Beyoncé encourages fans to “remain aligned and focused” in Fight for Justice
Beyoncé is calling on protesters to keep efforts "aligned and focused" as the fight for justice continues.
Queen Bey took to Instagram to point out that the murder of George Floyd mustn’t be in vain
"The world came together for George Floyd," she wrote, along with an aerial shot showing the thousands of protesters in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where George Floyd was murdered. "We know there is a long road ahead. Let’s remain aligned and focused in our call for real justice."
Last week, Beyonce posted a photo of Floyd on her homepage with the simple but powerful caption: "Rest in Power George Floyd."
In a separate message, she wrote: "We all witnessed his murder in broad daylight. We're broken and we're disgusted. We cannot normalize this behavior," she said. "No more senseless killings of human beings, no more seeing people of color as less than human. We can no longer look away."
The Minneapolis police officer who pinned Floyd to the ground with a knee to the neck, resulting in his death, is now facing second degree murder charges. The other officers involved in the killing are charged with aiding and abetting murder.
