AceShowbiz - Kanye West apparently is putting his all in fighting for justice for black community. In a video recently shared by a fan on Instagram, the "Jesus Is King" rapper was spotted joining Black Lives Matter march in Chicago.
In the Thursday, June 4 clip, the husband of Kim Kardashian was seen wearing a hoodie with his face covered. Alongside fellow protesters in his hometown, he called for criminal justice reform and police accountability.
"Chicago!!!!!!!!! Marching with Kanye ....Much love to @jaymalgreen for putting this March Together! And shouts to @bluujk23 & @willsomeelse for taking this video. #BlackLivesMatter #GeorgeFloyd #Chicago," so the user captioned the video featuring the Grammy winner. "(FOR THE RECORD, Kanye did NOT have a camera crew and actually did not want to be filmed)."
Considering his supportive comments for Donald Trump in the past, fans were confused to see him marching for Black Live Matters. "Don't he still support Trump? I'm confused," a fan wrote in the comment section. "I can't with Kanye. You can't support Trump and be protesting against all things antiTrump. Shoutout to Jamal Green he has truly grown since high school days," someone else commented, while another person snapped, "you cant be a supporter of a bigot and then march like how sway."
But not all comments were skeptical. One person called it "so dope." Meanwhile, a user stated, "Kanye IS still black after all."
Joining the protest isn't the only thing that Kanye did in solidarity for the BLM movement. The "Power" hitmaker set up a college fund for the daughter of tragic police brutality victim George Floyd as part of a generous donation drive. He promised to fully cover the tuition fees for George's six-year-old girl, Gianna, after the Minnesota resident died at the hands of a white police officer last week, May 25.
In addition, Kanye stepped up and donated a total of $2 million to date to George's family, and the relatives of fellow slain African-Americans Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, to help with legal fees as they fight for justice for their loved ones.
