George Floyd hologram to tour U.S. and replace Confederate statues
NY Daily News, Jul 28, 2020




George Floyd lives on in light.

A hologram effigy of the 46-year-old Black man killed by a since-fired Minneapolis police officer in May will tour the U.S., traveling roughly along the route of the 1961 Freedom Rides.

A collaboration between the George Floyd Foundation and Change.org, it will stop at five sites in North Carolina, Georgia and other Southern states.

Tuesday night, Floyd’s family will launch the week-long project in Richmond, Va., where the hologram will replace the statue of Robert E. Lee. It’s the first public unveiling of the George Floyd Hologram Memorial Project, organized by Change.org and The George Floyd Foundation.

On Monday his family held a preview of the installation at the Jefferson Davis memorial on Monument Ave., the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. Protesters removed the statue of the former president of the Confederacy in June, the Times-Dispatch noted.

“Since the death of my brother George, his face has been seen all over the world,” Floyd’s brother Rodney Floyd said in a statement from Change.org. “The hologram will allow my brother’s face to be seen as a symbol for change in places where change is needed most.”

Seeing it brought mixed emotions, he said at the launch.  “It warms my heart knowing the love that my brother is spreading around the world,” Rodney Floyd said, but added that it was also surreal.

Now they're just rubbing their BS in our faces.   What's next?   They demand that we all prostrate ourselves and pray to St. Floyd???
Time for unity in America! (better late than never)

I didn't know much about Change.org so I moseyed on over to their web site.  Take a look at their topics.

Good grief!  A 6 time felon, going on his 7th and had prison time, is made a 'saint"?  A porn star, into child & adult sex trafficking?
Died of heart attack,  body filled with meth & alcohol and fentanyl. Some even say this is a hoax. That Floyd is still alive.
He pistol whipped a pregnant woman, while robbing her in her home.   I can't think of the name, but he lives in the swamp, and Mike Meyers plays the part of this 'green' ogre.  I hate senior moments. Tip of the tongue.  Anyway, it looks SCARY. 
SHRECK!    Found it in my memory files!  What do some of you think about the below?  I don't know enough about technology.........
