This has caused outraged deepened of racism in the black community and Africa at large.

It is figured that most prominent in Africa have rubbished the abuse of blacks and to some extent dragging into the taking the lives of many.

Well, the president of the Republic of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo Akufo Addo has added his voice to the uncalled for act and a constant repeat of racist between blacks and whites.

Posting a picture of George Floyd, he wrote;

“Black people, the world over, are shocked and distraught by the killing of unarmed black man, George Floyd, by a white police officer the United States of America. It carried with it an all too painful familiarity, and an ugly reminder. It cannot be right, that in the 21st Century, the United States, this great bastion of democracy, continues to grapple with the problem of systematic racism. On behalf of the people of Ghana, I express my deep condolence to the family and loved ones of the late George Floyd. We stand with our kith and kin in America in these difficult and trying times, and we hope that the unfortunate, tragic death of George Floyd will inspire a lasting change in how America confronts head of problems of hate and racism”
