Since the killing of George Floyd on May 25th (by officer Derek Chauvin & three other officers who have yet to be charged), there have been a lot of people and celebrities speaking out about the injustice! We are tired of seeing police officers (who are supposed to protect and serve the communities) killing innocent black people. George Floyd was accused of trying to pass a counterfeit $20 bill, arrested… then killed in police custody (in handcuffs, by a knee to the neck and all on live video).
Jay Z & Beyonce are a couple of the celebrities who have also used their platforms to speak out on this senseless act! After calling the Minnesota Mayor, Jay-Z has issued a statement calling for the prosecution of all four of the police officers involved in the brutal death of unarmed Black man, George Floyd.
“I prevail on every politician, prosecutor, and officer in the country to have the courage to do what is right. Have the courage to look at us as humans, dads, brothers, sisters, and mothers in pain. And look at yourselves.”~ Shawn “Jay Z” Carter
The beautiful Beyonce also issued a video message demanding JUSTICE!!!
We’re broken and we’re disgusted,”
“We cannot normalize this pain. I’m not only speaking to people of color. If you’re white, Black, Brown and anything in between, I’m sure you feel hopeless by the racism going on in America right now.”~Beyonce
I am so happy to see so many people speaking out about the injustice! Especially to see so many white people literally laying their life on the lines and protesting with us… Although they do not understand, they stand with us and that is they change we all need to see!
