Star Wars actor John Boyega has given an emotional speech at a Hyde Park demonstration about the death of George Floyd in the US.
Boyega joined thousands of protestors in Hyde Park in a peaceful demonstration in support of Black Lives Matter.
The actor, who is best known for playing Finn in the recent Star Wars trilogy, referenced two other black Americans who controversially died in the US and the murder of Stephen Lawrence in the UK.
“We are a physical representation of our support for George Floyd," he told the demonstration. "We are a physical representation of our support for Sandra Bland. We are a physical representation of our support for Trayvon Martin. We are a physical representation of our support for Stephen Lawrence.”

He’s quite intelligent if you watch his interviews. He was co-producer in the second Pacific Rim. You could see his work in it. BUT he needs to tread carefully dealing with a scenario that he is entering into. John Boyega, all power to him, is not American. He is a British citizen.

As an african american, I appreciate this performance, but I still don't understand how a British person can be so passionate about an american issue that has absolutely nothing to do with England what so ever. We are the ones getting killed on camera over and over again over HERE. We are the ones that were taken from our homeland against our will. We are the ones who endured 400 years of slavery, a civil war for our freedom and segregation. Did I blink and miss all of those things happening in the UK or something?

@The Cass ok I'll you to win the oppression Olympics

​@F A Haha. That's cute. But it's not a civil rights movement and it certainly isn't a matter of live and death. Why don't you look Jim Crow Laws, Segregation, Black Wallstreet being burned to the ground, Black people in America being hosed down in the street by police and then you can tell me about some silly bus crew boycott. Those were real threats to our freedom. Enjoy your tea, Sir. Whinny British actors can't help us.
F A Hace 3 días
@The Cass ok no slaves were taken to England. But we did have something similar to a civil rights movement, look up the Bristol bus boycott. At the same time you african americans want allies, and at the same time, you tell ppl to mind their business

@F A Remind me...were these west indians kidnapped and dragged to England or did they move there willingly? Also, did their ancestors have to fight in bloody civil war for them to earn their "freedom?" Just curious...because I still don't under stand why John Boyega is crying like they did

I'm black too my friend, there will be no peace until everyone is willing to obey Jesus Christ. I've seen Him and He's real. He is coming. If you seek Him you will find Him. He looks nothing like the famous pictures. Now is the time to repent and prepare for the return of the King.

@John Doe I have seen panku and know he's real? Are you saying I'm lying?
John Doe
John Doe Hace 5 días
I'm not begging anyone to believe me. There will come a day when The Lord Jesus Christ will be seen by everyone. All knees will bow and confess Jesus Christ is Lord. On that day it will be too late for the unrepentant and the wicked. Mercy time is now, tomorrow is not promised. It's not God's will that anyone perish but all repent to receive eternal life. You decide your end destination. It's either heaven or hell. I'm very serious with you. I don't have time for games. Those who refuse to repent will find themselves in eternal damnation. They will be in eternal regret for their unwise actions of rejecting Jesus Christ. God gave everyone freewill it's your choice to accept or reject Jesus Christ.

On the contrary, this is exactly what Disney wants, they have a SJW agenda. Have you seen the new Star Wars movies? This is nothing but a publicity stunt, if you can't tell it's an act you're a fool.

Interesting when he said 'to be reminded that our race means nothing' when in our society I thought the main thrust was towards a post racial society where race itself literally means nothing. The passion in his speech indicates that race clearly does mean something in his mind.
