When asked why it was important for him to be a part of the protest, Romney said, "We need a voice against racism. We need many voices against racism and against brutality,” reports NBC News.
The George Floyd murder is abhorrent. Peaceful protests underscore the urgency of addressing injustices. But violence drowns the message of the protestors and mocks the principles of justice.

No Americans should fear enmity and harm from those sworn to protect us. The death of George Floyd must not be in vain: Our shock and outrage must grow into collective determination to extinguish forever such racist abuse.

The senator has actively tweeted about George Floyd. On May 28, Romney tweeted: "No Americans should fear enmity and harm from those sworn to protect us. The death of George Floyd must not be in vain: Our shock and outrage must grow into collective determination to extinguish forever such racist abuse."
Romney’s own father marched in a civil rights demonstration in the ‘60s.
