George Bush calls on US hard look at its Trump tragic failures

Hits: 0

Former President George W . Bush called on the US Tuesday to take a hard look at its “ tragic failures, ” citing racial injustice in America in a statement addressing protests which have roiled the country over the past week .

“ It remains a shocking failure that many African Americans , especially young African American men , are harassed and threatened in their own country, ” Bush said in the statement expressing anguish over the death of George Floyd , suffocated beneath the knee of a white policeman in Minneapolis on May 25.

The killing has unleashed a nationwide wave of civil unrest unlike any seen in the US since the 1968 assassination of rights leader Martin Luther King Jr .

“This tragedy – in a long series of similar tragedies – raises a long – overdue question : How do we end systemic racism in our society?”

Bush , who was president from 2001 – 2009, wrote .

“ It is time for America to examine our tragic failures , ” he stated.

Most of the protests which have swelled in cities across the country since Floyd ’ s death have been peaceful , but some have degenerated in to violent riots.

White House incumbent Donald Trump , who has rejected the president’ s traditional role as a force for unity during moments of national crisis, on Monday threatened a military crackdown to end the demonstrations .

Bush did not mention his fellow Republican by name in his statement .

But he made a point of insisting on the need “to listen to the voices of so many who are hurting and grieving. ”

“ Those who set out to silence those voices do not understand the meaning of America — or how it becomes a better place, ” he says .

“The heroes of America – from Frederick Douglass to Harriet Tubman , to Abraham Lincoln , to Martin Luther King Jr . – are heroes of unity. ”
