‘Giant step forward’: Biden & Harris demand ‘racial justice’ reforms in George Floyd’s name after Chauvin verdict

“We still have work to do,” said Harris, who spoke first on Tuesday evening. “We still must reform the system.”  

“America has a long history of systemic racism,” Harris added, arguing that it’s “holding our nation back from realizing our full potential.”

Systemic racism “is a stain of our nation’s soul, the knee on the neck of the nation’s black Americans,” argued Biden. Protests touched off by Floyd’s death in May last year, he said, “unified people of every race and generation in peace and purpose to say enough.”

Citing Floyd’s alleged last words, “I can’t breathe,” Biden said that this was “a chance to change the trajectory of this country.” 

Instead of his customary parting words – wishing divine blessing on US troops – Biden ended his remarks with “may God bless George Floyd and his family,” before adding, “This can be a moment of significant change.”
