Monday on CBS’s This Morning, former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch called for the nation’s leaders to listen to the “pain” of protesters ostensibly calling for justice for George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis while in police custody.
“I think that what we look for in our leaders and what we hope for in our leaders, particularly our president, is to be heard,” Lynch said. “We want them to hear us. We want them to hear our pain. We want them to lead the entire country. We want them to look at us, even if our experience is not their experience, we want to see empathy and an ability to connect and an ability to say, ‘Even if I’m not experiencing what you’re experiencing, I do see the pain that this is causing. And we as a country will come together and work to heal.’
“That’s what we look to see, and I leave it to people to decide where that message is coming from at this point in time,” Lynch added.
What about the pain the violent “protesters” are inflicting on innocents nationwide?
