George Floyd’s sister has spoken out and revealed how her family believes that a change for the better is coming following Joe Biden’s victory.
As 52-year-old LaTonya Floyd told Mirror’s Christopher Bucktin, the president-elect’s recent presidential race win restores hope to end racial injustice in the United States.
“Joe’s victory comes as a huge relief. After he won, the strongest message he has given is that it is now time to heal what has become a deeply divided country,” she told the Mirror.
“Joe is about unity and bringing people together, whether they voted for him or not, he will fight as hard for everyone – something Trump failed to do.”
As the 52-year-old added, she believes that Joe Biden is “a decent man” fit to lead his country because “he worked hard precisely for what he has and what he wants to have, not just for himself but for us all.”
According to the sister of 46-year-old George Floyd, who died in May after former police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for several minutes, she hopes that Biden and Harris “bring an end to racial inequality” and ensure that her brother’s death was not in vain.
Speaking to the Mirror, LaTonya went on to suggest that Biden knows exactly what to do to “build one of the best economies in the last two decades.”
“What is most comforting, is that Joe has promised to make sure those in poverty, those who need it most, get the help they deserve. No longer will there be forgotten millions,” LaTonya told the outlet.
“Hopefully people, particularly African Americans and Asians will achieve the trust in the government we should all have. Working for the people not for the president and his people.”
