George Floyd's brother urges peaceful protests

Large crowds of mourners on June 1 paid their respects to George Floyd at a growing memorial outside the Cup Foods grocery store, where the unarmed black man lost his life while in police custody.

Terrence Floyd, the victim's brother, told the gathering that he wanted people to get educated, vote and not destroy their own communities. Floyd's death was the latest in a string of similar incidents to prompt an outcry over racism in law enforcement.

It reignited outrage across a politically and racially divided country that has been hit hard by COVID-19, with African Americans accounting for a disproportionately high number of coronavirus cases.
