The singer continues to support Black Lives Matter and calls for the dismantling of statues of racist historical figures in the state of Tennessee, where she hails from.
Taylor Swift has long been reserved on the subject, but now he has become politically engaged. The singer called this weekend for the dismantling of statues of racist historical figures in the state of Tennessee, where she comes from.
Taylor Swift concluded: “I ask the Capitol Commission and the Tennessee Historical Commission to consider how offensive it would be to continue to fight for its monuments. As you continue to fight to honor racists, to show the blacks of Tennessee and all their allies where you stand, and that you perpetuate that hatred. You can’t change history, but you can change this.”
Many celebrities became involved in the Black Lives Matter movement, which was revived by the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police in late May in Minnesota. A few days after his death, as protests in the United States increased, Taylor Swift spoke directly to Donald Trump on Twitter. She accused him of “fanning the flames of white supremacism and racism” and said, “We will fire you with our votes in November”. Taylor Swift also encouraged his fans to “elect people who will fight police violence and racism”.
