Enraged. Sickened. Heartbroken. But never surprised. This happens way too often – and the videos that go viral are not isolated events. It seems that only when caught on camera are bigots & MURDERERS even getting “investigated” or fired .. unfortunately, the only way things will start changing is if all these racist, ignorant, monsters (badge &/or not) have to face the consequences- behind bars. && it’s not only an issue with black men being killed by cops … it’s an issue every time we see them being treated, in even non-violent situations, VERY CLEARLY differently than many very-high-risk incidents involving white men; it’s an issue that the President is making dangerous public statements about enforcing the shooting of protesters -rightfully angered by another UNNEEDED KILLING of another black person & DEMANDING JUSTICE WHERE IT IS 100% NEEDED- while exactly 28 days earlier, he tweeted about white protesters, who stood ARMED WITH GUNS protesting a WORLDWIDE HEALTH PANDEMIC as “very good people” urging the Governor to “See them, talk to them, make a deal.” ?????????? This is, too, an issue about the “Karen’s” we see filmed weekly- using someone’s race, as a point to try and push their agenda, while calling the police in situations where their lives are clearly not actually in danger at all….. they’re just plain f***ing racist. EVERY. TIME. feels more disheartening and nauseating because our cries for the Government and Americans to do better seem unheard; but even when we feel like what we do isn’t enough or can’t help, we have to do more. Keep signing petitions, making calls to demand justice, speaking out (this is not just if you have a big platform- it starts in your homes and communities), and fighting to make a difference for every life that has been wrongly taken or effected by THE PANDEMIC OF RACISM. THIS IS ABOUT BEING AGAINST EVERY SENSELESS ACT OF DISCRIMINATION THAT BURDENS THIS COUNTRY.

since watching the most devastating and completely heartbreaking video showing the murder of George Floyd earlier this week I haven’t been able to get his face and his words out of my mind. i’ll never personally experience the pain and fear that many black people around the country go through every day but i know nobody should have to live in fear and nobody deserves a death like George Floyd and too many others. speaking up is long overdue for the rest of us. we’re currently dealing with two horrific pandemics in our country, and we can’t sit back and ignore the fact that racism is one of them. i fear for my daughter and i hope for a better future for her. my heart breaks for George Floyd’s family and friends. Don’t let his name be forgotten. keep sharing, keep watching, keep speaking out, because it’s the only way we can come together to help bring this much needed change and awareness. Rest In Peace, George Floyd. 🕊🤍

Halsey y su ex Yungblud salieron a las calles de Los Ángeles para protestar 

Otros hechos durante la protesta:

  • John Cusack dice que la policía lo atacó con macanas durante la protesta de George Floyd.
  • La estrella de YouTube Jake Paul fue vista entre saqueadores en un centro comercial de Arizona.
  • El actor Kendrick Sampson fue golpeado por balas de goma de los policías mientras protestaba por la muerte de George Floyd.

Policías de California también se han unido con los protestantes

Chrissy Teigen y otros famosos han ayudado a los manifestantes por muerte de George Floyd, pagando sus fianzas:


Las protestas empezaron de forma pacífica, pero al ver la nula respuesta del gobierno, comenzaron a crear caos. Esto ha llevado a que algunos de los manifestantes sean arrestados, por lo algunas celebridades como Chrissy Teigen, Seth Rogen, Steve Carell, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monáe, entre otros, hayan empezado a hacer donaciones para que esas personas pueden salir de la cárcel.

Sin duda, estamos viviendo un momento histórico. Y las redes sociales han funcionado como un gran canal de difusión para esto. Muchas ciudades han estado en protesta y aunque en algunos lugares los policías están siendo más rígidos, en otros lugares se han unido con los protestantes como signo de unión y apoyo.
