Yesterday we reported to you how Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Tiger Shroff, Disha Patani and more expressed their rage over the death of African American man George Floyd who was pinned down by a white police office until unresponsive. Almost the whole of the USA and many others worldwide have been expressing their rage after a viral video of George Floyd’s death circulated on social media. Now joining the protests is Krystle D'souza who will be soon making her Bollywood debut with Emraan Hashmi in the upcoming film Chehre.
Krystle D'souza in her multiple Tweets addressed the matter and wrote, "I’ve been struggling these past few days to put the right words together to express all the pain and anger that i am feeling. Just when you think what else 2020 can throw at us you see the another brutal death of George Floyd and it just broke my heart and shook me up!!
Most of us are privileged. And I say privileged because privilege is when you think something is not a problem because it’s not a problem ‘to you personally’.. but remember we are all one so in times like these it is our responsibly to stand up and speak up against racism.
I am here today trying in my own little way to support and protect the black community and everyone that needs our voices as their support. (Cont..) pic.twitter.com/BhimY1ZbuE— Krystle Dsouza (@krystledsouza) June 2, 2020
Be the change you wish to see. Our words can and will contribute towards a positive change. I personally would not feel right not speaking on this situation.
I request every influencer, brand, friend, family and everyone that follows me to please not stay silent..not now...because now isn’t the time to be muted it’s the time to speak up and be loud and proud about all the right things you need to support."
She also posted a video captioning, "I am here today trying in my own little way to support and protect the black community and everyone that needs our voices as their support".
Sharing a picture of racial discrimination she captioned, "I know a lot of you will say, “oh but you live in India, how does this matter to you” ....”there are so many matters in India talk about those” to them I want to say that I do and I will always continue to address matters that happen in India, but this is my world as well."
And in her last tweet she also explained why it is compulsory to talk about the subject even if it's not related to our country as she mentions, "A virus that began in a city in China affected us ALL! So always remember that we are all Interdependent and interlinked. Speak up about all things that matter! Humanity&equality for all...always
#georgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #speakup #enoughisenough #icantbreathe".
