World famous, award winning, rap artist Kanye West goes against the grain and changes his profile pic to a white square to condemn the Black Lives Matter looters.
While celebrities and big name brands are changing their profile pictures to black squares to show solidarity for the Black Lives Matter protesters, rapper Kanye west did the opposite; uses white square to condemn the violence, rioting and looting.
The protests that were supposed to honour the memory and mourn the loss of George Floyd was supposed to be peaceful but has since changed into a nationwide violent riot.
Many stores, including small businesses, have been looted and residential homes burnt to the ground.
The riots have been even more damaging to the black community than the death of George Floyd as it has cost many hard working black Americans their jobs and has resulted in the death of many more.

What about the black people who have no grocery store now?
No pharmacy. No gym. No restaurants. Nothing. Everything is burned to the ground.
Don’t those black lives matter, too?
