In the wake of the George Floyd murder, more light has been shone on the deep-rooted issue that is Systemic Racism in America. While police brutality and police killings are major problems, it is now very clear that the bigger issue with the unjustified killing of not just George Floyd but a large number of African-Americans before him is racism. Systemic Racism.

As millions, both black and white, go out on the streets to protest this latest act of injustice––even risking their health during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic––many celebrities have taken to social media to speak out against police brutality and systemic racism at large.

“The only wrong thing to say is to say nothing.”

-Meghan Markle on Racism


One of the latest celebrities to add her voice to what has become a global conversation is the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. Explaining why it is important to speak up against injustice, Meghan Markle says “the only wrong thing to say is to say nothing.”

From Breonna Taylor to Ahmaud Arbery, systemic racism, also known as institutional racism, appears to be the major reason white people approach confrontations with black people with a prejudice that doesn’t allow them to think rationally in the presence of a fire arm.

I’ve been trying to process what can be said or heard in this moment. I haven’t been able to get the image of the knee on his neck out of my head. It’s there every morning when I rise and when I go through the ordinary duties of the day. While pouring coffee, lacing my shoes, and taking a breath, I think: He doesn’t get to do this. And now the video from the other angle of two other officers pinning him down. My heart sinks even deeper. His family and friends say he was a gentle giant. His death has now shown us he had a giant soul. If the largeness of a soul is determined by its sphere of influence, George Floyd is a Mighty soul. #GeorgeFloyd: We speak your name. But this time we will not let your name be just a hashtag. Your spirit is lifted by the cries of all of us who call for justice in your name!
