It's the worst civil unrest in the US since 1968. 

On May 25, 2020, the death of an African-American man, George Floyd, in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States while handcuffed and lying face down on a city street during an arrest has resulted in protests nationwide, some of which have turned violent.

One of the more outspoken poker players, Daniel Negreanu, was left nearly speechless.  Hard for him.

"I don't even know what to say," he tweeted.

Jason Mercier tweeted:

"The people of our country want justice... But what we really need is Jesus"

Noah Schwartz tweeted:

"Because ppl are tearing it down .. it isn’t even about George Floyd anymore it’s much deeper then that . Very disheartening to witness . They ripped Miami to shreds yesterday."

Mike "The Mouth" Matusow continued his ardent defense of US President Donald Trump while taking a back handed swipe at him.

"I'm not angry your tweets make no sense it's not trumps fault theres pandemic not his fault they had to shut down greatest economy ever it's not his fault 4 dumb ass cops killed a man . It's his fault hes terrible leader that's all"

Celebrity poker player James Wood offered his take. 

 

Kara Scott tweeted "America has a racism problem.  The world has a racism problem".
