Fifth Harmony Star Normani: ‘I shouldn’t have to worry any time my father leaves the house’
Songstress Normani, of Fifth Harmony, has written an open letter addressing police brutality and the #BlackLivesMatter movement after this week's horrendous murders of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling in the USA.
She took to her official Twitter page to share her thoughts on what's happening and wrote: "Being a woman of color, I can truthfully state that I don’t feel safe around those who are sworn to honor and uphold the law.
"I shouldn’t have to worry any time my father walks outside the front door of our home. I shouldn’t be afraid of that he may be taken away from me and shot dead because of false perceptions that all black men are dangerous regardless of education or status."
Normani continued: "The first step is to be truthful and acknowledge that racial problems remain in this country. Sadly on social media and news outlets minorities are always depicted as violent criminals and people who are lazy, don’t want to work and live off of welfare."
She then wrote about Presidential candidate Donald Trump, adding: "Donald Trump, the man that wants to be our president and run the free world can take it upon himself to go on social media and make offensive comments about every minority group but remain silent about something as important as this."
