Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama put out a statement not long after the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial was released, applauding the jury for “doing the right thing,” and stated that despite the conviction, the United States still needs to reach “true justice.”
Because no matter what happens, it’s never enough for the social justice warriors in the world.
Today, a jury did the right thing. But true justice requires much more. Michelle and I send our prayers to the Floyd family, and we stand with all those who are committed to guaranteeing every American the full measure of justice that George and so many others have been denied. pic.twitter.com/mihZQHqACV

In the full letter, the Obamas said that while they believe the guilty verdict was “a necessary step on the road to progress,” that it “was far from a sufficient one.”
“True justice requires that we come to terms with the fact that black Americans are treated differently, every day. It requires us to recognize that millions of our friends, family, and fellow citizens live in fear that their next encounter with law enforcement could be their last,” they said.
The Obamas also called for expanding “economic opportunity” to “too long marginalized” communities.
Guess we’ll be hearing from the Obamas until the end of time, on practically every major issue out there, which is rather unfortunate.
On the flip side, this is proof that nothing that’s done in the name of justice will ever be enough for liberals. That’s because they don’t truly care about justice. They only want to push their agenda forward. And this kind of thing gives them a perfect opportunity to do so.
