In a recent interview with MSNBC, Samaria Rice also had some harsh words for Donald Trump and the people of Ohio.
On Sunday’s edition of MSNBC’s AM Joy with Joy Reid, the mother of slain 12-year-oldTamir Rice discussed a range of topics, including her struggles with coping with her son’s death and her disappointment with President Obama for not providing tangible solutions to ending police brutality in America.
“President Barack Obama, I don’t know what you are doing,” Samaria Rice said with disgust. “I don’t know how you are able to sleep at night … Nobody is getting any justice … I am very disappointed in him.”
Rice added, “He did some things, but we are talking about lives being saved.”
On her meeting with Hillary Clinton about racial injustice:
“I feel like she did hear us and that she understands where we were coming from. But we need not for [her] to just understand, but we need some action behind that.”
On her hometown of Cleveland and the people of Ohio:
“I’m wondering what is wrong with Ohio and Cleveland because I live here. I don’t know what is wrong with people up here. Seems like…you know…they’re not woke or something.”
