A representative for West, 42, confirmed to Fox News that the rapper has established a college fund for the 6-year-old daughter of George Floyd, Giana. Floyd was one of the African-American citizens whose recent deaths have sparked the protests.

Floyd died while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn., when Derek Chauvin, a police officer, knelt on Floyd’s neck for nearly minutes while he gasped for air and pleaded for his life.

West’s reps also confirmed to Variety that he has donated $2 million to various charities associated with Floyd, as well as Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor — also African-American citizens that have died in incidents assumed to be racially-motivated.

USA Today reporter Grace Hauck also tweeted on Thursday that West was spotted at a “Justice for George Floyd/CPD out of CPS” rally in Chicago after he spoke with organizers of the event.

Protests in favor of the Black Lives Matter movement have spread across the globe since Floyd’s May 25 death.

  1. Floyd’s death is a HOAX!!!
    Floyd, the cops, ALL crisis actors

  2. I believe it’s all our right to protest if we want but we Dont have right to burn down our community or steal from the stores. This is wrong.
    If I could I would leave this country and live somewhere else Idolove my country but it’s destroying itself with this socialist agenda that is trying to creep in. That’s not for me.

    • I, understand the protest. One dumb cop should not cause people to get killed, destroy business. spit on and shot at. Using the protest to steal is so wrong, wrong.

  3. It is all about ME, even though this is a good gesture it’s after the fact, people who would have despise this man if he were alive are jumping on the band wagon looking for acceptance or something. I would compare it to an old movie where the the Calvary arrived after the Indians scalped everyone.

    Truly it is a discussing shame this man, black, brown, white or what ever to be killed for trying to pass a counterfeit bill, and because he apparently resisted some dumb cop killed him, so now he is another Criminal Black Martyr. And because a lot of Blacks Criminals apparently resist arrest and get killed they all become hero’s and martyrs. Does no one think that is taking it a little too far? Am I to believe there are not any good Black people who could lead with respect rather then hate? This so called Martyr not only caused his own death, he ruined 4 cops lives, and he killed 7 other people as well as billions of dollars in property damage, and countless small business owners.

    While Black Lives Matter thugs go around making white women kneel to them and Black Athletes want to demean the culture of standing proud and tall saluting or with your right hand over your heart for the flag, and national anthem. I am far from being a racist, but close to joining in as this is a deplorable response for a Criminal action. No justice No Peace, and No rule of law big happy quack!

    I can not believe am sure we are such a dumb Mob just waiting for a crisis to so we can go out and show our stupidity to the world. When the elected officials of this country disregard the rule of law for their POLITICAL GAIN, it’s no wonder the masses resist. ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL no matter how you spell it, Crimes should be held according to the laws, the laws should be just for all citizens, and that is not happening. Unions so not allow people to be fired in most cases, try firing someone who is in the government, how many police officers or any other organization of government do something wrong and just get moved to another position. Ethics in Congress is a sham, talk about being in a position of privilege and their not all white. What they are is Professional Self Centered Rulers. If they were real servants of the people they would have stood up and quelled this fiasco before it got off the ground.

    It was not right for this bad cop to kill this criminal just because he resisted, while justice was being served, but it was also not right to let people go off half cocked with the wrong negative. How is the retired Police officer who got killed OR ANY INNOCENCE PROPERTY OWNER going to get JUSTICE?
    WHEN DOES PEACE PREVAIL?
