As the world continues to grapple with the injustice of George Floyd’s death, one Los Angeles family has been forced to face a similar tragedy. Keenan Anderson, cousin of Black Lives Matter Founder Patrisse Cullors and a 31-year-old teacher, was killed by the LAPD during a confrontation in late April. In a shocking video recently released, Anderson can be seen struggling against officers before being tased and later pronounced dead at the scene. Read on to learn more about this heartbreaking story and how it is connected to the fight for justice for George Floyd.
The muder of Keenan Anderson is yet another example of the police brutality that black people face in America. It is also a tragic reminder of how little has changed since the murder of George Floyd. We must continue to fight for justice and hold the police accountable for their actions.
One of the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, Patrisse Cullors, has a cousin who was tased by police officers in Los Angeles, California. The man’s name is Keenan Anderson and he was stopped by police for riding his bike on the wrong side of the road. When police officers attempted to search Keenan Anderson, he ran away. The officers chased Kizzee and tased him when they caught up to him. Keenan Anderson died as a result of the tasing.
Patrisse Cullors, founder of Black Lives Matter, said that her cousin was shouting because he was in fear for his life. She said that the tasing was deadly and that it should never have happened.
This statement highlights the ongoing problem of police brutality against black people in America. The fact that someone would feel the need to shout this statement before they were killed by police speaks volumes about the state of race relations in America.
The aftermath of the tragedy has seen a renewed focus on the Black Lives Matter movement and its goals. The movement has gained new momentum in the wake of George Floyd’s death, and it is clear that there is still much work to be done in order to achieve equality and justice for all.

The tragic death of George Floyd has been a catalyst for much needed change in the US. Unfortunately, despite all of the progress that has been made since then, there are still issues that need to be addressed. The incident involving the BLM founder’s cousin is just one example of how systemic racism and police brutality can lead to devastating consequences. We must continue to fight for justice and accountability so that others don’t suffer like this again.
