ABTV: Justice for George Floyd
African-Americans have been racially profiled, killed senselessly, preyed upon and chastised in the U.S for decades. Many African-Americans have lost their lives to police brutality and racism. The unjust killing of George Floyd, Ahmad Arbery, and many others have sparked rage from African-Americans who are tired of the injustices that occur in America’s justice system.
Former Minneapolis officer, Derek Chauvin, kneeled on George Floyd’s neck for eight minutes on Monday. The police were called when an employee at CupFoods said he suspected Floyd of trying to make a purchase with a counterfeit $20 bill. The employee called the police because he said it is store protocol in that situation. Chauvin and the other three officers arrived at the scene and failed to investigate the authenticity of the bill, because they were focused on pinning Floyd to the ground and suffocating him.
Here’s what some of your favorite celebrities have been posting in support of justice for George Floyd:
Jessie J posted a short clip from Jane Elliott’s speech about white privilege, and the inequalities African-Americans face on a daily basis. Elliott is known for the experiment she conducted as a school teacher in 1968 to teach white children about their privileges, as well as illustrate the unfair treatment African-Americans experience every day in America due to the color of their skin.
Resse Witherspoon posted a picture promoting the discussion of racism within the U.S. In the caption, she discussed the conversation she had with her 7-year-old son about race and racism that has surrounded the U.S for centuries.
“We have to be held accountable for what is happening in this country. What happened to George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery – and countless others – can not go without justice. Please talk to your children about racism, privilege, bigotry and hate. If you aren’t talking to them, someone else is.” Witherspoon,” wrote.
