Michael B. Jordan is one of the latest actors to share his thoughts on the issue of police brutality, and took to Instagram to share his thoughts.
Following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, celebrities have been sharing their thoughts and feelings about police shootings and black lives. Michael B. Jordan is one of the latest actors to share his thoughts on the issue, taking to Instagram to say:
"I’m still looking for the words to express my pain. The fact is Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were not unfortunate accidents. These are just a few of the countless incidents of violent neglect, poor training and lack of accountability that clearly illustrate one thing: Black people are being disproportionally dehumanized and murdered, this must stop!"
He also added words of condolence for the police officers in Dallas who were killed following a peaceful protest and their families. "There are no adequate words for the fallen officers in Dallas," he wrote. "From the bottom of my heart, I thank them for protecting the peaceful protestors, their courage and effort to support us is what we need more of."
The actor hopes to be able to aid in the changes necessary to eradicate hate and the systemic murder of black men. "My mission is to channel my anger and energy - along with my love and hope for the future into actively finding solutions. Change will take all of us, we can no longer say or do...Nothing."
