A statement or not, he proved actions speak louder than words. Kanye, on top of the public appearance, has also created a college fund for George Floyd’s daughter. The fund will help his daughter Gianna, a six-year-old daughter. He has also donated $2 million to charities associated with the movement.
The charities will help aid Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd’s families. Also black-owned businesses with financial contributions in his hometown of Chicago.
The rapper has also pledged to cover legal costs for the Arbery and Taylor families reportedly. Ahmad Arbery was fatally shot while on a jog in February. Breonna Taylor was killed in her home by police in March.
George Floyd died on May 25 after police officer Derek Chauvin pinned him to the ground using his knee. He kept his knee on Floyd’s neck during his arrest, which led to his death.
Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian has also lent her support for the movement, which doesn’t come as a surprise. Wife Kim Kardashian West has been vocal about her support of the movement, as well as with monetary aid. In her first Instagram statement on Saturday, the reality TV star expressed her “outrage” over Floyd’s death.
Her brand KKW Beauty made an announcement on Thursday. They would be “donating across organizations focused on making change and fighting racial injustice. Black Lives Matter (@blklivesmatter), NAACP Legal Defense Fund (@naacp_ldf), National Urban League (@naturbanleague), and Color of Change (@colorofchange).”
We’re happy to see Kim putting up money as for years she has benefited from the appropriation of black culture.
