George Floyd’s Death: ‘This Shouldn’t Be “Normal” In 2020 America’ – Barack Obama Explains

Barack Hussein Obama II, the 44th President of the United States has reacted to the death of George Floyd.

George Floyd died on Monday after a Minneapolis officer knelt on his neck. Barack Obama discussed meticulously and highlighted that Minnesota authorities investigate the issue thoroughly.

In his words;

“This shouldn’t be ‘normal’ in 2020 America. It can’t be normal. If we want our children to grow up in a nation that lives to its highest ideals, we can and must do better.

“It was fall mainly on the officials of Minnesota to ensure that the circumstances surrounding George Floyd’s death is investigated thoroughly and that justice is ultimately done.

“But it falls on all of us, regardless of our race or station – including the majority of men and women in law enforcement who take pride in doing their tough job the right way, every day – to work together to create a “new normal” in which the legacy of bigotry and unequal treatment no longer infects our institutions or our hearts.”

“It’s natural to wish for life “to just get back to normal” as a pandemic and economic crisis upend everything around us,” he said.

“But we have to remember that for millions of Americans, being treated differently on account of race is tragically, painfully and maddeningly “normal” – whether it’s while dealing with the healthcare system, or interacting with the criminal justice system, or jogging down the street, or just watching birds in a park.”
