Stephen Jackson wasn't prepared to see his long-time friend George Floyd being murdered at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer when someone shared the viral video with him. Jackson actually had to take a second look after being told that this was not just another innocent African-American man murdered that he was watching, but someone that he said was basically family.

Jackson spoke directly and passionately on his "brother," defending his character before a peaceful rally after George Floyd's murder.  Jackson who has never been one to hide his true feeling on and off the court demands justice for his slain friend.
