Chaka khan and Luenell have had it with mothers in their community continuing to lose their children – so, in their honor, they staged a peaceful protest on an important holiday. The singer and actor met on Sunday in Los Angeles with a bunch of other women of color – who have lost their own children or loved ones to violence … whether it’s the police or someone else’s hands else. The purpose of the rally was to denounce the murder of these children – minors and adults alike – and to offer support to their grieving mothers. We talked to Luenell about it, and she tells us that it is more urgent than ever to express her concern about this issue… and they want the public and those in power, in particular, to know #EnoughIsEnough, which also happens to be the official name of their viral campaign.
Now, as Luenell insists that the issue of black children killed goes beyond law enforcement – his and the Chaka movement come at a time when, once again, we see violence excessive being exerted on men of color – in particular, black men – – by cops and / or rogue vigilantes – encounters that often lead to their death. Of course, we are referring to two recent cases of this in Ahmaud Arbery – was beaten down after a man and his son pretend he fit the profile of a burglary suspect – and Sean Reed, who live your own death after the cops shot him in a chase.
We have already seen it … the list of black / brown people killed by the authorities is long and well documented. But, for Luenell and co., They are really upset and require structural change. Look… she is incredibly passionate about the cause and for good reason. Fortunately for mothers who lost their children in Los Angeles… Chaka and Luenell are on the front line using their voices for them.
