Keke Palmer Thinks Donald Trump Is 'Inciting a Race War'

Keke Palmer is speaking out about the protests that have erupted across the country protesting police brutality and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Of course no one wanted the coronavirus pandemic to happen, but I think quarantine allowed us to be more reflective. Maybe before, we’d be able to gloss over it because of work. It’s also been a buildup: There have been so many names turned into hashtags, so much pain. It blows me away because our language has progressed—I don’t mean specifically Black people. I mean young people, millennials. Naming white supremacy, saying that out loud. When I heard ‘defund the police,’ I’m like, Oh, sh*t. We actually could do that,” Keke told Cosmopolitan about the protests.

She added, “I think President Trump plays into it too. He’s inciting a race war. His craziness is inspiring us to just really get him the f*ck out! It’s like we needed somebody who riled us up so much for us to be activated to the point of saying, ‘Oh, hell no. I can’t let this guy continue. I have to do something. I have to find a way to let my voice be heard and to let people know that I’m not with this,’” she added.
