‘I feel anger, hatred, pain, sadness, pity, indignation. Sad for George and for all blacks that suffer from racism EVERY DAY!
‘At Work, In football, at school, ANYWHERE! This has to come to an end, Not tomorrow or another day, it has to be TODAY!
‘Acts of racism must no longer be tolerated. I can’t even tolerate it any more.. WE SHALL NOT TOLERATE. LOVE is intelligence. STOP the violence. STOP racism.’
