Former President George W. Bush is urging Americans to see the reality through the 'eyes of the threatened, oppressed, and disenfranchised.'

If you are using ad-blocking software, please disable it and reload the page.Although Mr. Bush does not mention President Trump by name, Mr. Bush's message has a different tone than his fellow Republican. While Mr. Trump has expressed his condolences over Floyd's death and called himself an"ally" of peaceful protests, he has called himself"your president of law and order" and has vowed aggressive action on protesters.

It remains a shocking failure that many African Americans, especially young African American men, are harassed and threatened in their own country. It is a strength when protesters, protected by responsible law enforcement, march for a better future. This tragedy — in a long series of similar tragedies — raises a long overdue question: How do we end systemic racism in our society? The only way to see ourselves in a true light is to listen to the voices of so many who are hurting and grieving.

Kenny Stills, Eric Reid criticize NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's statement on George Floyd's deathNFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's statement on George Floyd's death rang hollow for NFL players Eric Reid and Kenny Stills. Both spoke out on Twitter. .As does all those claiming they'd support BLM if the protest were peaceful. Just a slap in the face. NFL should be shamed. They did Trumps dirty work by attacking those who kneeled in peaceful protest. Too little too late. They were on wrong side of history then and we remember. 👍👍 Since 2000, there were hundreds of arrests of NFL players. No wonder this guy has sympathy for the rioting criminals.
