Barbara Lee said : “George Floyd’s tragic murder shows how much work we have to fix the relationships between law enforcement and black and brown people,” “We have seen far too many young men and women of color murdered by police, for as little as driving their car, riding public transportation, having a cell phone, or just being in their own homes. Police officers are supposed to defuse violence — not inflict it on black and brown communities. While the majority of police officers approach their job in a professional manner, we cannot allow black and brown bodies to be targeted, attacked, and killed with impunity. It’s going to take a lot of work and a serious reckoning with our society’s ingrained racial biases to stop this violence. We need to restore the proper role of police in our community – as public servants who are here to protect everyone, not just those they deem worthy of protection. Being Black in America should not be a death sentence” External link

This is a matter of survival for countless Americans.

Barbara Lee said : “George Floyd’s tragic murder shows how much work we have to fix the relationships between law enforcement and black and brown people,” “We have seen far too many young men and women of color murdered by police, for as little as driving their car, riding public transportation, having a cell phone, or just being in their own homes. Police officers are supposed to defuse violence — not inflict it on black and brown communities. While the majority of police officers approach their job in a professional manner, we cannot allow black and brown bodies to be targeted, attacked, and killed with impunity. It’s going to take a lot of work and a serious reckoning with our society’s ingrained racial biases to stop this violence. We need to restore the proper role of police in our community – as public servants who are here to protect everyone, not just those they deem worthy of protection. Being Black in America should not be a death sentence” External link

This is a matter of survival for countless Americans.
