Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is condemning the violence associated with protests over the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, saying that while the nation is in pain, “we must not allow this pain to destroy us.”
Biden said in a statement early Sunday that the past 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, from the daily indignities to the extreme violence, like the horrific killing of George Floyd,” the former vice president said.
He added that protesting such brutality is “right and necessary” as well as an “utterly American response.”
“But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not,” he said.
“The act of protesting should never be allowed to overshadow the reason we protest,” he added. “It should not drive people away from the just cause that protest is meant to advance.”…
“We are a nation in pain, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us,” he said. “We are a nation enraged, but we cannot allow our rage to consume us. We are a nation exhausted, but we will not allow our exhaustion to defeat us.”
Biden said if he is elected, he would help lead the conversation, and listen.
“I will keep the commitment I made to George’s brother, Philonise, that George will not just be a hashtag,“ he said
“We must and will get to a place where everyone, regardless of race, believes that ‘to protect and serve’ means to protect and serve them. Only by standing together will we rise stronger than before,” he added. “More equal, more just, more hopeful — and that much closer to our more perfect union.”
Donald Trump on the protests……..
Despite sending out some inflammatory tweets Saturday morning, President Trump maintains he is “not at all” concerned his words might stoke racially-motivated violence in the wake of protests over George Floyd’s death while in police custody earlier this week, claiming that his supporters “love African Americans,” The Week reports.
Said Trump: “MAGA loves the black people.”
“This is like Charlottesville all over again. He speaks and he makes it worse. There are times when you should just be quiet. And I wish that he would just be quiet.”
