Janet Jackson took to Twitter to speak out in the name of George Floyd and the many other black men and women who have lost their lives at the hands of police officers.
In her tweet, she says; “We are a nation with no geographic boundaries, bound together through our beliefs. We are like-minded individuals, sharing a common vision, pushing toward a world rid of color lines.” The post was accompanied by a video of the Rhythm Nation imagery and names of numerous black victims who’ve died as a result of police brutality.
Jackson has been active on social media in the wake of Floyd’s death, on Friday (June 5), she posted a #SayHerName tribute on what would’ve been the 27th birthday of Breonna Taylor, the EMT killed by Louisville police in March when they stormed in her apartment on a “no-knock warrant” and shot her eight times after her boyfriend fired at what he believed were intruders.
