LOS ANGELES (united States).- The singer Beyonce, 38 years, is one of the many celebrities raise their voice in the wake of the death of George Floyd. The Grammy winner, who has remained fairly quiet on the social networks this year, spoke of his death in an exciting new video posted on his Instagram on Saturday, may 30. “We need justice for him,” he began.
“We were all witnesses of his assassination in the full light of day. We are all broken and upset. We cannot normalize this pain. I am not just talking about people of color. If you are white, black, brown, or something in between, I am sure that you feel desperate for the racism that is happening in the united States at this time,” he said. Then, he continued explaining in a tone of outrage. No make-up and increased production, only by its imposing message.
The clip of the pop star said: “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 our whole family of mankind. It is family because it’s an american partner. There have been too many times we have seen these murders and violent without consequences. Yes, someone has been accused but the justice is far from achieved,” he said.
Derek Chauvin, the former police officer who knelt on the neck of Floyd for almost ten minutes before being declared dead, has been charged with murder and involuntary manslaughter in the third degree for the incident. The situation has led to several protests. Some of them peaceful, while others have become absolutely chaotic in the days after his death. Looting, fires, and struggles of civilians against police officers are part of the consequences.
As expected, the social networks have lit up about the death of George with many pronouncements. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, LeBron James, Cardi B, among many other stars, have issued similar words to that Beyonce did this day. “Oh, enough is enough!!! What will it take for a civil war? What a new president?”, tweeted the singer of “Bodak Yellow” with frustration.
