Kevin Hart: i am worried about black men’s life

belfasttelegraph: Kevin Hart has said he is worried about the next generation of black men, following the death of George Floyd.

Protests have flared up across the United States after the handcuffed black man died in Minneapolis this week after a white police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes.

Video of the arrest, which has gone viral, shows Mr Floyd begging for air and saying, “please, I can’t breathe” and “don’t kill me.”

As a father I’m worried about the future of our next generation of black men & the generations after that & the ones after that. If we do not do our job right now & do what we can to have a law put in place to help us feel protected in these streets then this type of crime will continue to happen without a worry in the world. A law needs to be put in place that will make these officers accountable as well as the other officers who are present at the scene of the crime. This needs to happen….This shouldn’t even be a discussion it should be an immediate ACTION!!!!! We need all of you governors & mayors to step up and do the right thing. I don’t know how to go about this but I promise you that I will try my best to figure it out…..ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! We deserve the right to feel safe. A law like this will give us a level of comfort. Consequences to such ridiculous acts should be immediate and known by all. 20yrs in prison or life in prison….it has to be something….the other officers present that don’t stop or prevent these acts should get time as well….SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE IN THE SYSTEM NOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!! Point blank…. Enough is Enough!

A post shared by Kevin Hart (@kevinhart4real) on


The officer Derek Chauvin, 44, was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Sharing a photograph on Instagram of himself with his two-year-old son Kenzo, comedian and actor Hart wrote: “As a father I’m worried about the future of our next generation of black men & the generations after that & the ones after that.

“If we do not do our job right now & do what we can to have a law put in place to help us feel protected in these streets then this type of crime will continue to happen without a worry in the world.

“A law needs to be put in place that will make these officers accountable as well as the other officers who are present at the scene of the crime. This needs to happen….This shouldn’t even be a discussion it should be an immediate ACTION!!!!!

“We deserve the right to feel safe. A law like this will give us a level of comfort.

“Consequences to such ridiculous acts should be immediate and known by all. 20yrs in prison or life in prison….it has to be something….the other officers present that don’t stop or prevent these acts should get time as well….SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE IN THE SYSTEM NOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!! Point blank…. Enough is Enough!”

Hart is one of a string of high-profile figures who has spoken out following the death of Mr Floyd.

Rapper Cardi B wrote: “Enough is enough! What will it take ? A civil war ? A new president? Violent riots ? It’s tired ! I’m tired ! The country is tired !

You don’t put fear in people when you do this you just show how coward YOU ARE ! And how America is really not the land of the free !”

Ariana Grande encouraged her fans to educated themselves about racism and wrote: “Again, i ask my followers to please keep signing these petitions, making donations if u are able to, continue having conversations w family and friends about racism (overt and covert) and the senseless acts of murder that happen in this country far too often, please keep reading up, following accounts on here (i will recommend some!) to keep u updated and learning and sharing links and resources.

This isue of racism is getting out of hand. I couldn’t watch that video till the end. George Floyd kept begging please, please I can’t breathe. He didn’t resist arrest and he was already cuffed. Still the white police man refuse to remove his knee from his neck despite all the pleading and shouting! I don’t think White people sees the blacks as humans

Majority of the slave trade deals occurred in West Africa…I think its time we introduce some kind of re-settlement scheme for African Americans willing to return to their origin…

To all the African Americans out there…. Come back home, We love you!

We can build a better society for ourselves…A society free from racism…

The black race has seen so many racist abuse in a long time which some have resulted to deaths. American is one country that racism is very peculiar especially from the police. Over the years police actions on the black race has led to lost of lives of many black Americans. George Floyd is just one of many victims and the US government needs to a take a strong action to stop this killings. The video of George death is really heart breaking.. The world needs to unite against racism.

It is terrible after seeing the Video of full grown man asking of his mama….racist and discrimination has to stop…if not…the world will no longer be a better place for all of us….justice should be taken to the end. Above all we need to educate our children at tender age that we are one…and there’s nothing like black and white.
Government need to take appropriate measures against the discriminate.

Americans are naturally racists,they keep killing Blacks like flies and nothing is being done to put an end to this inhuman and barbaric practices.
Must Blacks fight back to gain their natural rights to life?
It’s a big shame on America.

This is so annoying, we have just one race created by God. #the human race . Why would a sane person hate another because he’s not the same color, if it was a white boy would the officer kill him like that? While those morons watched. Some thing has to be done and now.

I just don’t know why Racism has taken the mind of the white people. If not for God fearing and human conscience it doesn’t stop the black to start killing the white also. But all is not encouraging. Justice for George Floyd.
