Kendrick Lamar, Russell Westbrook and DeMar DeRozan joined in protests in Compton, Sunday. Marching from Gateway Towne Center in Los Angeles to Compton City Hall, for the “Compton Peace Walk,” the trio of LA-area superstars joined and spoke to the crowd.
“Continue to fight for one another. Continue to lift each other up. Continue to protect your own, protect your team, protect your family. In times like this, we need to stick together. Put a fist up.” Shouted Westbrook.
“Let’s get a moment of silence. For our lost ones. For their families. For their struggles,” he added with his fist in the air.
Compton Mayor Aja Brown also promoted the protest on Facebook, writing: “Our kids are watching us and they deserve to live in a better world, a better city that ensures their peace and protection, full liberty and justice for all.”
The protest comes after the death of George Floyd last month sparked demonstrations across the globe. We have watched hundreds of thousands of protesters fight for equality the past couple weeks, from huge corporations to small mom and pop, the message has been clear, BLACK LIVES MATTER, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
