Beyonce to police: Stop killing us

Singer Beyonce Knowles has finally spoken out against  the incessant killings of blacks by white policemen in The United States of America. This came prior to the recent unlawful police shooting and killing of two black men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile in Minnesota and Louisiana.

In 2014, a grand jury cleared Daniel Pantaleo, a white NYC police officer in the videotaped chokehold death of an unarmed black man, Eric Garner, who had been stopped on suspicion of selling untaxed cigarettes. Despite the fact that he made no attempt to run away, he was placed on chokehold which is banned under NYPD policy. He could be heard saying repeatedly “I can’t breathe”.

A second video surfaced that showed police and paramedics appearing to make no effort to revive Garner while he lay motionless on the ground. He later died at a hospital leaving a family of 6 behind.

While reacting to the chokehold death incident, President Obama said “When anybody in this country is not being treated equally under the law, that is a problem and it’s my job as President to help solve it,”

Beyonce to police: Stop killing us

Below is Beyonce’s full message which she posted as an open letter on her website:

We are sick and tired of the killings of young men and women in our communities.

It is up to us to take a stand and demand that they “STOP KILLING US.”

We don’t need sympathy. We need everyone to respect our lives.

We’re going to stand up as a community and fight against anyone who believes that murder or any violent action by those who are sworn to protect us should consistently go unpunished.

These robberies of lives make us feel helpless and hopeless but we have to believe that we are fighting for the rights of the next generation, for the next young men and women who believe in good.

This is a human fight. No matter your race, gender or sexual orientation. This is a fight for anyone who feels marginalized, who is struggling for freedom and human rights.

This is not a plea to all police officers but toward any human being who fails to value life. The war on people of color and all minorities needs to be over.

Fear is not an excuse. Hate will not win.

We all have the power to channel our anger and frustration into action. We must use our voices to contact the politicians and legislators in our districts and demand social judicial changes.

While we pray for the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, we will also pray for an end to this plague of injustice in our communities.

Click in to contact the politicians and legislators in your area. Your voice will be heard.

-Beyonce

    Can you recall the reaction of the American people in July 2015 when an American dentist from the State of Minnesota, Dr Walter J Palmer, killed Cecil, Zimbabwe’s most famous lion? The social media went crazy. Many Americans expressed their empathy towards Cecil the lion. Other Americans suggested boycotting Walter Palmer’s dentist surgery. Online petition was created and signed up by hundreds of thousands of people. For many Americans, the life of Cecil the lion was more valorous and worthy of much respect than that of the late Alton Sterling (Louisiana), Philando Castile (Minnesota), Eric Garner and many more African-Americans killed senselessly. It is well known that in the US, if you only mistreat a cat or a dog, you might find yourself in deep trouble with the law. Remember that Dr Walter went into hiding for some days.
    Dr Walter killed a lion and went into hiding. Why?
