George W. Bush : It's Time To Listen, Not Lecture

George W. Bush: George Floyd's Death Means It's Time To Listen, Not Lecture

Former President George W. Bush released a statement Tuesday about the police killing of George Floyd but emphasized it wasn’t his place to say how the country should handle its systemic racism problem.

Instead, he said, it was time for Americans to recognize “the repeated violation” of the rights of Black Americans who didn’t get “an urgent and adequate response from American institutions” in a statement posted on the George W. Bush Presidential Center website.

"Laura and I are anguished by the brutal suffocation of George Floyd and disturbed by the injustice and fear that suffocate our country. Yet we have resisted the urge to speak out, because this is not the time for us to lecture. It is time for us to listen.

“It is time for America to examine our tragic failures ― and as we do, we will also see some of our redeeming strengths," he said.
