Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Watch: Hundreds of Black Surfers Chant George Floyd's Name”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

An organization of black surfers held a moving tribute to George Floyd on Saturday, with hundreds of people paddling out on the water, raising their fists in the air, and chanting his name. Floyd was killed while being arrested by four Minneapolis police officers, and his death, along with the deaths of other unarmed African-Americans by police, have inspired protests across the country that are now extending into their second week.

The event, as announced on the Instagram page for the Black Surfing Association of Rockaway Beach, New York, invited supporters to “paddle out for George Floyd.”

“RAIN OR SHINE IT’S ON!!” announced the caption, along with an emoji of a raised fist.
