U.S. Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden left his home again to protest the death of a black man in Wilmington, Delaware, Politico writes.
This is the second time in a week that a politician has left the walls of his residence, where he is isolated because of the coronavirus pandemic in the country. On Monday, May 25, for the first time in two and a half months, Biden attended a public event with his wife, Jill, at the memorial to fallen soldiers in a park outside her home in Delaware.
In his Instagram account, the politician published a photo of him wearing a mask standing on his knees in front of a black man and child. Biden also supplemented the photo with stories where the former U.S. vice president is photographed and communicating with other masked people.
“We are a nation suffering from pain, but we must not let that pain destroy us. “We are a nation in fury, but we cannot let our fury consume us. We are exhausted, but we can’t let our exhaustion defeat us,” Biden wrote under the photo. The politician also added that all of the pain we’ve endured must be directed towards a common goal. “And as president, I will help lead this conversation – and more importantly, I will listen in the same way I did today by attending yesterday’s protests in Wilmington,” he promised.
Earlier, the politician explained the protests that broke out in the United States. “It’s right and necessary to oppose such brutality. It’s a purely American response,” Biden wrote. At the same time, he denounced the brutality shown by the demonstrators.
Dozens of cities in the U.S. are protesting, with riots, vandalism, and attacks on police. It all started after the death in Minneapolis of a blackguard, George Floyd, who died after being brutally arrested. Police pushed him out of his car and laid him on the asphalt, and one of them knelt down a citizen of Minneapolis. Floyd started complaining that he had nothing to breathe. The man was taken to the hospital, where he died shortly thereafter.
