Diana Ross' Son Evan Joins Protests for Justice after George Floyd's Death
Evan Ross took it to the streets in protest of George Floyd's death, joining hundreds of others in their demand for justice.
For some celebrities, speaking up on social media is no longer enough when it comes to demanding for justice and change. Instead, joining rallies and protests like everyone else is something that they've decided to do.
The most recent to join the movement is Evan Ross, who posted a couple of pictures of himself while on the street. In one picture, he faces front with his fist up in the air, captioning it with "No Justice, No Peace."
GEORGE FLOYD'S DEATH
Protests have been happening all over America following the death of George Floyd, a Minneapolis local who lost his life after being accused of writing a bad check. At the time, a clerk called police in after he misjudged Floyd for not being able to pay for the items he was purchasing.
When the police came, they arrested Floyd and tackled him to the ground. An officer had a knee to his neck for several minutes, until he lost consciousness and died. Onlookers were able to film the incident, and it sparked massive outrage across the world.
A CALL FOR JUSTICE
Now, people are demanding an end to police brutality and racial injustice, which has been happening for centuries. On top of this, they are seeking justice for George Floyd's death, asking for those at fault to be put to prison.
The likes of Nick Cannon, Jamie Foxx, Halsey, Stephen Curry, and Michael B. Jordan have also taken to the streets to protest with thousands of others.
TRACEE ELLIS-ROSS' STATEMENT
Like Evan, his sister Tracee Ellis Ross has also spoken out about the whole ordeal, providing support to fellow Black Americans who are flooding the streets in response to Floyd's death. While she didn't protest on the streets like her brother, she made sure to share words of encouragement instead.
"This brutality is not new. I waver between being broken hearted and full of rage. I am looking for the light. I know I would see it in your eyes, so I'm imagining our collective light."
The siblings join the growing list of celebrities and public figures to use their influence towards a greater cause. The likes of Nick Cannon, Jamie Foxx, Halsey, Stephen Curry, and Michael B. Jordan have also taken to the streets to protest with thousands of others.
