Η αμερικανική showbiz μάχεται ενάντια στον ρατσισμό

Ο τραγικός χαμός του George Floyd “πυροδότησε” ένα δυνατό κίνημα αντίδρασης.

Η 25η Μαΐου 2020 αποτελεί μία ακόμα “μαύρη” σελίδα στην αμερικανική αλλά και παγκόσμια ιστορία, αφού η τραγική δολοφονία του Αφροαμερικανού George Floyd από αστυνομικό στη Μινεάπολη των ΗΠΑ, επιβεβαιώνει ότι ο ρατσισμός εξακολουθεί να επιβιώνει, αμαυρώνοντας τη σύγχρονη πραγματικότητα.

 

Κομμάτι της παγκόσμιας κατακραυγής για αυτό το τόσο τραγικό γεγονός αποτελούν και οι celebrities, οι οποίοι μέσα από τα social media δίνουν το δικό τους μήνυμα ενάντια στον ρατσισμό, ανάμεσά τους η Rihanna, η Beyoncé, ο Justin Bieber, η Kim Kardashian και πολλά ακόμα διάσημα ονόματα της αμερικανικής showbiz.

 

Oι αναρτήσεις τους είναι συναισθηματικά φορτισμένες και αποσκοπούν στο να μεταφέρουν παγκοσμίως τη δική τους “φωνή” ενάντια στην αδικία και την κατάχρηση οποιασδήποτε μορφής εξουσίας.

 

 

Ας δούμε μερικές από τις αναρτήσεις τους:

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

It’s heartbreaking that we’re honoring yet another life that was lost due to the violence and racism our country displays far too often. To say that racism is alive today would be a gross understatement, and to say that white privilege doesn’t exist is ignorance at its finest. We live in a country that denies the same freedom and rights to someone based on the color of their skin… black men, women and children are being MURDERED because of the color of their skin while white men, women and children majority of the time receive a slap on the wrist at best. I am tired, I’m angry, I’m sad, and I will not stay quiet. Changes need to be made, and people need to be behind bars for their actions.. Rest In Peace George Floyd.

Last night at dinner, my 7-year-old asked why all the grown ups were so upset. We spoke to him about what happened to George Floyd. Being a white mother trying to explain racism and bigotry to her white son, who did not understand why anyone would treat another human being that way, was heartbreaking. But not nearly as heartbreaking as being a victim of one of these senseless, violent, unconscionable crimes. Not nearly as heartbreaking as being one of the families who have experienced loss and harassment and discrimination daily. Not nearly as heartbreaking as being a mother who lives in fear of what will happen to her children in this world. I grew up going to church. We were taught that we were all the same in the eyes of God. We all breathe the same air. We all bleed the same blood. But that is not what I grew up seeing. It was as hard for me to reconcile the difference between what I was taught in church and what I see in the world. I don’t want that for my kids. Or for yours. We have to be held accountable for what is happening in this country. What happened to George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery – and countless others – can not go without justice. Please talk to your children about racism, privilege, bigotry and hate. If you aren’t talking to them, someone else is. Regarding comments: I urge you to share this space for meaningful discussion, not hate. There is enough hate in the world. I hope this can be a space for discussion, understanding, growth and LOVE. We all need more of that.

Οι πρωτοβουλίες και οι προσπάθειες για οποιαδήποτε κοινωνική αλλαγή συνεχίζονται από την πλευρά τους , με τις αναρτήσεις να πολλαπλασιάζονται και να προστίθενται ολοένα και περισσότερες διάσημες “φωνές” …
