Michelle Obama releases statement on “systemic racism” coming from the White House and News

Friday afternoon, former First Lady Michelle Obama released a detailed statement on “systemic racism” coming from the White House and news.

This comes after the completion of the RNC and Trump’s keynote speech.

Obama writes “I’m just devastated by the shootings in Kenosha. And I can’t stop thinking about what our kids are seeing every day—and our obligations to them going forward. ”

In the statement Michelle Obama says “These past few months, I’ve been thinking a lot about what our kids are seeing every day in this country — the lack of empathy, the division stoked in times of crisis, the age-old and systemic racism that’s been so prominent this summer,”

She continues “Sometimes they see it on the news. Sometimes they see it from the White House Rose Garden. And sometimes they see it from the back seat of a car.”
