Billie Eilish decided to get fully into politics and comment on the issue that is bringing her head to her native USA. violence against African Americans.
The death at the hands of a white African American police officer George Floyd has brought a wave of protests in the USA. that have reached the doors of the White House itself.
And several figures of the show have already spoken about it, but what Billie Eilish said is not wasted.
The young singer, winner of five Grammys Awards decided to break the silence on this subject with controversial statements that have brought rejection and support.
“If I hear one more white person say‘ all lives matter ”once again, I'm going to lose my mind. Could you shut up a damn time? No one is telling you that your life is not difficult. No one literally says anything about you. All that all of you damn do is find a way to do everything about yourself. This is not about you, you have no need. You are not in danger, ”said Eilish.
Billie Eilish was referring to the "Al lives matter" movement, which emerged as a counterproposal to the "Black lives matter" campaign, which denounces police and social brutality against people of African descent in the United States.
“Society gives you privileges just for being white. You can be poor, you can be fighting. And even then, the color of your skin gives you more privileges than you think and nobody says that makes you better than anyone else. It just allows you to live your life without having to worry about surviving simply because of your skin color! You are privileged! ”Denounced Billie Eilish.
For Billie Eilish, she wondered that if all lives really matter in her country, why is it only African-Americans who are being killed and violated in their fundamental rights.
"Do you know why? The damn. PRIVILEGE. WHITE (...) The phrase "black lives matter" does not mean that other lives do not. It is simply drawing the attention of society that clearly believes that African-American lives don't matter, "insisted Billie Eilish.
