Johnny Depp i Leonardo DiCaprio obvezali se na borbu protiv rasizma

Sve je više glumaca koji su se odlučili aktivno uključiti u borbu protiv rasizma nakon što je policajac Derek Chauvin ubio Georga Floyda ze je sada optužen za ubojstvo drugog stupnja. Posljednji koji su se na to obvezali su Johnny Depp i Leonardo DiCaprio i to objavama na društvenim mrežama. Johhny Depp napravio je to tako što je na Instagramu objavio video s govorom repera i aktiviste Killer Mikea a onda je napisao „Ne možete biti logični spram nelogičnog. Ne možete vratiti život koji je oduzet. Kao što ne možete zakrpati slomljeno srce. Ono što možemo jest da se obvežemo da rasizam i neznanje svojstveno tako odvratnom razmišljanju koje ga rađa nije više opcija!!! Mora doći do promjene!!! Zahtijevajte to!!!“. Osim toga, Depp je nahvalio Killer Mikea kao briljantnog glazbenika, umjetnika i borca za socijalnu pravdu.

As the majority of American people, our global community and our extended family of humans helplessly watched a man die on television… I too, was exposed to the atrocity of blatant barbarism,  ruthless cruelty and unmitigated lack of humanity.  A handcuffed man, pleading for his life lay prone with the full weight of a man sworn to defend the peace on his neck. The victim of this heinous act of cowardice, George Floyd, told the officers that he could not breathe. As he called for his dead mother, how could our collective hearts not break as his face was ground and mashed firmly into the pavement by those sworn to protect him, and all of us? Justice, I desperately hope, will address the horror of Officer Chauvin’s nonchalance and indifference to his participation in the agony, suffering and ultimately the murder of our fellow traveler George Floyd in a grotesque illustration of the abuse of power!!! There is no way to make sense of what is senseless. There is no way to restore a life that has been taken. Just as there is no way to un-break a heart that is broken. What we can do is make a vow to ourselves that racism and the ignorance inherent in such judgmental ugliness that it gives birth to, is NO LONGER AN OPTION!!! THERE MUST BE A CHANGE!!! DEMAND IT!!!! My dear friend and brother, Killer Mike – (Run The Jewels), is a brilliant musician, artist, activist for social justice and the son of an Atlanta Policeman. He is also, one of the kindest, most caring and loving human beings that I’ve ever had the pleasure and honor to know!!! I beg everyone to listen to the remarks of this true statesman. True statesmen have never been so needed, and they’ve never been in such short supply. With All Love, JD

Otprilike u isto vrijeme Leonardo DiCaprio objavio je na Instagramu grafičku poruku u kojoj je napisao „Obvezujem se na slušanje, učenje i djelovanje“.  U tekstu je nadalje napisao „Posvećen sam okončanju obespravljenosti Crne Amerike koja predugo traje. Podržavat ću one pojedince, organizacije i koalicije koje su se dugoročno obvezale na promjene“. DiCaprio je ujedno najavio kako će financijski podržati organizacije Color Of Change, Fair Fight Action, the NAACP i Equal Justice Initiative.
