‘Men Need To Be Taught Empathy And Compassion’, Burna Boy Speaks On Rape And Racial Injustice
Afro-fusion musician, Burna Boy, has reacted to the trending issues of rape in Nigeria and racial injustice in the United States.
Burna Boy, via his official Instagram page, condemned both acts dubbing them ‘crime against humanity’ that no human should commit or commend.
“Rape and racial injustice are crimes against humanity, they are vicious, insidious, and violent acts that no human should commit or commend. The stance on rape should be linear and final, there should be no grey areas, no “buts”, only that the perpetrator(s) of the act is to blame and the victim completely blameless.
“From now on, men and women alike need to be educated. Men need to be taught the concept of consent, we need to teach them empathy and compassion. We need to teach men that a woman’s body is hers and hers alone. We need to end stigmatization and victimization of rape victims, it must STOP.”
Burna Boy said that black people should be given better treatment than they are currently getting. He added; “Black people deserve and require more than we’re currently getting!
