A “George Floyd Autonomous Zone” has been created in Minneapolis that has a list of “rules for white people.”
According to the bulletin, white people must abide by these ridiculous rules in order to enter the area, which was created around where Floyd died last May.
Entering the area as a white person comes with potential risks if you make the mistake of behaving in a “problematic” manner.
All visitors are asked to wear face masks and act with “humility,” but a lengthier list of rules for white people explains how they will be treated differently.
The rule sign to the George Floyd autonomous zone in Minneapolis has additional rules for white people. Since forming, the area has seen increased violence, criminal activity, drug abuse & even a murder. https://t.co/uifR9Y1GWn

Whites are asked to “decenter yourself”:
“Be mindful of whether your volume, pace and movements are supporting or undermining your efforts to decenter yourself,” states the advisory.
The patronizing tone continues with a demand to “contribute to the energy of the space, rather than drain it.”
The rules also state that white people should seriously consider whether taking photos is appropriate and to seek consent from anyone they photograph, despite the whole area being public.
The rules also encourage whites to intervene if they “witness white folks doing problematic things,” which presumably includes doing anything other than engaging in slavish worship for the 21st-century deity that is George Floyd.
Below is a close-up screenshot of the bulletin:
Black Lives Matter groups routinely issue demands of white people for their events, some of which enforce outright segregation.
Protesters that appeared to be associated with Black Lives Matter in New York reacted to the Derek Chauvin verdict by harassing diners and demanding white owners of restaurants “get the f**k out” of the city.
Unruly protests broke out in numerous major cities last night despite Chauvin being convicted on all counts.
A video shows BLM agitators yelling at diners, “Get the f**k out of New York! We don’t want you here.”

“We don’t want your money! We don’t want your f**king taquerias owned by white men!” the crowd chants before another demonstrator suggests that the mob “take 30 percent” of their income.
The group later marched across Manhattan Bridge while chanting “one solution, revolution” as they carried a banner displaying bloody handprints and the words “abolish the NYPD.”

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd on Tuesday afternoon.
Chauvin, who was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter has been found guilty on all charges.
Politicians, mainly on the Democrat side of the aisle, have seized the Floyd case and used it as a soapbox to call for more police reform.
Then there was California Rep. Maxine Waters, who caused controversy when she called for protesters to be “more confrontational” if Chauvin was not found guilty of murder.

After the prosecution and defense gave their closing arguments in the case on the death of Floyd, the judge in the case said that Waters’ comments made this weekend could be used if there’s an appeal.
Judge Peter A. Cahill absolutely scorched Waters in his response, in which he declined to declare a mistrial in the case.
Last week, Waters was heard at a protest for Floyd and Daunte Wright, who was also killed in a confrontation with police.
“I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that says guilty guilty guilty,” she “And if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
When reporters asked what people should do if there was not a guilty verdict she said, “We’ve got to stay on the street. And we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
