Pope condemns U.S racism and street violence

0 53

Pope Francis called for national reconciliation in the United States on Wednesday, saying that while racism is intolerable, the street violence that has broken out is “self-destructive and self-defeating”.

He called the death of George Floyd “tragic”, said he was praying for him and all who had died as a result of the “sin of racism”, and said he was greatly disturbed by the social unrest that has followed.

“My friends, we cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life,” Francis said.
