President Joe Biden on Tuesday called the murder conviction of former Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd a "step forward" but said such a verdict was much too rare in a country plagued by systemic racism.
"This can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in America," Biden said in remarks from the White House.
But Biden said the guilty verdict is "too rare" and "not enough".
Last May George Floyd was murdered after police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for more than nine minutes.
“It was a murder in the full light of day and it ripped the blinders off the whole world to see," Biden said.
“Systemic racism is a stain on our nation’s soul.”
"This is the time for this country to come together, to unite as Americans," he added in nationally televised remarks.
However, the President warned of those who might exploit the raw emotions following the verdict.
"There are those who will seek to exploit the raw emotions in the moment -- agitators and extremists who have no interest in social justice," he warned.
"We can't let them succeed."
It comes after killer cop Derek Chauvin has been found guilty of the murder of George Floyd on all counts prompting cheers from the crowd at the courthouse after a historic trial.
The 45-year-old former officer faces a maximum sentence of 75 years in jail after being found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
The racially diverse jury - anonymous and sequestered from the outside world - deliberated for around 10-and-a-half hours before reaching their verdict on Tuesday.
President Biden spoke with the family of George Floyd following Derek Chauvin's guilty verdict.
Attorney Ben Crump shared a video of the moment the president called to speak with Floyd's family and speak on how some justice is being served.

"Nothing is going to make it all better," Biden said. "At least God, now there's some justice."

"We're all so relieved," he said, adding, "Guilty on all three counts."
"It's really important," he added.
