Democratic White House hopeful Joe Biden called Friday for justice for George Floyd, the black man killed by a white police officer in Minnesota, and said it was time to heal the “open wound” of systemic racism in the United States. “The very soul of America is at stake,” the former vice president said in remarks broadcast online from his Delaware home. The 77-year-old presumptive Democratic presidential nominee denounced what he called an “act of brutality” against Floyd and said he had spoken with members of his family.
