Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States: “We are a nation in pain right now, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us. We are a nation enraged, but we cannot allow our rage to consume us.” U.S Presidential Candidate Joe Biden reaction over death of George Floyd.
These last few days have laid bare that we are a nation furious at injustice. Every person of conscience can understand the rawness of the trauma people of color experience in this country.
As President, I will help lead this conversation — and more importantly, I will listen, just as I did today visiting the site of last night’s protests in Wilmington. I will keep the commitment I made to George’s brother, Philonise, that George will not just be a hashtag.
Earlier on while reacting to this inhuman act Joe Biden said that ” If we are complacent, if we are silent, we are complicit in perpetuating these cycles of violence. None of us can turn away. We all have an obligation to speak out”.
Please stay safe. Please take care of each other.
