Lady Gaga Applauds 'Brave Citizens' Who Are Speaking Up About Racial Injustice

Lady Gaga is giving credit to those speaking up and making their voices heard during the trying times, following the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless other Black individuals.

The 34-year-old singer took to her Instagram, sharing two advocacy organizations she has made donations to.

“…I hope that all cops who have engaged in or are engaging in any racist activity are met with the highest form of law & order, although we know the law & order in this country is predicated upon racism and is itself corrupt,” she wrote. “We are once again witnessing the devastating and overwhelming evidence of police brutality and prejudicial responses from prosecutors and local officials. I also hope for the families of all Black lives who have been taken from us to see justice and healing though I believe many of us know we sadly cannot promise that.”

Gaga continued, “I applaud the brave citizens of this nation that are speaking up, and I support the unsupported voices of the Black community. I wish for their voices to be heard loudly and clearly, and that they feel loved and amplified by allies. I know you know how much I believe in kindness.”

“The spirit of this movement is intrinsically rooted in a universal dream of kindness and it’s precisely that same kindness that I am wishing for those that are suffering tonight. I have endless compassion in my heart as we struggle as one nation to find bold and effective solutions to an insidious and systemic problem that’s plagued our country since its birth.”

She urged fans, “I encourage you to learn about the important work they do and how you can get involved. Black Lives Matter.”

Over the weekend, Gaga slammed Donald Trump for his lack of action, and labeled him as racist.
