In US news and current events today, it can be helpful to look back at examples set by former presidents to understand how leaders like Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and even Dwight D. Eisenhower and George W. Bush have tackled the systemic issues of race, racism, and civil rights throughout our history.

These powerful statements and speeches from former President Obama, JFK, LBJ, Ike, and Bush are in stark contrast to the leadership of President Donald Trump, who has yet to substantially weigh in on the issues behind the George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality, police racism, and police violence. President Trump appears more interested in defending confederate flags and statues than weighing in on BLM, which in contrast to former presidents, makes his silence all the more curious.
