In statements made on his Facebook Page Governor Murphy states Black Lives matter and George Floyd was killed for being Black.
From Governor Murphys Facebook Page:
George Floyd was killed for being black.
We’ve seen this happen over and over and over again. How many more times will we let it?
As we come together to defeat this pandemic, let us come together to strengthen the bonds that bring us together as New Jerseyans, and as Americans.
Black Lives Matter.
George Floyd should be alive today – not just as a matter of principle or justice, but as a matter of human dignity.
Too many times we’ve gotten a national wake-up call and done nothing.
Justice for George means acknowledging our nation’s centuries-old stain of racism.
