Bernie Sanders says the Chauvin verdict is 'accountability' but not justice, calling for the US to 'root out the cancer of systemic racism'
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders said the Derek Chauvin verdict was "accountability," but not justice.
  • "We must boldly root out the cancer of systemic racism and police violence against people of color," Sanders said.
  • Chauvin was found guilty on all counts in the death of George Floyd.
"The jury's verdict delivers accountability for Derek Chauvin, but not justice for George Floyd. Real justice for him and too many others can only happen when we build a nation that fundamentally respects the human dignity of every person," Sanders said in a tweet.

"The trauma and tragedy of George Floyd's murder must never leave us. It was a manifestation of a system that callously devalues the lives of Black people," Sanders added. "Our struggle now is about justice—not justice on paper, but real justice in which all Americans live their lives free of oppression. We must boldly root out the cancer of systemic racism and police violence against people of color."
