Former Vice President Joe Biden, speaking via video at George Floyd's funeral, said that right now, the US cannot "again turn away from racism that stings at our very soul."
Biden said that when there is justice for Floyd, the US will be on its way to racial justice.
"We can't turn away. We must not turn away. We cannot leave this moment thinking we can again turn away from racism that stings at our very soul, from systematic abuse that still plagues American life," Biden said.
Biden specially mentioned Floyd's 6-year-old daughter, Gianna.
"I know you have a lot of questions, honey. No child should have to ask questions that too many black children have had to ask for generations. Why? Why's daddy gone?" he said.
