The Grammy-winning artist is one of many celebrities who use their social media platforms to demand change in the wake of Floyd’s death in Minneapolis last week.
“We have been broken and disgusted,” she says in a video posted to Instagram. “We cannot normalize this pain. I am not just talking to people of color. If you are black and white and brown and anything in between, I am sure you feel despair because of the racism that is happening in America now.”
In the video, Beyonce continued, “No more unjustified killing of human beings. No more seeing people of color less than humans. We can no longer look away. George is our whole family and human. He is our family because he is an American citizen.”
She said: “We have seen many times these violent killings and there have been no consequences.” “Yes, someone was charged, but justice has not yet been done.”
“They continued to pray for peace, mercy and healing for our country,” she said.
