George W Bush claiming that there is "systemic racism" among police

In talking about George Floyd's death, Bush said:
"This tragedy — in a long series of similar tragedies — raises a long overdue question: How do we end systemic racism in our society? The only way to see ourselves in a true light is to listen to the voices of so many who are hurting and grieving. Those who set out to silence those voices do not understand the meaning of America — or how it becomes a better place."
Obviously, while Floyd's deaths apparently shows extremely bad policing, I don't think that the evidence supports the claim of systemic racism by the police. Even in Floyd's case, t don't believe that there is yet evidence of racism on the part of the officer who apparently killed him, though I am interested in being corrected if I am wrong.
