Let us continue to push and fight to end racism—Kevin Hart urges blacks
American renowned comedian Kevin Hart has urged Americans to stay united and continue pushing the fight against racism.
According to him, justice would be served when they all join voices together to fight colour issue.
“This is an amazing display of justice….This is a step in the right direction. We still have a lot of work to do though….Our voices are strong when we use them together. Let us continue to push and fight to end racism…,” he said.
Expressing his outrage over the death of George Floyd on his Twitter handle yesterday, Kevin Hart stated that voices become strong when forces are joined together.
He bemoaned that he was patiently waiting to see an intelligible decision that would be made by the law enforcers to stop the looting and rioting, yet he did not see anything special.
The comedian observed that curfews were being moved around while the national guards were called into action but little was done to arrest the other officers who were involved in George Floyd’s death.
He appealed for accountability and the involvement of other mayors and governors to be part of the change in order to gain justice for the deceased and his family.
Kevin Hart also advocated new laws to strengthen the blacks in carrying out their life duties without any oppression or stigmatisation in the United States.
“This is POWER…..Enough is Enough. It is time for change,” he cried.
The system, Kevin Hart lamented was flawed and called the blacks to take actions to create change as the oppression was enough.
He urged the media to change the narrative in their reportage to enhance objectivity, fairness and accuracy.
That, the actor indicated would win the black justice than to brush off the actual reason to concentrate on the looting and rioting, adding that the other corps who had hand in the death of George Floyd should be brought to book.
“You guys control the narrative. So I feel like you guys have a job to do about pushing the correct narrative. Right now I am watching that narrative slowly change into the rioting, into the looting.
We are not talking about the reason, we are not talking about why we are witnessing what we are witnessing. There is a reason. I don’t want to lose sight of that reason. That reason is because another man died in the hands of a police officer,” he added.
Kevin Hart regretted that George Floyd died irrational death from the hands of an evil villain who did not care about the lives of others, thus insisted the media to carry the gruesome deeds of the white police man.
“George Floyd, rest in peace, as we know was killed by a cop. It was another senseless death. When I say “another,” that’s because we’ve got several that we can talk about. Several that we can talk about, that’s the reason. So within the narrative, when you know that people are looking for justice, when you know that people are looking for this to stop, when you know that you’re looking for correction, your job should be pushing that as well,” he stated.
So far, only ex-cop Derek Chauvin has been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for the killing of 46-year-old George Floyd, who was pinned to death in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
