There were nationwide protests all over the United States last summer in order to bring awareness to racism and police brutality in the country. This is after seeing many Black Americans mistreated by cops or even killed by them. One of them was Breonna Taylor, who was shot and killed by Louisville police on March 14, 2020. They entered her home after mistaking her home to be a someone else’s drug house. Taylor was killed in gunfire after her boyfriend suspected intruders.
In September, there were no indictments of any officers involved in the shooting. The only thing that happened was Officer Brett Hankison being charged with one charge of wanton endangerment for shooting into a different apartment.
Kentucky Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, has also been hit with plenty of backlash for his lack of effort in trying to bring justice for Taylor. He even lied about trying to make homicide charges available to the Grand Jury in this case. Today, he posted a video to his Twitter feed honoring Black History Month and nobody was having it, especially Rihanna.
Rihanna quote replied to Cameron’s tweet and asked “Sup N*gga? #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor.” This was to bring awareness to the fact that he didn’t try to get justice for Taylor. Last fall, Megan Thee Stallion also called out Cameron during her Saturday Night Live performance. She used audio of Tamika D. Mallory saying how Cameron is no different than the “sellout negros that sold our people into slavery.” Cameron has sadly since said that all of this criticism doesn’t bother him.
