Referring to the deaths of George Floyd and Martin Luther King, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Saturday that the U.S. “never lived up” to its founding principle that “all men are created equal” during a Fourth of July video message. “We have a chance to rip the roots of systemic racism out of this country,” he said. “It was an idea that couldn’t be constrained. It survived the ravages of the Civil War, the dogs of Bull Connor, the assassination of Martin Luther King, and more than 200 years of systemic racism. And just weeks ago, the murder of George Floyd,” he said. “Through it all, these words have gnawed at our conscience and pulled us toward justice.” “We remain locked in a battle for the soul of this nation. But believe me – truly – it’s a battle we can and will win if we act together.”
