The ex-President thanked young people for their participation in solving the problems that caused the street actions.
Former President Barack Obama expressed optimism, saying that the situation in the United States will improve as young people participate in solving the problems that are driving street protests.
Obama took part in a virtual public meeting hosted by the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, which was opened by Obama in 2014 to discuss issues affecting young African-American men.
In his speech, Obama did not mention anyone by name, including President Donald Trump. At the same time, he said it was time to highlight the problems and “make people in power feel uncomfortable.”
“Don’t lose hope, even if you may be angry… Changes are coming, major changes in our country that will be deeper than anything I have seen in my life,” he said.
According to him, most police officers see their job as to serve and protect and are a “vital part” of the dialogue.
