Barack Obama is reminding Black people to stop using the pointless slogan "defund the police," because the election is over.
The government was never serious about defunding police departments. But the slogan served its purpose by riling up a certain community and fueling civil unrest over the summer.
The former president, who many believe won his third term in office, said, "If you believe, as I do, that we should be able to reform the criminal justice system so that it's not biased and treats everybody fairly, I guess you can use a snappy slogan like 'Defund The Police,' but, you know, you lost a big audience the minute you say it, which makes it a lot less likely that you're actually going to get the changes you want done."
Obama told Peter Hamby on Snapchat's Good Luck America, "If you want to get something done in a democracy, in a country as big and diverse as ours, then you've got to be able to meet people where they are," and "play a game of addition and not subtraction."
