Thousands of people in major US cities have taken to the streets to protest police brutality and racial injustice in America, and celebrities and public figures have followed suit. This comes after the tragic death of George Floyd, who passed away in the hands of Minneapolis police officers.


Racial injustice and police brutality are issues faced by the Black community for centuries. Now that yet another senseless killing happened, thousands of people are crying out for justice, and that includes celebrities like Jamie Foxx, J. Cole, Nick Cannon, who have taken to the streets to express their outrage.

For some public figures, social media is no longer enough to protest what has been happening in America. After the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many more, celebrities believe it's important for them to take a stand and join the hundreds of thousands rallying on the streets.

Singer Tinashe asked people to "show up," leading by example as she protested alongside hundreds of others in a crowd that occupied a main road. In a powerful picture, she stood in the middle of the road with a poster that read "Black Lives Matter," as cars begin to rush towards her.


Aside from protesting on a main road, she also joined protesters on a march as she still continued to carry the same signage board. Tinashe is one of the many who have decided to go out of their homes to make their voices heard, and it's an admirable gesture that those who marched with her appreciated.



Porsha Williams of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" left her child at home for a moment to protest with hundreds of others in a march that asked police officers to stop killing members of the Black community. The reality TV star appeared on live television explaining why she decided to stand up against police brutality.

A proud fan shared the clip on Twitter, applauding Williams for her bravery and for her courage to step out of her comfort zone. Fans commended her growth, and couldn't help but express how proud they are of her.



Rap fans have always looked up to J Cole for his powerful lyrics, but he stepped it up a notch by rallying in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The rapper was seen in the midst of a crowd, as they all stood together to demand justice for the death of George Floyd.

The protest was organized by Rakeem Jones, a man who once made headlines for being punched at a political rally. Aside from J. Cole, Fayetteville Mayor Mitch Colvin made sure to join in as well.



Nick Cannon wrote a lengthy statement about how racism continues to be a pressing issue in America today. Despite the injustices faced by the Black community, it is still ongoing and Cannon believes enough is enough.

He recalls how racism was alive during the 1600s, and how it continues to be alive today. Now, he calls for reforms on how to end racism once and for all, something that should have been done long ago.



Jamie Foxx stepped out and delivered a speech during a protest held in his city, standing alongside brave men and women who have stepped up to demand justice for George Floyd and all other victims of racial injustice and police brutality.

"If you're a black celebrity and you don't sound like this, we don't wanna [hear] from you. Not now. Not ever. Thank you, Jamie Foxx, for speaking up in defense of people who are frustrated, hurting, and tired."

Millions of people in the US, including public figures from all sectors, await a response from the national government as to how the issue of racial injustice and police brutality can stop once and for all. For now, protests and demonstrations continue to happen in hopes of their voices being heard.
