Beyonce Demands Policy “Stop Killing Us”

Bey_Freedom_OhsodjMotivated by the murders of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling at the hands of police officers, Beyonce has spoken out in a new message posted on her official website.

“WE’RE GOING TO STAND UP AS A COMMUNITY AND FIGHT AGAINST ANYONE WHO BELIEVES THAT MURDER OR ANY VIOLENT ACTION BY THOSE WHO ARE SWORN TO PROTECT US SHOULD CONSISTENTLY GO UNPUNISHED,’ she says in the statement.

Read her full statement below:

WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE KILLINGS OF YOUNG
MEN AND WOMEN IN OUR COMMUNITIES.

IT IS UP TO US TO TAKE A STAND AND DEMAND THAT THEY
“STOP KILLING US.”

WE DON’T NEED SYMPATHY,
WE NEED EVERYONE TO RESPECT OUR LIVES.

WE’RE GOING TO STAND UP AS A COMMUNITY AND FIGHT AGAINST
ANYONE WHO BELIEVES THAT MURDER OR ANY VIOLENT ACTION BY
THOSE WHO ARE SWORN TO PROTECT US SHOULD
CONSISTENTLY GO UNPUNISHED.

THESE ROBBERIES OF LIVES MAKE US FEEL HELPLESS AND HOPELESS
BUT WE HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR THE RIGHTS OF
THE NEXT GENERATION, FOR THE NEXT YOUNG MEN AND
WOMEN WHO BELIEVE IN GOOD.

THIS IS A HUMAN FIGHT. NO MATTER YOUR RACE, GENDER, OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. THIS IS A FIGHT FOR ANYONE WHO FEELS MARGINALIZED,
WHO IS STRUGGLING FOR FREEDOM AND HUMAN RIGHTS.

THIS IS NOT A PLEA TO ALL POLICE OFFICERS BUT TO HUMAN
BEING WHO FAILS TO VALUE LIFE. THE WAR ON PEOPLE OF COLOR AND
ALL MINORITIES NEED TO BE OVER.

FEAR IS NOT AN EXCUSE. HATE WILL NOT WIN.

WE ALL HAVE THE POWER TO CHANNEL OUR ANGER AND FRUSTRATION
INTO ACTION. WE MUST USE OUR VOICES TO CONTACT THE POLITICIANS
AND LEGISLATURES IN OUR DISTRICTS AND DEMAND SOCIAL
AND JUDICIAL CHANGES.

WHILE WE PRAY FOR THE FAMILIES OF ALTON STERLING AND PHILANDO CASTILE, WE WILL ALSO PRAY FOR AN END TO THIS PLAGUE OF INJUSTICE
IN OUR COMMUNITIES.

CLICK IN TO CONTACT THE POLITICIANS AND LEGISLATORS IN YOUR AREA. YOUR VOICE WILL BE HEARD.

-BEYONCÉ
