It seems like just yesterday the “Gasps Heard Round The World” pierced the most impenetrable hearts.  Those gasps being that of American of Color Georged Floyd in an attempt to breathe as he begged mercifully for police officer Derek Chauvin to take his #KNEEOFFMYNECK and allow him this fundamental breathing right.  Unfortunately, Floyd died during this inhumane police-citizen interaction, and this death sparked protests of police brutality against Americans of Color everywhere. Perhaps this is why Floyd’s death seems like just yesterday-because the conversation never stopped after his tragic and needless murder on May 25, 2020. 

To keep the conversation going, #KNEEOFFMYNECK Week-Celebrated annually May 25-31-raises awareness of the need for police racial brutality and inequality eradication, and accountability in citizen interactions-namely Americans of Color.  #KNEEOFFMYNECK Week is and extension of the #KNEEOFFMYNECK Coalition or Movement aka KOMN (pronounced common) Coalition and registered #KNEEOFMYNECK all founded/started by Global Leader and Equality Advocate Greshun De Bouse.

#KNEEOFFMYKNECK Week 2021 began on Tuesday May 25-the day of George Floyd’s death-with 28 minutes and 46 seconds of silence every hour. The 28:46 represents the 8 minutes and 46 seconds George Floyd was deprived of oxygen, and the 20 minutes represents the minimum number of times George Floyd stated to police officers “I Can’t Breathe,” according to transcripts.  #KNEEOFFMYNECK founder Global Leader and Equality Advocate Greshun De Bouse explains the May 25 on-hour silence aspect of #KNEEOFFMYNECK Week.

Breathing is a God-Given right.  #KNEEOFFMYNECK Week and #KNEEOFFMYKNECK Movement like to remind people of this.  Nearly nine minutes of oxygen deprivation while intermittently pleading with an aggressor at least 20 times to let you breathe because ‘I Can’t Breathe’ is inhumane.  The heinous act of restricting the air passages of a human being to the point of death is utterly despicable. I started #KNEEOFFMYNECK to keep George Floyd and others like him on the minds of people as relates to combatting police racially-motivated brutality and spurring inequality eradication, as well as  greater police accountability in interactions with Americans of Color.

#KNEEOFFMYNECK 2021 started on a Tuesday and ends today on Monday, Memorial Day 2021, but the need for justice doesn’t stop there. De Bouse says the conversation “must keep going.”  You may recall #KNEEOFFMYNECK Founder wrote the I Can’t Breathe: George Floyd Anthem and she also wrote the #KNEEOFFMYNECK Anthem and ditty.  #KNEEOFFMYNECK, KOMN Coalition, #KNEEOFFMYNECKWEEK, #KNEEOFFMYNECK Coalition or Movement, and Global Leader and Equality Advocate Greshun De Bouse are not affiliated with BLM.

Happy #KNEEOFFMYNECK Week
