Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker Share Powerful Message About “White Privilege”

In the wake of George Floyd‘s death, Boss has been using social media to call out injustice and fight for change. “Seriously, what’s it going to take to prove our lives are valuable,” he wrote. “I didn’t even know how to approach this. I see and feel the anger on my timeline and I see it on the TV. But then what? Then what? Just a few weeks ago we were yelling about Ahmaud [Arbery], then Breonna [Taylor], now yet another King was murdered in broad daylight. In my post about Ahmaud I said we can’t become desensitized. We can’t leave this alone after the hashtags stop trending. These acts are products of a system that needs to be broken. To be infiltrated.”

“But it has to happen after the headlines calm down. This anger and drive is fuel but we have to work at shutting bullsh-t like this down everyday! Holding people accountable. Even when you might be the only one to speak up,” he continued, adding, “How many hashtags do our black bodies have to make trend before a shift happens.? How many?”
