VIRAL VIDEO: Black Man Tells 16-Year-Old Protester To Resist Violence, Urges Him To Find ‘Better Way’ During Floyd Protest

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

A video going viral online shows three black men from different generations pleading for an end to police brutality.

The video starts with a 41-year-old man who is screaming that change is needed in the country. He vocalizes support for the protests before he is confronted by a 31-year-old man challenging his opinion.

The two civilly shout at one another, agreeing change is necessary. The tactic, however, is where they differ.

The 31-year-old man then brings over a 16-year-old boy who was also protesting out of anger on the streets.

He encourages the young boy to “find a better way” as his anger, and the anger of the older man has not resulted in meaningful change.

“He angry at 46, I’m angry at 31 & you angry at 16,” the adult said in the video.

Former city alderman Antonio French said the raw video features “generations of pain.”
