What is the Blackout Tuesday with images black on social networks


If they started the day watching dozens of boxes of black people in their social networks, it is because celebrities, record labels, businesses, and sportsmen of the world promised not to publish in their accounts for anything other than that dark image that represents the feeling of many people against police abuse and racism in the united States.

In accordance with Telegraph“the idea is to fill Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with black squares, freeing up the time usually devoted to social networks for people to educate themselves about the movement of ‘Black Lives Matter’ (the lives of black matter)”.

Danielle Arciniegas, Juanes, Carolina Cruz, ‘Tatán’ Mejia, Tuti Vargas, J Balvin, Natalia Durán, Mara Cifuentes, Laura Tobón, Luis Carlos Velez, Majida Issa, Naty Botero, Taliana Vargas, Juliana Velasquez, Catherine Siachoque, Isabel Cristina Estrada, ‘Pautips’, Valerie Domínguez and Natalia Ramirez are just a few of the colombians who put the black box in his latest posting on Instagram.

On the side international names such as Antonella Roccuzzo, Norman Capuozzo, Evaluna, the current Miss Universe Zozibini TunziMiguel Herrán, Christian Meier, Aislinn Derbez, Christian Chavez, Marc Anthony, Chris Hemsworth, Salma Hayek, Kaley Cuoco, Rihanna, Hugh Jackman, Luke Evans, Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Dua Lipa, Christina Aguilera, and dozens more seeking justice for the death of George Floyd and an end to racism.


Many of these celebrities like Rihanna, and others such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Taylor Swift, Cardi B, Billie Eilish and Killer Mike, have manifested themselves since before this day their anger and solidarity with the victim, while the actor Jamie Foxx and pop superstar Ariana Grande joined in person to the demonstrations.

“Over the past few 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 he brought me to a dark place of my heart!”, said Rihanna outraged in his account of the network Instagram.

For the last few days, the magnitude of devastation, anger, sadness I’ve felt has been overwhelming to say the least! Watching my people get murdered and lynched day after day pushed me to a heavy place in my heart! To the point of staying away from socials, just to avoid hearing the blood curdling agony in George Floyd”s voice again, begging over and over for his life!!! The look of enticement, the pure joy and climax on the face of this bigot, murderer, thug, pig, bum, Derek Chauvin, haunts me!! I can’t shake this! I can’t get over an ambulance pulling up to an arrest, a paramedic checking a press without removing the very thing that’s hindering it! Is this that fucking normal??? If intentional MURDER is the fit consequence for “drugs” or “resisting arrest,”….then what’s the fit consequence for MURDER???! #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor

“We were all witnesses of his assassination in the full light of day… we’re sad and we’re upset. We cannot normalize this pain,” said for his part the singer black Beyonce in a video, and urged to sign a petition demanding #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd, the platform Change.org said that it became the biggest in its history.

The magnate and the husband of the superstar, Jay-Z, told through his company Roc Nation that he had spoken with the governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, and welcomed the appointment of the attorney general of the state, Keith Ellison, to conduct a trial in the case of Floyd.

“I’m a human being, a father and a black man with pain…I’m more determined to fight for justice that any fight that they can undertake those seeking to oprimirme,” said the rapper.

“I call on all politicians, prosecutors and officials in the country to have the courage to do the right thing. Have the courage to look at ourselves as humans, parents, brothers, sisters, and mothers with pain and look at yourselves”, he stressed.

The protests for the murder of George Floyd have stopped looting, injured and even killed in different cities in the united States that they have nearly a week of demonstrations.

This Monday it was confirmed that the Floyd “was a homicide caused by asphyxiation due to compression of the neck and back that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain,” generated by the police officer Derek Chauvin and two other uniformed aggressors. The first, which coincidentally worked in the same nightclub in which she was the victim a while ago, has been arrested and is accused by the office of the Hennepin county attorney murder and involuntary manslaughter.
