Waynel Sexton, who taught Floyd at Frederick Douglass Elementary School in Texas, uncovered his writing assignment from 1981 in which he described his aspirations of becoming a judge, CNN reported.
Floyd — who went by his middle name, Perry — answered a prompt for a Black History Month lesson about students’ plans to make a difference.
“When I grow up, I want to be a Supreme Court Judge. When people say, ‘Your honor, he did rob the bank, I will say, ‘Be seated.’ And if he doesn’t, I will tell the guard to take him out. Then I will beat my hammer on the desk. Then everybody will be quiet,” he wrote.
Nearly four decades later, his death has prompted calls for justice after a white cop, Derek Chauvin, was accused of killing him by pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes in Minneapolis.
