White, middle-aged residents in Merrick, New York, shouted “White lives matter!” at George Floyd protesters on June 2 (MORE VIDEO BELOW).
One woman said the murder of George Floyd had nothing to do with the George Floyd protests, and she called the man — filming her — a “coward “for wearing a COVID-19 mask.
I am so disappointed with my hometown of Merrick, NY right now. Absolutely disgusted with this lady from last night, and I’m sure she wasn’t the only person either. They were there to peacefully protest and your ignorance hindered their right to do so. pic.twitter.com/nmssGP2832— cj🌈 (@colljamosh) June 3, 2020
Community members here in Merrick and surrounding towns adamantly opposed to Nassau police trying to figure out a way to allow protesters to walk up Merrick Road. As of now, police are blocking the protestors. @News12LI pic.twitter.com/F9Qu1g8NSH— Shari Einhorn (@ShariEinhorn12) June 2, 2020
