Just in from @JoeBiden : “We are a nation in pain, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us. We are a nation enraged, but we cannot allow our rage to consume us. We are a nation exhausted, but we will not allow our exhaustion to defeat us.”

I don’t pretend to understand what it’s like to run a news org. But most of tonight’s coverage — across most stations — is focused on violence. Yet thousands in each city are marching peacefully for #GeorgeFloyd . Why not interview the peaceful protestors? They should be heard.

If only our political elites responded to black & brown Americans demanding basic rights as quickly as they respond to billionaires demanding tax cuts.

All over this country, people have protested the horrendous killing of George Floyd in a moving, national demonstration of revulsion. But the nights have been seized by anarchists & looters who appear to have entirely different agendas & only harm the cause of change and reform.

It is easy to look strong and competent on a reality TV show. Reality is harder. We are feeling the absence of strong, competent leadership right now, when we desperately need it.

COVID-19 is very much there and we cannot be complacent. Keep fighting. Wear masks. Wash hands. Take all other precautions. Every life is precious. #MannKiBaat
