Obama urges Americans to tackle racism
US President Barak Obama has urged the men and women in his country to remove racism from the society.
Obama saidat a town hall meeting recorded to be broadcast in prime time, that people have started talking about the problem that exists in the country. He asked Americans not to put themselves in separate corners. The president appeared to offer only suggestions on ways to tackle racism as there were tensions following the killing of black men in few police involved shootings.
"Because of the history of this country and the legacy of race, and all the complications that are involved with that, working through these issues so that things can continue to get better will take some time," Obama said at the town hall meeting.
Obama also took a question remotely from Diamond Reynolds, Philando Castile's girlfriend. Castile was shot by the police allegedly after raising his hands up while his girlfriend had live streamed the aftermath of his shooting bypolice on Facebook. She said she's scared for her daughter's future and asked the president, "What do we do?"
The president said that it is important for the officers to know the community they are protecting and he also pointed out the need to train police officers to avoid biases.
