Former Armed Forces Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knees to his neck for nearly 9 minutes during his arrest, and an unarmed black Floyd was detained by the police. His death triggered demonstrations in the United States and around the world.
The Grammy-winning artist shared a poignant message on Wednesday’s Instagram. The photos are thousands of black life demonstrators flying in the streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Next to the picture reads: “The world is united for George Floyd. We know that there is still a long way to go. Let us be consistent and concentrate on the appeal of true justice.”
After Floyd died, Beyoncé expressed her pain and anger on Instagram, calling on her fans to take action and refusing to “normalize the pain”.
She said in a passionate video posted to her Instagram page: “We are sad, we are disgusted.” “We can’t normalize this pain. I’m not only talking to people of color. If you are white, black , Brown and anything in between, I’m sure that the racism that is happening in America now makes you feel desperate.”
The destiny of the “formation” continued, “We have seen these violent killings too many times, with no consequences.”
“Yes, someone has been charged, but justice is far from being realized.”
She ended this message by urging followers to sign several petitions, adding: “Continue to pray for our peace and compassion and recovery.”
