Οι σταρ ζητούν δικαιοσύνη για τον άδικο θάνατο του George Floyd

Οι celebrities χρησιμοποιούν τη φωνή τους μέσα από τα social media, και εναντιώνονται δημόσια στον πρόεδρο των ΗΠΑ Donald Trump, κατηγορώντας τον πως ρίχνει λάδι στη φωτιά και απαιτώντας να πάψει ο ρατσισμός.

«Δεν μπορώ να αναπνεύσω» ήταν οι τελευταίες λέξεις που είπε ο Αφροαμερικανός 46χρονος George Floyd που έχασε τη ζωή του άδικα από ένα αστυνομικό. Ο θάνατός του ξεσήκωσε φυσικά αντιδράσεις σε όλο τον πλανήτη και παγκόσμιες κινητοποιήσεις για να σταματήσει επιτέλους η αστυνομική βία. Οι σταρ φυσικά και δεν έμειναν αμέτοχοι. Μέσα από τα προφίλ τους στα social media απαιτούν και αυτοί δικαιοσύνη, για τον άδικο χαμό του George Floyd και ανοίγουν ξανά το φλέγον ζήτημα του βαθιά ριζωμένου ρατσισμού.

«Το μέγεθος της κατσστροφής, της οργής και της θλίψης που ένιωσα ήταν συντριπτικό».

For the last few days, the magnitude of devastation, anger, sadness I’ve felt has been overwhelming to say the least! 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???! #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery #BreonnaTaylor

keep supporting our brothers and sisters out there risking everything to push for actual change for our black lives. Urging everyone with big pockets to give and give big and if you have less please give what you can even if it's a small amount. #blacklivesmatter (links in story)

Michelle Obama

Ένα πορτραίτο του George Floyd ανέβασε με την σειρά της η πρώην Πρώτη Κυρία των ΗΠΑ, μιλώντας για τους Αφροαμερικανούς πολίτες που έχουν χάσει τη ζωή τους από την αστυνομική βία.

Like so many of you, I’m pained by these recent tragedies. And I’m exhausted by a heartbreak that never seems to stop. Right now it’s George, Breonna, and Ahmaud. Before that it was Eric, Sandra, and Michael. It just goes on, and on, and on. Race and racism is a reality that so many of us grow up learning to just deal with. But if we ever hope to move past it, it can’t just be on people of color to deal with it. It’s up to all of us—Black, white, everyone—no matter how well-meaning we think we might be, to do the honest, uncomfortable work of rooting it out. It starts with self-examination and listening to those whose lives are different from our own. It ends with justice, compassion, and empathy that manifests in our lives and on our streets. I pray we all have the strength for that journey, just as I pray for the souls and the families of those who were taken from us. Artwork: @nikkolas_smith

I want to share parts of the conversations I’ve had with friends over the past couple days about the footage of George Floyd dying face down on the street under the knee of a police officer in Minnesota.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ The first is an email from a middle-aged African American businessman.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ “Dude I gotta tell you the George Floyd incident in Minnesota hurt. I cried when I saw that video. It broke me down. The ‘knee on the neck’ is a metaphor for how the system so cavalierly holds black folks down, ignoring the cries for help. People don’t care. Truly tragic.”⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Another friend of mine used the powerful song that went viral from 12-year-old Keedron Bryant to describe the frustrations he was feeling.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ The circumstances of my friend and Keedron may be different, but their anguish is the same. It’s shared by me and millions of others.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ It’s natural to wish for life “to just get back to normal” as a pandemic and economic crisis upend everything around us. But we have to remember that for millions of Americans, being treated differently on account of race is tragically, painfully, maddeningly “normal” – whether it’s while dealing with the health care system, or interacting with the criminal justice system, or jogging down the street, or just watching birds in a park.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ This shouldn’t be “normal” in 2020 America. It can’t be “normal.” If we want our children to grow up in a nation that lives up to its highest ideals, we can and must be better.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ It will fall mainly on the officials of Minnesota to ensure that the circumstances surrounding George Floyd’s death are investigated thoroughly and that justice is ultimately done. But it falls on all of us, regardless of our race or station – including the majority of men and women in law enforcement who take pride in doing their tough job the right way, every day – to work together to create a “new normal” in which the legacy of bigotry and unequal treatment no longer infects our institutions or our hearts.

«Δεν μπορούμε να φανταστούμε αυτό το συναίσθημα φόβου και οργής. Ντρεπόμαστε που στο παρελθόν επιστρέψαμε στους εαυτούς μας να μείνουμε ανενημέρωτοι για το πόσο βαθιά ριζωμένος είναι ο ρατσισμός», έγραψε η ηθοποιός.
