This video from the USA says about itself:
‘Stand your ground’ shooter charged with manslaughter
14 August 2018
Michael Drejka, 48, was arrested in the fatal July shooting of Markeis McGlockton, an incident that was caught on video.
By Andrew Gillum in the USA today:
My name is Andrew Gillum, and I’m the Mayor of Tallahassee, and a candidate for governor in Florida.
After an argument over a parking space, Markeis McGlockton was shot and killed by a white man. His family had to wait nearly a month before his killer was charged — all because of the “stand your ground” law.
Let’s be clear: stand your ground has no place in a civilized society.
This is a license to kill, plain and simple — will you add your name to our petition calling for the repeal of “stand your ground” laws in America?
“Stand your ground” laws allow anyone who feels afraid to murder under the label of “self-defense”. But we know how that works in practice — studies show that it is disproportionately used against people of color.
But we have a chance to make a difference — I just joined community leaders, faith leaders, and some of Markeis McGlockton’s family members at a sit-in in the governor’s office to protest these unjust and racist laws and fight back against one of Trump’s loyalists, Governor Rick Scott. And our protest WORKED — his killer has now been charged with manslaughter. We can change things if we speak up.
Thank you for taking a stand with me.
Mayor of Tallahassee

DeSantis under fire for saying Florida shouldn’t ‘monkey this up’ by electing Gillum, who is black: here.
FLORIDA MIDTERM FACE OFF IS PERFECT FOR BOTH CAMPS In Ron DeSantis and Andrew Gillum, Florida Republicans and Democrats both got the opponents they wanted. And it’s already turned nasty, with Trump-backed DeSantis telling the state not to “monkey this up” by electing Andrew Gillum, who would be the state’s first African-American governor if elected.

BLACK FLORIDA CANDIDATE MOCKED BY MINSTREL ROBOCALL A white supremacist website in Idaho sent out a racist robocall against Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. Speaking in an exaggerated minstrel dialect, an actor pretends to be Gillum, saying: “Well hello there. I is the negro Andrew Gillum, and I be asking you to make me governor of this here state of Florida.” [HuffPost]
