Following this unfortunate incident, a lot of people in the US came down on the streets and protested. These protests are held to demand justice for George Floyd and to stop racism. Several celebs also joined the different protests and many talked about Black Lives Matter on social media. Don Cheadle, known as War Machine in Avengers: Endgame talked to NBC News about the current scenario. The actor talked about how racism still exists within American culture.
Don Cheadle said, “This is a systemic, institutionalized problem that we are all fully aware of.” The Avengers: Endgame actor requested his white friends and colleagues to join the movement. He extended a challenge to them and said, “Get on the front lines with us.”
“It’s not going to be easy, especially with this leadership, and I use that word incredibly loosely,” added the Avengers: Endgame actor. Cheadle said that meaningful change is possible only if something is done now. He believes if people rest now, the change will take time. “It’s a cyclical thing and it can lose steam. We have to do it right now,” Don added.
