Kobe and his teenage daughter Gianna Bryant died in January after a fatal helicopter crash that claimed the lives of seven others.

Recently, many took to the streets of Los Angeles to protest against the severe injustice of law enforcement officers on the African-American race, especially after the death of George Floyd.

Vanessa shared images of her deceased husband and daughter's murals across the city that remained saved amid the looting and vandalism associated with the protest.

One eye-catching post was a picture of her husband's mural still intact on the other side of a burning building that had been set ablaze by protesters. Bryant wrote on the shared image:

"Mural of Kobe and (Natalia) saved."

Several news outlets and online posts reported the respect shown to the Lakers champion and his family. Vanessa has joined in the call for a reformed system that will be fair to the African-Americans in the country.

Another celebrity to lend a voice to the cause is Celine Dion.

She shared a heart-melting message by featuring her husband's image in an "I CAN'T BREATHE" inscribed shirt, which was used to honor Eric Garner, an African-American who died from police brutality.

Following George's death in Minneapolis by some police officers last month, Vanessa urged every race to imbibe the love culture, as "life is fragile." She wrote:

"Spread LOVE. Fight for change- register to VOTE... BE AN EXAMPLE OF THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE. #BLACKLIVESMATTER."

Another celebrity to lend a voice to the cause is Celine Dion, who shared how heartbroken she is over the system's injustice.

Derek Chauvin, the white cop who kneeled on George's neck while attempting to arrest him, has been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

The verdicts of the three other cops who joined in the violent arrest of George Floyd is yet to be reported. However, all four men no longer serve in the police force, as they have been relieved of their duties.

Tyler Perry, a media mogul, has also been vocal about the situation in the country. He maintained that the killing was unjust, and he supports a change in the system.

However, Perry said that it should be a peaceful protest and explained that not all whites should be seen as racists.
