If you are white, black, brown and something in between, I am sure that you feel desperate for the racism that is happening in the united States at this time. No more senseless killings of human beings. No more to see people of color as less than human. We can no longer look the other way. George is all of our family and humanity. He is our family because it is a fellow american,” said the singer in the clip.

Billie Eilish he asked his fans to recognize their privileges through a posting on Instagram.
“If I hear another white person say “All lives matter” a p*** and more I I’m going to go crazy. Can you shut up for a p*** time? No one is saying that your life does not matter. No one is saying that your life is not hard. No one is saying literally nothing at all about you… All that you do is to find a way of turning this on you. This is not about you. Stop back around on you. They are not in trouble. They are not in danger,” wrote the young singer.

Kim Kardashian through its account of Instagram expressed his feeling on the case of George Floyd and mentioned the distress that has to see moms, dads, or brothers or sisters of losing a loved one because of racism.
“Over the years, with each gruesome murder of an innocent man, woman or child black, I always tried to find the right words to express my condolences and outrage, but the privilege that affords me the color of my skin is often gone. I feel that this is not a fight that I can really take it as mine. Not today, not anymore. Like many of you, I am angry. I am more than angry. I am enraged and disgusted. I’m exhausted by the anguish I feel when I see mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and children who suffer because their loved one was murdered or locked up unfairly for being black”, he wrote in his account of Instagram.

Rihanna it is one of the singers who has been fighting for racism, and in his account of Instagram expressed his feeling to avoid a murder more.
“In the last days, the magnitude of the devastation, the anger and the sadness I have felt has been overwhelming to say the least! I see my people being killed and linchada day after day pushed me to a place heavy on my heart! Up to the point of staying away from social networks, just to avoid hearing again the agony of the blood in the voice of George Floyd, begging again and again for his life! The look of temptation, the sheer joy and climax on the face of this fanatic, murderer, thug, pig, tramp, Derek Chauvin, haunts me! I can not shake this! I can’t beat an ambulance to a halt, a paramedic checking for a pulse without deleting what is hindering! What is this f – king normal? If the intentional killing is the consequence proper for ‘drugs’ or ‘resisting arrest’ … what, then, is the consequence appropriate for the murder?”, wrote the singer.
