Kenya Moore explained to her fans that her ancestors had to die so that she and a lot more people could have a voice these days, and this is extremely important. Check out the emotional message that she shared on her social media account.
‘#Voted. Countless ancestors and freedom fighters died so that we could have a voice today. Exercise your rights and vote for change. #blm #change #georgiavoters,’ Kenya captioned her post.
Someone said: ‘The MOST powerful place to implement change in policies as it pertains to racial inequality & police brutality is AT THE BALLOT BOX!! #BlackLivesMatterToo #WeWantChange #Vote.’
A commenter wrote: ‘@thekenyamoore continue to be the inspiring and intelligent role model you were set to be. 👸🏾❤️ You are internally and externally beautiful, and articulate, with a very influential voice!’
Someone else said: ‘Were there issues at your polling place, as well? Several others are having problems with the machines,’ and a commenter posted this message: ‘So you are trying to exercise your voice today by taking a picture of you with a mask covering your mouth? There is nothing cute about this picture. In fact, it’s the opposite. It’s the suppression of the voice and human rights.’
One other follower said: ‘They didn’t die for our freedom. They were murdered because, racism. But I get what you meant. We still need to recognize that these people were murdered because of inequality. They didn’t martyr themselves for a vote.’
A commenter wrote: ‘They didn’t just die, they were murdered. We have to get that right.’
One other follower said: ‘Yes, I agree with you totally. Our ancestors fought and died for us to vote. Unfortunately, many don’t vote! Voting is the way for change. I’m hoping and praying people vote for primary in every state and for November Presidential Election.’
A follower posted: ‘After all these years, no changes. But we still show up for political parties that fail us. When will a new party form? Black voters get democrats in office. But what are Democrats really doing?’
Other than this, Kenya shared a photo from Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis with which she managed to bring tears in her fans’ eyes.
