I never expected to see black and white people together in small town Mississippi standing against racism and police brutality. Citizens of Petal, MS came together at city hall to protest comments made by Mayor Hal Marx regarding the murder of George Floyd by four Minneapolis, MN police officers and to demand his resignation.
In response to someone on Twitter the mayor commented, "If you are talking about the incident in MN, I didn't see anything unreasonable. If you can say you can't breathe, you're breathing. Most likely that man died of overdose or heart attack."
