New York – Americans have erected a monument made of white stone in honor of the African-American George Floyd, who died at the hands of police officers. The monument was opened on the Day of the Liberation of the slaves.

According to the authors, the white sculpture should symbolize the strength and dignity of the black victim of the police. The two-meter memorial was placed in New York.

The Floyd memorial scandal was not the first in the United States. A similar sculpture, made of bronze, was installed in New Jersey. Then the Americans called the monument an “idiotic way” to spend taxes.
