President Biden took a moment Thursday to honor George Floyd on the three-year anniversary of his death, celebrating him as a “unifying” factor in race relations in America.
“Today, America mourns the murder of George Floyd three years later,” Biden, or somebody associated with him, tweeted.
“I’ll never forget Gianna Floyd’s words: ‘Daddy changed the world,'” he added, speaking of Floyd’s daughter. “He has – unifying people of every race and generation in peace and with purpose to say: Enough.”
Floyd died in 2020 during an arrest involving excessive force by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, sparking nationwide protests and riots.
Chauvin was convicted of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter and is currently serving over 22 years in prison.
Floyd spent many of his adult years in and out of prison.

Biden Calls For Police Reform On Anniversary of George Floyd’s Death
Ah yes, nothing quite ‘unified’ the country the way George Floyd did, as those Mostly Peaceful™ protests and their associated burning, looting, and murder were raging across the country.

Saint Floyd, in the minds of Democrats and President Biden, is the new equivalent of Martin Luther King, Jr., you see.
Beautiful daughter, but he shouldn’t be celebrated.

Separately, President Biden issued a statement posted to the White House website explaining how George Floyd’s death cast a spotlight on racist policing in America and called for further reforms.
“George Floyd’s murder exposed for many what Black and Brown communities have long known and experienced — that we must make a whole of society commitment to ensure that our Nation lives up to its founding promise of fair and impartial justice for all under the law,” he said.
“As a Nation, may we ensure that George Floyd’s legacy and the legacy of so many others we also honor every day are not solely about their deaths, but what we do to honor their memory,” added Biden.
Yes. We certainly remember. pic.twitter.com/QxlE2rbXV4

Race Relations Have Always Been a Disaster With Biden in the White House
Of course, Biden celebrating George Floyd as a great race unifier seems awfully odd when in reality, recent polling shows race relations getting worse in America.
A Rasmussen poll indicates a plurality of Americans views race relations in that manner. The poll was published in February of this year.
You’ve done nothing but divide our country more than it already was, we must unite again and learn to love.

But then, that’s a trend at this point. A Biden in the White House equates to racial tensions and divisions in America.
In May of 2009, mere months into Obama and Biden’s first term, 32% of Americans believed race relations had improved, while only 6% said they had gotten worse. They were relatively unified.
As their second term was winding down, a poll one month prior to the 2016 election showed a majority of Americans believed race relations had worsened under Obama/Biden.
54% said the divide had grown worse, while a very low 16% said it had gotten better. That was a massive 64-point turnaround.

By contrast, a Gallup poll in January 2020 indicated that satisfaction with race relations and the position of minorities in America had significantly increased under President Donald Trump.
That should, in reality, be no surprise. Trump wanted Americans of every skin color to succeed. Democrats only want Democrats to succeed. And that can only happen when they’re promoting division and reverse discrimination.

I am so sick of Biden, his fellow Democrats and the MSM gaslighting us! Race relations are worse, thanks to Biden and company’s continued rhetoric demonizing white people. With that we see outright segregation again, only now it’s those whose skin is white being banned from Black/Brown only dorms, graduations, schools/classes and even some restaurants. And the main stream media jumps on any story that they can blame on “White Supremacists” and then drop it like a hot potato if the perpetrator turns out to be a non-white.
Mr. Biden, you cannot be charged with exuding hate, because you are an idiot. You confuse, as did the court, manslaughter with murder. Derek Chauvin’s intent was not to kill Mr. Floyd. That would have been murder. It is similar to you welcoming the influx of people from all over the world to cross our borders illegally. You do not intend to destroy our country, that would be treason. That’s why you are an idiot, and cannot be responsible for your actions due to a lack of ability to understand the results and their relationships. Once again, your support for abortion, indicates that if you understood that those are human beings, you would be responsible for millions of actual murders. Obviously you are incapable of this understanding and should not be consigned to the gas chamber or lethal injection. After all, you are an idiot. And that goes for everyone who voted for you and/or condones your actions.
Great speech from our brain dead president. I’m not grieving the death of George Floyd the crackhead or fentanyl user. I did not know him and had I known him , I would not have associated with him. His death unified nothing. The Dems used his death as a club to the head of the American public to divide us even further. They made a scumbag into a martyr. Not to be mention the riots(peaceful) that followed. The public got to see real racism at work. Where democrat figureheads encouraged the juvenile delinquents and ppl living off the government tit to proceed to burn loot, destroy innocent businesses and kill innocent ppl.
The imbecile has lost all his marbles!!!!!!
The dimwit certifiable out of his mind BiDum is hiding in Camp David rotting for truffles in the woods as thff we Deficit he created is closer
Biden is full of beans and lies.
The really infuriating thing about this is, there are plenty of IDIOTS who will go along with his lies.
Biden is delusional—–IMPEACH HIM and the BIDEN CRIME FAMILY
Biden is living in some other space universe! He is totally out of touch with reality!
No, Biden now George Floyd have not given hope or healed anyone. As long as people believe in Evolution (proven to be a lie) and think there are different “races,” there will be no uniting. God creat INE race, the Human Race, different cultures, different languages that He created at the Tower of Babel, and different shades of brown from light to dark. There is no true racism, but there are hearts full of sin and hatred for others based on something as ridiculous as someone’s “color.” Now imagine this, had the Dahomey people in Africa not sold black slaves and other black people sold slaves of different colors, gosh, then hundreds of thousands of soldiers would not have had to die to free slaves. Guess none of that matters. Just let your hatred of mothers run rampant. Biden, Obama are the worst…they cause the problem and then blame conservatives. Can’t wait for Christ Jesus to come back.
racist joe for segregation shaking hands with KKK member really
