According to the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" star, she feels so much despair every time she hears of yet another case of murder and another mother, woman, or child killed. Ali took her time in speaking, clearly still trying to grasp the reality that is currently happening.

Aside from victims of police brutality, she mentions refugees, those seeking asylum, and children who were killed in the middle of conflicts. While these were disregarded and set aside quietly, Ali says the death of George Floyd should no longer be a silent matter.

THE RIGHT TO PROTEST

She goes on to say that three of the officers involved in the George Floyd incident have yet to be arrested, and one of them is currently being protected. To Ali, there's no right way for protests, and doing so in the way that you can is valid.

"It would be insanity, and we would be living in a hell if things weren't burning right now. To me, the fact that people are out there, risking everything, is a sign of hope."

THANKING THE PROTESTORS

She finished her speech by thanking all those who have taken to the streets to stand up for the Black community. She went on to let them know that her thoughts and prayers are with them and that she is grateful that people are finally doing what's right.

"Protect each other. Keep using your heads. I believe in you, and I'm in a household of people who believe in you. These people still aren't arrested. They still aren't arrested. That's evidence enough that what you're doing is right."

George Floyd's death sparked a nationwide uprising against racial injustice and police actions. Celebrities, public figures, and people from different sectors and walks of life have taken to the streets to ask for law reforms among many others.
