Just months after the death of Ahmaud Arbery, and weeks following the killing of George Floyd, SNL’s Alum Jay Pharoah has spoken out.

He’s revealed that he was arrested just days before Ahmaud Arbery while out jogging.

Police had their guns drawn and one even knelt on Jay’s neck when he was on the ground in handcuffs…

With thousands showing their support.

And just two weeks ago, on May 25th, a defenseless black man was killed while in a police restraint.

Where former police officer, Derek Chauvin, proceeded to kneel on his neck, while 3 other officers knelt on his back.

And, in the highly distressing scenes, he could be heard begging with the officers to release him and repeatedly saying “Please, please… I can’t breathe.”

An ambulance arrived and took the unconscious man to hospital but, devastatingly, he was pronounced dead upon arrival. He was only forty-six years old.

Derek Chauvin, the man who had knelt on George’s neck, was finally arrested. But this wasn’t enough…

But George’s death has sparked an outrage like never before.

And they are all marching for one thing: For the blatant racism and injustice in this country to be brought to an end.

Protesters became interweaved with rioters and, as they continue to clash with police, the scenes unfolding across our country have been becoming steadily more violent.

And change needs to happen and, at the moment, this seems like the only way to make it happen.

Thanks to these riots, the Black Lives Matter movement is dominating global headlines, and it has completely taken over social media.

He is now being charged with second-degree murder according to Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.

Let’s not forget that, while Chauvin is the man primarily responsible for George’s death, 3 other police officers – Thomas Lane, J.A. Kueng, and Tou Thao – also played a significant role in the incident.

But alternative footage from the incident shows that 2 other officers were actually kneeling on his back, while a 4th stood on and watched. As reported by the New York Times, it was announced yesterday that Thomas Lane, J.A. Kueng, and Tou Thao have all been formally charged with aiding and abetting murder in the death of George Floyd.

And it’s so important that we continue to speak out and use our voices.

In a way that is very visible.

A two-lane road that coincidentally leads to the White House.

And those who were painting the letters were reportedly commissioned by D.C Mayor Muriel Bowser.

She also added that it doesn’t seem to be temporary support as the paint being used looked like that is used to stripe road lanes.

And he’s revealed that something truly horrific happened to him just a week before Ahmaud Arbery was killed.

When he saw a swarm of cops approaching. He looked at the police and thought to himself that whoever they are looking for is in big trouble.

The police had an incredibly vague description of the man they wanted to arrest. He was black and wearing gray clothing.

With their guns out, Jay was forced to the ground and handcuffed – while he frantically explained that he was not the man they were looking for.

One of the police officer’s kneeled on Jay’s neck in the exact same manner which led to the death of George Floyd.

And Jay has said the only reason he’s come forward is because he could’ve been the next Ahmaud Arbery or George Floyd. He said:
We have the knowledge and we have the power to overthrow. I’m Jay Pharoah, and I’m a black man in America and my life matters. Black lives always matter.
