After the tragic death of George Floyd, many celebrities are coming forward to protest against this police brutality and systemic racism. The voices of the people of color in America will not be silenced and these protests are a sign of that. Among the many celebrities that have come forward to help in this fight against racism, Kayne West requires a special mention. Kayne West has recently donated 2 million dollars as a support for the family of George Floyd. This money has been allocated to not only support George Floyd’s family but also to support the family of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, the two other victims of systemic racism. The donation by Kayne West will include the legal fees for Taylor and Arbery’s families and also, a portion of it will try to help the businesses owned by black people in Chicago and other countries. During this period, they need all the help they can get.
A representative of Kayne West has mentioned that around a 529 education plan has been implemented that will take care of the college fees of Gianna Floyd, the daughter of George Floyd, who’s just 6 years of age. The death of Floyd and the deaths of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, has spread across the world and many people from different countries are taking part in the protests against racism. It is during this time that the donation of Kayne West came and blessed the community as a whole. Along with him, many celebrities are voicing their strong disapproval of the existing systemic racism in the country, the brutality of the police, and the lack of any leadership from the higher echelon of the United States political sphere. The three Minneapolis officers who have arrested in charge of the death of George Floyd is going to make their first appearance in court on Thursday. Floyd’s family will also hold the first planned memorial that day as well.
The chief assailant, Derek Chauvin, who had pinned down George Floyd on the ground and held his neck under his knee for nine minutes, have been arrested the previous week. He has been charged with 3rd-degree murder and 2nd-degree manslaughter. However, this Wednesday, the prosecution has shifted the murder degree and made it to a much more serious second-degree murder.
On February 23rd, a black man, Ahmaud Arbery, was also shot as he was jogging near Brunswick, GA. The white men accused of his death were arrested.
An EMT, Breonna Taylor, was shot down at least 8 times in March. This took place when 3 officers barged into her apartment at Kentucky and shot her down. The FBI is looking into the case.
Such systemic violence against a race is depressing to see at this age. But thankfully, more and more celebrities like Kayne West are coming out to show their support and bring the people to rally behind them for this good cause!
