In US news and current events today, former President Barack Obama, who has largely stayed out of mainstream politics since leaving office, has spoken up about the George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests that have been sparked across the world.

For Obama, George Floyd is just the latest in a long line of racial injustices and inequity that have existed longer than the country has, and in his message to the Black and African American communities, he offers his support and encouragement for fighting for peaceful change. In the full Obama speech, he reminds the country that it was founded by revolution and protest, and that civil rights must be fought for.
