This is what leadership looks like

In a five-minute video released on Friday, Biden urged the country to come together and address the “national crisis” of police brutality against black people.

“The original sin of the country still stains our nation today,” he said. “We need justice for George Floyd.”

“We are a country with an open wound. None of us can turn away. None of us can be silent,” Biden wrote in an accompanying tweet. “None of us any longer can hear those words — ‘I can’t breathe’ — and do nothing. We must commit, as a nation, to pursue justice with every ounce of our being.”
