his protests that he could not breathe. Floyd later died.

Four Minneapolis police officers have been fired over the incident, which occurred after they were called to reports of a forgery in progress with the suspect appearing under the influence.

After Ice Cube’s tweet was criticised by some of his followers, he replied: “Anybody coming at me for what I said ain’t ready to do s***…”

Scores of people in Minneapolis planned a protest on Tuesday evening outside the Cup Foods corner store where the incident took place.

Many artists in the US  reacted against the incident including Card B, Meek Mill and many more.
