It's been months since the world lost an incredible icon, Kobe Bryant. He died earlier this year with his teenage daughter, Gianna Bryant, in a helicopter crash.

Vanessa recently posted a snap of her man to honor him, but also, the post was directed to pass a message across to the world.

Amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, African-Americans are undergoing police brutality, and many have cried out for help through protests.

Vanessa is using her social media page to promote the necessity of harmonious living among all races. She wrote:

"My husband wore this shirt years ago, and yet here we are again.?#ICANTBREATHE... Life is so fragile...#BLACKLIVESMATTER."

She urged her fans to commit to teaching and learning love at home and school. Over ten thousand fans commented on the post, and while most of her followers understood and could relate to the message, others expressed their grieving heart and condolences for her loss.

Vanessa's message comes after the death of George Floyd, an African-American who died after being a police in Minneapolis kneeled on his neck.

Chrissy Teigen, Steve Carell, and Seth Rogen donated money to bail out imprisoned protesters.

Many protesters took to the streets to air their opinions, but some broke into stores and turned the protest into an opportunity to loot.

The former NBA star's widow hasn't kept quiet on the issue either. While she condemns the inequality experienced by African Americans, she is unrelenting in her advocacy for love and compassion.

In another post, she shared an image that had a heart, house, and a globe emoji with few words in front of each. It read:

"UNTIL YOU FIX IT HERE, AND ADDRESS IT HERE, NOTHING CHANGES HERE."

Other celebrities have managed to join in the request for an improved police system and better treatment for African Americans, especially since George's death isn't the first.

While Ariana Grande and Halsey have been physically present in protests, Chrissy Teigen, Steve Carell, and Seth Rogen donated money to bail out imprisoned protesters.
