Rihanna is among a host of fellow superstars like Drake, Beyoncé, & Ice Cube who are condemning the rampant police brutality that plagues the African American community in the United States.
“For the last few days, the magnitude of devastation, anger, sadness I’ve felt has been overwhelming to say the least!” she stated to her Instagram followers. “Watching my people get murdered and lynched day after day pushed me to a heavy place in my heart! To the point of staying away from socials, just to avoid hearing the blood curdling agony in George Floyd’s voice again, begging over and over for his life!!! The look of enticement, the pure joy and climax on the face of this bigot, murderer, thug, pig, bum, Derek Chauvin, haunts me!! I can’t shake this! I can’t get over an ambulance pulling up to an arrest, a paramedic checking a pulse without removing the very thing that’s hindering it! Is this that fucking normal??? If intentional MURDER is the fit consequence for “drugs” or “resisting arrest”….then what’s the fit consequence for MURDER???!"
She ended the post with the hashtags #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery and #BreonnaTaylor. However we all know that this isn't just about three horrific deaths. The systematic unfair and brutal treatment, from top to bottom, of African Americans in this country by the justice system as a while needs to gutted and the people are tired of waiting around for the voting to make a change.
