What is a George Floyd mural doing in Afghanistan?
I mean seriously, the last thing Afghans need to worry about is George Floyd.
Sources are claiming that Taliban forces have reportedly painted over a mural of George Floyd, and have replaced it with pro-state Islamic messaging.
This is part of an effort to cover up murals reflecting pro-American values all over the war torn country.
I don’t care what Taliban fighters choose to paint on walls, but I’m trying to figure out why this mural is even there in the first place?
They need social justice lessons in Afghanistan?
Many took to Twitter to point out this ridiculous development:
The Taliban have started painting over murals left behind from the American occupation. Here they paint over one mural depicting St George Floyd and replace it with proclamations of victory. pic.twitter.com/4mDD5MifAT
