George Floyd: US children explain why they are protesting


Following the death of black man George Floyd in police custody on 25 May, protests have swept across the US.

He had been arrested for allegedly using counterfeit money to buy a pack of cigarettes.

A memorial for Mr Floyd was held in Minneapolis on Thursday and, in his eulogy, Reverend Al Sharpton said this had been “the story of black folks”.

People of all ages have been protesting, including children who say “you can’t judge a book by its colour”.
