"All of it makes me sick... the whole system is corrupt"

Billboard reports that Kpop singer Jay Park has donated $10,000 to Black Lives Matter.

Cities across US are being rocked by protests following the murder of African American man George Floyd by police officer Derek Chauvin.

In response, Park expressed his support for justice campaigns such as Black Lives Matters.

In a lengthy post on Instagram, Park wrote how he was fed up with the reoccurrence of incidents towards black people.

“Sick of making post’s like this and sick of the same shit happening over and over again,” Park wrote.

“Me being inspired by black culture aside me having black homies aside just as a man and a human being.. to think how helpless he felt and how inhumane he was treated… to think what if that was my dad, or uncle or homie makes me sick to my stomach.”

Park went on to blame institutional flaws that result in people in positions of power not doing anything.

“Police Departments and Ppl in position of power not doing anything to provoke change.. all of it makes me sick… the whole system is corrupt… and nobody wants to admit it cause they are all afraid of taking responsibility for countless years of unjust inhumane treatment,” the Korean American wrote.

On Twitter, Park revealed that he donated $10,000 to Black Lives Matter in the hope that “truth prevails.”

In related news, Dallas Police Department were spammed with Kpop clips after asking people to share “videos of illegal activity” from the Black Lives Matter protests.

Additionally, Chauvin’s Asian wife filed for divorce on the same day he was charged for the murder of Floyd.

Asians in Minnesota are also being targeted for Tou Thao’s involvement in Floyd’s murder.

Meanwhile, musician AJ Rafael is calling for Asian Americans to “do better” in calling out injustices following the death of George Floyd.

Sick of making post’s like this and sick of the same shit happening over and over again. Me being inspired by black culture aside me having black homies aside just as a man and a human being.. to think how helpless he felt and how inhumane he was treated… to think what if that was my dad, or uncle or homie makes me sick to my stomach. Countless INNOCENT UNARMED ppl losing their lives and nobody taking responsibility or being held accountable. Ppl who are supposed to protect and keep the public safe don’t even have the common sense or compassion to know if they are killing somebody innocent? Police Departments and Ppl in position of power not doing anything to provoke change.. all of it makes me sick… the whole system is corrupt… and nobody wants to admit it cause they are all afraid of taking responsibility for countless years of unjust inhumane treatment. Cant even begin fathom how fed up the black community is with so many years of abuse. I Pray to God the truth prevails and i Pray to God ppl who have compassion and empathy are put into a place of power and authority and ppl who abuse their power for their own greed and ego and to feel superior all disappear. Same for the civilians abusing their privilege calling the police and LYING. Act like some Fuckin human beings and may God have mercy on ur souls. #RIPGEORGEFLOYD
