Sen. Tim Scott said that he sees a change in the way that white Americans are discussing race and racism, and believes there will be lasting change resulting from the outcry over the killing of George Floyd.

“I think for the first time, in a very long time, the response from the white community is very consistent with the response to the black community,” Scott, a South Carolina Republican, said in an interview on “The Long Game,” a Yahoo News podcast. “Generically speaking, that means that we’re having an American family response to a crisis in our family. And that’s what it should be like.”

Scott said he does not think attempts to address systemic change in the wake of Floyd’s death will be swept aside in the days and weeks ahead. Yet already, some conservative pundits are dismissing the idea that systemic racism in policing is a problem, much as President Trump’s national security adviser Robert O’Brien denied this past weekend that it exists.

Story continuesScott has been outspoken in calling out violence during the protests over Floyd’s death. Acts of violence and looting during protests have varied from city to city, and the issue has become a touch point for debate over whether too much or too little attention is being paid to it. There have also been some people publicly arguing that violence is necessary to effect political change.

Sen. Duckworth also delivers a sharp rebuke of Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, for 'carrying out the president's twisted idea of what military is supposed to do,' and that the use of the troops to control protests 'is not the appropriate use of our military.'

Klobuchar saysMinnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison is increasing charges against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin to second-degree murder in George Floyd's killing and also charging the other three officers involved in the incident, according to a tweet from US Sen. Amy Klobuchar. Doesn't that just make it easier for him to get off? Even the guy that just stood there? So, it takes riots and constant news cycles just for justice to apply ? It amazes me. The US justice system is dysfunctionnal at its core.

Tech VC calls out Apple's Tim Cook for no public statement on Floyd - Business InsiderBusiness Insider is a fast-growing business site with deep financial, media, tech, and other industry verticals. Launched in 2007, the site is now the largest business news site on the web. Tim Cook does not exist for vkhosla 's pleasure. This Khosla is the same guy who fought a lawsuit preventing the public from accessing the beachfront. And he wants to introduce his retarded diet with veggie mayonnaise. Keep your stupid eating habits to yourself Khosla. Tim Cook doesnt even care his business partners lock up minorities in concentration camps. Hes a nazi like the others. Anything that piece of shit says is invalid So your telling me at this time your biggest concern is why Apple didn't post a black photo or release a statement instead of asking why all these democrat leaders are failing their cities and people?!
