Poison Drummer Rikki Rockett Attends Protest For George Floyd

POISON drummer Rikki Rockett attended the June 4 protest in Santa Clarita, California over the death of Minnesota man George Floyd at the hands of police. His 10-minute video report on the experience can be seen below.

Rikki wrote, in part: “Some of the hatred is so deeply rooted that when someone tries to make sense of it, it simply will not make sense on an intellectual level. I mean this on both sides. Black people are so hurt by so many years of oppression that it is just explosive at this point. Conversely, it’s easy for white folks like me, who have been brow beaten for racism that we never felt, to be fed up. The danger is in becoming racist yourself by allowing that emotion to take hold and allowing a narrative that supports that to take hold.” Via Blabbermouth
