The Black Lives matter movement has taken the world by storm. Every sports events and the streets have seen protests carried out. However, there still has been cases of black lives being mercilessly taken in the United States.
Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has made a strong statement on the Black Lives Matter movement citing the example of Marting Luther King.
“It’s up to each and every one of us to continue calling out systemic racism. MLK spoke 57 years ago about a more just and equal world for all, and we will not give up the fight,” he tweeted.
The movement was carried out across the globe after George Flyod, a black man, was killed on May 25 in the Powderhorn community of Minneapolis, Minnestoa in the United States after an officer, Derek Chauvin, kept his knee on Flyod’s neck for nearly nine minutes.
Chauvin was fired from the police department, with protesters taking on the country in large number, demanding justice for Flyod with a clear message reading ‘Black Lives Matter’.
