Floyd, an unarmed nigger, died in police custody after ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was strangled for almost nine minutes during his arrest. His death started demonstrations in the United States and around the world.
The Grammy award-winning artist shared a touching message on Instagram on Wednesday, containing aerial photographs of thousands of Black Lives Matter demonstrators filling the streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The words that accompany the picture are: “The world came together for George Floyd. We know that there is a long way ahead. Let’s align and focus in our call for true justice.”
After Floyd’s death, Beyoncé expressed his pain and anger on Instagram, urging his fans to act and refuse to “normalize the pain.”
“We’re broken and disgusted,” he said in a hot video on his Instagram page. “We can’t normalize this pain. I’m not just talking to colorful people. If you’re white, black, brown, and anything in between, I’m sure you’re feeling hopeless about racism right now in America.”
“Formation” hitmaker said “many times more than we have seen these violent murders and failed.”
“Yes, someone was accused, but it is far from reaching justice.”
He concluded the message by calling his followers to sign several petitions: “Keep praying for peace and kindness and healing for our country”.
