You may not have seen it, but… The whole world is protesting the justice for Black people, in the brave and much-needed #BlackLivesMatter movement.
After a clip of Avengers: Endgame went viral, depicting the superheroes as protesters and allies, Chris Evans – who’s known for playing Captain America in the franchise – gave his seal of approval.
The two-minute-long scene shows the likes of Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and Black Panther appearing as donators, petition-makers and even Anonymous.
The only was the original Avengers: Endgame could be better is if they did what this clip did and referenced to POTUS as “Bunkerbaby”. GET THIS TWEET AN OSCAR, ALREADY.
Yvette Nicole Brown, who had a brief cameo in the film, brought the clip to Chris’ attention as she said “folks wanna make sure you, in particular, have seen this!” to which he replied saying “I have now 🙂 it’s fantastic!!! Thank you for sharing it with me,” with three heart emojis.
Unlike Avengers: Endgame, however, you cannot click your fingers and get rid of the pathetic, racist police officers and that sex-pesty can of Fanta who’s slumped in the White House. Believe me; I’ve tried. I’ve practically got arthritis now.
Chris Evans joins the likes of Michael B Jordan, John Boyega and Dwayne Johnson in using their platforms to protest the systemic anti-black racism.
On May 25, George Floyd was murdered by police, after he allegedly paid for cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 note. Footage showed three police officers kneeling on George’s neck, with him even stating that he couldn’t breath; begging them not to kill him.
According to autopsy reports, officer Derek Chauvin had his knee on George’s neck for over eight minutes, and he has since been charged with George Floyd’s murder.
You can help support George’s family by donating to the Official George Floyd Memorial Fund, which is set to cover funeral expenses, as well as grief counselling for his family.
