The world is convulsed, and not only because of the pandemic of the coronavirus, but by the outrage that was triggered following the assassination, at the hands of the police, of George Floyd. His death, one more example of the police brutality perpetrated on the black community, has resulted in tens of demonstrations throughout the world, although the united States is experiencing the worst part. Artists such as Halsey, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande or Harry Styles they are paying the bail bonds of the detainees as a show of support.
In this struggle there are two sides differentiated: the racist and anti-racist. That is why anonymous and celebrities have joined in a single cry for justice by the death of George Floyd and demanding that Donald Trump responsibilities.
Logically, those who more followers they have on networks represent a speaker for the cause. That’s why, that big names of the music and with so much influence on young people such as Katy Perry, Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber or Halsey are participating in favor of racial equality has a lot of weight.
The movement of Black Lives Matters it has spread around the world and there are several cities that are home to concentrations and protests to demand justice for Floyd, who died under the pressure of the knee of a police officer being restrained while he pleaded: “please, I can not breathe”.
There are those who have taken an active part in the marches as Paris Jackson or those who have lived moments of tension in the protests as Halsey, who was hit by rubber bullets fired by security agents.
Others, such as those mentioned above, are giving their support to the cause by donating money to pay the bail of the people that are being detained by participating in these rallies to demand justice in order to eradicate the racist acts as the role.
“Every day I do things without fear that I am privileged, and I am privileged every day because I am white. Not to be racist is not enough, we need to be anti-racist. Social change is promoted when a society is mobilized. I sympathize with all those who are protesting,” writes Harry Styles in a publication that promotes the project in which you are participating.
