The 44th president of the united states has reprobated the ruling government concerning the inadequate management of the pandemic.
The former president said, ”More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” he said.
”A lot them aren’t even pretending to be in charge,” he added.
He noted the shooting of Ahmed Arbery, a 25-year-old black man, who was killed while jogging through a residential street in Florida.
A former police officer and his adult son have been charged with murder following the killing.
”Let’s be honest,” said Mr Obama. ”A disease like this just spotlights the underlying inequalities and extra burden that black communities have historically had to deal with in this country”.
”We see it in the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on our communities, just as we see it when a black man goes for a jog and some folks feel like they can stop and question and shoot him if he doesn’t submit to their question.” The former president ended.
