Following the murders of two innocent black men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile (done by police officers) in two different parts of America, many people are speaking out to the world to spread the message.
That is, THIS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO ANYONE, REGARDLESS OF RACE, GENDER, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, RELIGION, ETC.
One of these people.. Queen Bee herself.
Beyonce took to her website today to write an open letter to speak on these issues going on in our world, and ultimately needs to be stopped.
As we know from the Superbowl, Beyonce is very passionate and involved when it comes to the issues revolving around Black Lives Matter.
In the letter she begins with, “We are sick and tired of the killings of young men and women in our communities.”
Beyonce is doing what all celebrities should be doing, using her name to spread this message.
She continues on saying,
“We’re going to stand up as a community and fight against anyone who believes that murder or any violence action by those who are sworn to protect us should go consistently go unpunished.”
The 34-year-old singer continually emphasises that WE ALL need to stand up and speak out, not just those in the African American community.
“Fear is not an excuse. Hate will not win.”
Read the full letter right here, it is short but speaks to what we all need to hear.
What do you think about the letter? What else needs to be done by people in power to make change?
