Lady GaGa has lambasted the president of the United States, Donald Trump, a fool and a racist while branding his governance failure in her reaction to the death of George Floyd.
Lady GaGa, in her lengthy post on social media, said she didn’t want to contribute to more violence, but to provide solution to the black community.
The singer faulted president Trump for his ‘ignorance and prejudice’ while black lives continue to be taken. “The voices of the black community have been silenced for too long and that silence has proven deadly time and time again”, Lady GaGa shared.
The 34-year-old star promised to ‘’show love for the black community’’ and pledged to do whatever she could to campaign for change.
“I have a lot of things to say about this, but the first thing I want to say is I’m afraid to say anything that will incite further anger, although that is precisely the emotion that’s justified.
“I do not wish to contribute to more violence, I wish to contribute to a solution. I am outraged by the death of George Floyd as I have been by the deaths of exponentially too many black lives over hundreds of years that have been taken from us in this country as a result of systemic racism and the corrupt system that supports it.
“The voices of the black community have been silenced for too long and that silence has proven deadly time and time again.
“And no matter what they do to protest, they are still meet with no compassion by the leaders that are meant to protect them. Everyday people in America are racist, that’s a fact.
“We have known for a long time that President Trump has failed. He holds the most powerful office in the world, yet offers nothing but ignorance and prejudice while black lives continue to be taken.
“We have known he is a fool, and a racist, since he took office. He is fueling a system that is already rooted in racism, and racist activity, and we can all see what is happening. It’s time for a change.’’
“We MUST show our love for the black community.
“As a white, privileged woman, I take an oath to stand by that. We haven’t, as a privileged community, done enough to fight racism and stand up for those people who are being killed by it.
“This isn’t justice. This is an epic tragedy that defines our country and has for a long time. I am sad. I am angry.
“And I will use the words that I can find to try to communicate what needs to change in as an effective and non-violent way as possible for me.”
