Joan Jett has spoken out about inclusivity and racism after George Floyd, a black man, was killed by a white police officer last week, sparking protest movements across the U.S.
On Monday (June 1), Jett took to her Twitter to write:
“There is systemic racism and inequality in this country and until these issues are taken up seriously by elected officials, we can’t have the changes we ALL know are necessary and imperative to fixing this. So it is up to us to treat each other right, and with respect. And remember, we are still in the middle of a plague, covid-19 doesn’t stop during all this. I know each of these things on their own, are overwhelming. To be continued….with love.”
