Share

In the wake of the George Floyd murder, more light has been shone on the deep-rooted issue that is Systemic Racism in America. While police brutality and police killings are major problems, it is now very clear that the bigger issue with the unjustified killing of not just George Floyd but a large number of African-Americans before him is racism. Systemic Racism.

As millions, both black and white, go out on the streets to protest this latest act of injustice––even risking their health during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic––many celebrities have taken to social media to speak out against police brutality and systemic racism at large.

“The only wrong thing to say is to say nothing.”

One of the latest celebrities to add her voice to what has become a global conversation is the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. Explaining why it is important to speak up against injustice, Meghan Markle says “the only wrong thing to say is to say nothing.”

From Breonna Taylor to Ahmaud Arbery, systemic racism, also known as institutional racism, appears to be the major reason white people approach confrontations with black people with a prejudice that doesn’t allow them to think rationally in the presence of a fire arm.
