As Nation Mourns Texas Massacre, Obama Did THIS!?!

Former President Barack Obama

( – As the United States of America grieves and mourns for the 19 schoolchildren and two teachers massacred by a crazed gunman at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, this week, former President Barack Obama inserted the anniversary of George Floyd’s death into the nation’s attention.

In a tweet thread on Twitter [you can see the actual tweets further down this post], Obama wrote:

“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer. His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.

“In the aftermath of his murder, a new generation of activists rose up to channel their anguish into organized action, launching a movement to raise awareness of systemic racism and the need for criminal justice and police reform.

“Inspired by these young leaders, @MBK_Alliance launched a Reimagining Policing Pledge for mayors and cities ready to take action. If you’re wondering how you can help make things a little better today, here are some ways to get involved.”

Obama then provided a link to his website
