The statements of the Spanish singer Rosalía before the death of the African American George Floyd

Madrid / The Spanish singer Rosalía “hurts her heart” because “there are still people who lose their lives because of the color of their skin.”

Rosalia has used her profiles on social media to appeal against racism after the death of African-American George Floyd at the hands of violence by a police officer in Minneapolis.

“My heart hurts when I think that today there are still people who lose their lives and are treated unfairly because of the color of their skin. And I want to use my account to say it, ”he wrote.

“I will never understand why our society is racist, let alone why we continue to allow it to be. Let us love, respect, inform, ask, learn to do better in our day to day and do not allow or shut up injustices, Black Lives Matter, ”he said.

The singer has released that message with an image and an English text “we cannot stay silent about things that actually matter. (We cannot remain silent with the things that are happening) ”.

In this way, Rosalía has joined other popular characters in the world of the scene such as Naomi Campbell, Penelope Cruz, Michelle Pfeiffer or Natalie Portman.

Protests over the event have led to protests in many parts of the United States, including in front of the White House, where according to the New York Times, the Secret Service, in charge of the security of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, protected him on Friday in the underground bunker of the building.

Rosalia has recently released a new song, “TKN“, a collaboration with American rapper Travis Scott.

So also the Spanish singer confirms that she has not stopped her rhythm in recent weeks, despite the pandemic.

A single about which he said there is no “better” time than this to launch the song: “After so many months locked up missing freedom (?) I hope it will fill you with energy, strength and make you dance.” (June 1, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
