Beyoncé has joined her voice with thousands of others including celebrities to call for justice for the death of George Floyd, a black man who died during a fatal Police arrest at the hands of former police officer Derek Chauvin.
Beyonce took to her Instagram page on Friday night (May 20) to share a personal video message of her demanding justice for Floyd’s death.
She could be heard saying;
“No more senseless killings of human beings. No more seeing people of color as less than human. We can no longer look away. George is all of our family in humanity. He’s our family because he’s a fellow American.”
“We need justice for George Floyd. We all witnessed his murder in broad daylight. We’re broken and we’re disgusted. We cannot normalize this pain,” Beyoncé said in the minute-long clip.
“I’m not only speaking to people of color. If you’re white, Black, brown or anything in between, I’m sure you feel hopeless by the racism going on in America right now.”
“There have been too many times that we’ve seen these violent killings and no consequences,” she said. “Yes someone’s been charged, but justice is far from being achieved.”
“Please sign the petition and continue to pray for peace and compassion and healing for our country,” she concluded.
