The pregnant actress is one of the many celebrities who have been speaking up about racial injustice in America as well as all over the world in the aftermath of George Floyd’s senseless killing. That being said, Sophie Turner took to social media this past weekend to share a very inspirational and powerful message about what it really takes to achieve equality.
It all started with the Game of Thrones star sharing some pics from the Black Lives Matter protest she and her Jonas Brothers singer hubby, Joe attended together in L.A.
That is when someone in the comment section proceeded to question the need for the protests to continue given the fact that all four of the police officers involved in the killing of Floyd have been arrested and are awaiting trial.
‘So there justice sooooo can we have peace now ?’ they asked.
In response, Sophie took this opportunity to educate the commenter and many other people reading her message, on why the protests are not only necessary but vital!
She explained that ‘This isn’t just about those four cops, this is about Breonna Taylor, about Trayvon Martin, about Eric Garner, this is about the systemic racism black people have faced for hundreds of years. This is about changing the system. Justice will be reached when society reflects our believes that we are all equal. Until then there should be no peace.’
This is not the first time Sophie shows support to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Just last week, she also posted on her platform that: ‘My heart is heavy. I stand in solidarity with all those speaking out against racism and fighting for justice and equality. Silence is not an option.’
Furthermore, she also encouraged her followers to really learn about the movement by providing them with a list of BLM activists that they should follow.
