After a week of strong protest around the cities of United States, famous English singer and songwriter Adele Laurie Blue Adkins had taken to her Instagram to stand in solidarity with protestors about racism between blacks and white.

"George Floyd's murder has sent shockwaves around the world; there are countless others that haven't", Adele wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of Floyd. "Protests and marches are happening all over the globe simultaneously and only gaining momentum." 

"So be righteously angered but be focused! Keep listening, keep asking and keep learning! It's important we don't get disheartened, hijacked or manipulated right now," she continued. "This is about systematic racism, this is about police violence, and it's about inequality. And this isn't only about America! Racism is alive and well everywhere. I wholeheartedly stand in solidarity with the fight for freedom, liberation and justice".

Earlier before now, American singer and songwriter, John Roger Stephens who is known professionally as John Legend wrote on Twitter in support of the protestors saying; "Americans have the first amendment right to peacefully protest oppression and injustice.
