AfterBuzz TV: the Roc Knows Black Lives Matter
Dwayne Johnson, along with many others, are continuing to fight for the equality of black lives everywhere.
On Wednesday, he posted a video over 8 minutes long on Instagram that starts off with a simple question, “where are you?”
Although the 48-year-old never mentions a name, it’s assumed that Johnson is talking about President Donald Trump.
“Where are you? Where is our leader? Where is our leader at this time when our country is down on its knees, begging, pleading, hurt, angry, frustrated, in pain with its arms out, just wanting to be heard?” Asks Johnson.
Many protests around the world have taken off after a man named George Floyd was killed due to police brutality,
Along with curfews put in place, the military was deployed as people chanted for change.
“There is military force that has been deployed on our own people. Looters yes, criminals absolutely, but our protestors who are begging and pleading? Our protestors who are crying out in pain? You know you would be surprised how people in pain would respond when you say to them I care about you.”
This hasn’t been the first time the actor has talked about the Black Lives Matter movement.
He wrote a lengthy post on Instagram explaining his feelings since George Floyd’s death, and how he’s been affected by the situation.
Now, The Jumanji star has his own call to action for the many people fighting for a change and fighting for what is right; and that’s to step up and become a leader yourself.
“As we continue to wait for that leader to emerge I would recommend to all of you that we must become the leaders we’re looking for. We become our own leaders, because we’re doing it now. We must become the leaders we are looking for.” Said Johnson
