Since he has had use of reason, the British actress Emma Watson has expressed to the world his philanthropy, and his advocacy for the equality of all human beings. The interpreter of Hermione Grange, in the famous saga of the magician “Harry Potter“, has shown of his personality is devoted to being a feminist, progressive, globalist, and anti-racist. It is for this reason that we remind you of this event of the year 2018, where it showed a reflection that traveled the world.
Watson has publicly admitted that it possesses a “white privilege“ with all what this could mean for a star elite of Hollywood. And it is for this reason that he decided to meditate on the way “he defends a system that is structurally racist“. His thinking became so profound that he ensured that recognize this attention is a process that never ends, and for which the only logical solution is suicide.

Last week, to make it easy for others to access the many useful resources out there, I started a @Spotify playlist of podcasts, writing, analysis and discussion that have helped me understand systemic racism, white supremacy and the experiences of black people, indigenous people and people of colour. The first on the playlist is an interview with @renieddolodge about her book 'Why I am no longer talking to white people about race' which was featured on my book club @OurSharedShelf. The second is a reading of the "Histories" chapter of her book. I’ve narrated this one myself because it knocked the wind out of me when I first read it. It contained so much history I had never been taught in school. I hope another generation of children don't have to grow up without understanding the historical context for contemporary racism. You can find my playlist Our Shared Podcast on Spotify and I hope you'll find the collection thought-provoking. The link to the playlist is in my bio. Thank you so much to people who have shared recommendations for this list, and to everyone who has worked so hard over the past 10 days to get this up and running, especially @renieddolodge, @bloomsburypublishing, @Audible, @Spotify, @anchor.fm and my whole team. . #blacklivesmatter #blackliberation #saytheirname #sayhername #sayhisname #racialjustice #blmmovement #blackauthors
The Emma Watson in the past is the same today
It should be noted that Emma Watson appeared as a feminist form in the year 2015, an action that sparked strong criticism from black feminists by tildarla as a “feminist white privileged”. And this was the reason for everything else. It seems that the British actress fell in panic after an understanding that all this that assured the other activists were not so far-fetched and was part of his inescapable reality.

One thing we can all do to honour the struggle for racial justice in the US is to interrogate, understand and dismantle the racist structures of our own countries. The UK is the country I was brought up in, the country that I vote in and a country whose own history of systemic racism has shaped those elsewhere – American and British histories of racial oppression are very much intertwined. But it wasn’t until I became a student in an American university and was taught British history from an outsider’s perspective that I really started to understand the racial violence that scars British history. As a child I grew up with a school curriculum that totally glossed over British colonialism and British slavery. And any teaching around black civil rights movements were focussed on the American experience – as @renieddolodge points out in her book, Black History Month in the UK often ends up offering British children timelines of American activists. For me, understanding our past is a crucial part of understanding the injustices and inequalities of our present and remaking our future as a nation. Our school education system is key – the stories the national curriculum tells us about who we are, and the voices it centres, create a blueprint for how we interpret and interact with the world around us. As an adult, I’ve benefited from the work of people like @renieddolodge, David Olusoga, @johnymodern, @afuahirsch @akalamusic, Paul Gilroy, Stuart Hall and many others to help me understand my country’s history. But this learning needs to start much, much earlier if we are to dismantle deep-rooted systems of oppression and injustice. Thank you to all the historians, teachers, activists and students who are paving the way for a truly anti-racist education system. First image by @rmraffinity, The True Crown.

After learning about the case of George Floyd, the African American man who was killed by a police American, the young star has been strongly shaken. To raise the voice of all those people who has a real story to tell, Watson took an initiative. Use your Instagram in order to standardize all the information of interest in this case and on many others, fallen in battles for the work of the racism in your country and in the rest of the world.
With over 57 million followers on the platform of the snapshot, Emma Watson has already achieved to publish more than thirteen postings, loaded with information, anecdotes, art, and raw realities that they have not had the joy of being so famous as the case of George. Like Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and some other young celebrities of the entertainment industry; Watson has committed to this and many other causes.
