As protests intensified in most states in the United States, a couple made history while witnessing history.
In a video shared online, a man identified as Xavier Young proposed to his lover in the middle of the street as protesters watched.
The man is seen going down on one knee with a small white box in his hand as he holds his lover’s hand.
Other protesters are seen gathering around the lovebirds with cameras to capture the adorable and memorable event.
Out of excitement, the man throws his glasses down and picks on his lady’s hand to place the ring in its right finger.
The protesters are heard shouting with joy saying: “She said yes”. Wasting no time, the man rose from the ground and quickly rushed to hug his fiancee sealing the moment with a passionate kiss.
The proposal took place during George Floyd’s protests in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The two lovebirds clearly observed COVID-19 measures during the peaceful protests as they had their masks on.
To symbolise the Black Lives Matter campaign, the two were clad in black outfits but the lady’s pants had white stripes on the side.
