Due to the current media coverage of the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, I learned George Floyd was accused of using a fake $20 to pay for snacks. The cashier said he didn’t think Floyd may have known it was fake.
I passed a fake $20 once. Apparently it was a time of much fake money, as the cashier immediately used a pencil-like thing, then said, “It’s fake, do you know where you got it?”
Since I’m white and female, there was no issue. I walked away still alive and without the police.
People of color, female or male, deserve equal treatment, not racism and death.
