Kanye West, a hip-hop artist who recently revealed his new-found relationship with Jesus Christ, is showing his support for racial equality. He recently set-up a 529 college saving funds as part of his $2 million worth of donations to African American people who were killed unjustly.
Among the beneficiaries of the college tuition is Gianna Floyd, a 6-years-old daughter of George Floyd. George recently made the headlines when he died while being arrested by Minneapolis police officers on May 25. His controversial death sparked a nationwide fight for racial equality.
The young child was recently seen on her uncle Terrance’s shoulders saying: “Daddy changed the world”. Her mother Roxie Washington told Gianna that her father died because he couldn’t breathe.
Kanye West has not yet spoken about the controversy regarding George’s death but he posted on his Instagram his support for “Blackout Tuesday”. It is a campaign where brands and individuals agreed not to sell or buy anything in order to focus on the matters of racial inequality.
