Janelle Monáe Wants White People to Wake Up Amid George Floyd Protests

Janelle Monáe is speaking out about the protests that have erupted after the George Floyd murder in late May in America.

In a profile in Variety, wants people — especially white people — to wake up.

“Because we need you. We need more people inside these places, inside these police precincts and these buildings, to stand up. And to be marching. And to be right there with us,” Janelle told the magazine. “This administration, along with the president, they’re evil.”

Meanwhile, Janelle also spoke about her role in season two of Homecoming.

“To have a Black woman and an Asian woman in a relationship on TV is the type of representation that we need,” she said, adding, “being a member of the LGBTQIA+ community is an honor.”
