"It feels as though there is a difference in life," Angela Underwood Jacobs, the sister of a federal protective officer who was fatally shot during a violent protest in Oakland told Martha MacCallum on Fox News.
"On one hand George Floyd and my brother‘s situations are very different. At the same time they are both African-American men," she went on.
"There has been so much talk regarding George Floyd and his family, which is fine. However, I think, at the same time, that my brother should be recognized as well for literally going into work every day and putting his life on the line for us."
"It saddens me that ... his memory has not been as prevalent in the news, in the media as I think it should be," Jacobs said.
"Not only that" she added, "but I have not received any calls from anyone of color that are leaders in the country, and I'm wondering, why didn’t I get a phone call? Why has someone not reached out to our family to see how we are doing and [ask] how they can be of assistance?"
Jacobs described her brother as a "very warm person" with a "little bit of a corny sense of humor like me."
"He just had that sunny, bright personality, and he was a no-nonsense kind of guy at the same time. And he really loved what he did for a living. He took pride in being a federal officer," she told MacCallum.
"He loved with every piece of his heart, and today, my heart and my family's heart is broken, like so many of his friends as well."
