DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON PLEDGES TO ‘NORMALIZE EQUALITY’ IN SUPPORT OF ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’
Thursday, Jun 4, 2020
Just like Don Lemon’s call for leadership amid the George Floyd protests, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is asking the same. “Where is our leader?”, The Rock asked in a passionate video posted to Twitter. The Fast & Furious star stood in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement with a call-to-action to “normalize equality.”
“Where is our leader at this time when our country is down on its knees, begging, pleading, hurt, angry, frustrated, in pain with its arms out, just wanting to be heard? The Rock asked. He continued ‘You stand up, stand up with me because I got you. I hear you, I’m listening to you. And you have my word that I’m going to do everything in my power, until my dying day, my last breath, to do everything I can to create the change that is needed, to normalize equality because Black lives matter.’ Where are you?”
He went on to address the All Lives Matter movement. “Of course, all lives matter, but in this moment right now, this defining, pivotal, explosive moment where our country is down on its knees…we must say the words: Black lives matter,” he explained.
Protests have taken the country by storm after unarmed black man, George Floyd, died when a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
