Namibian personalities weigh in on racism

It has been a dark few days for the world however just as the leaders they are, Namibian personalities make their stance known on the current affairs.

Namibian celebrities such as Exit, Sunnyboy, Mavis Braga, Maria Nepembe, Lioness, Gina Jeanz, Dillish to mention but a few posted on their social media platforms expressing their concerns and condemning racism. This follows a recent murder of a black unarmed American man George Floyd by a police officer.

According to BBC, for some, Floyd’s death was the continuation of the stories of other three people murdered by the police the incidences which took place in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and all three deaths sparked protest movements. 

Maria Nepembe on her timeline said that she does not have encouraging words but hope that tomorrow is better because she is tired of using hashtags, sending petitions, and having to delete Apps like TikTok which does not make a difference. “ I am exhausted, I am tired of black people suffering, I am tired, when does it end? The colour of my skin does not make me less of a human being,” She stated.

“ I’m with you in this fight, I feel your pain, I’ve seen your tears, enough is enough,” said Exit adding that he condemns all acts of racism and discrimination. 

Mavis Braga feels like one should not begin to believe that racism is an American problem with Dillish adding that it is not black versus white but everybody versus racists. Furthermore, Gina Jeanz shows how she is enraged by TikTok that allegedly censored the black lives matters hashtag, a platform that supposedly encourages self-expression. Lioness also sent out her heart to all those protesting for justice and inequality.
