Washington, D.C. – Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32) today released the following statement in regards to the death of George Floyd and the President’s inappropriate tweets:
“Like too many before him, the tragic injustice of George Floyd’s death at the hands of someone who is supposed to protect and serve lays bare the pain of generations of racial inequality and the deep wounds within our nation.
“I’ve experienced prejudice and racism in my own life, and I understand the heartache that many are going through. We must meet this moment with peaceful reflection, justice, and real change.
“I was deeply disturbed after reading the President’s tweets. We need leadership that will guide us toward justice to heal America and bring us together, not sow divisions.”
