U.S. Conference of Bishops chairmen issued a similar statement … “We are broken-hearted, sickened, and outraged to watch another video of an African American man being killed before our very eyes. What’s more astounding is that this is happening within mere weeks of several other such occurrences.” “This is the latest wake-up call that needs to be answered by each of us in a spirit of determined conversion.
Racism is not a thing of the past or simply a throwaway political issue to be bandied about when convenient. It is a real and present danger that must be met head on.” See Statement of U.S. Bishop Chairmen in Wake of Death of Geoge Floyd and National Protests.
