“Kneeling has become a mockery… Kneeling on George Floyd’s neck is what killed him.”
Last week, a video showing Hustlers actor Keke Palmer confronting members of the National Guard at a Black Lives Matter protest went viral on Twitter.
“This is when y’all stand together with the community, with society, to stop the governmental oppression,” Keke said in the video. “Period. We need you.”
She went on: “March beside us. You get your people. You march beside us. Let the revolution be televised. March beside us and show us that you’re here for us. Make history with us, please.”
Eventually, the members of the National Guard said they couldn’t march with the protesters, but agreed to kneel in a display of solidarity. Through cheers from the crowd, Keke could be heard saying: “I don’t know. That ain’t enough for me.”
