Halle Berry Tells ‘Black Lives Matter’ Supporters To Stop Whining, Take Action And Create Change
Are you just as exhausted as Halle Berry? The actress says she’s personally tired of people simply talking with no real substance when it comes to making a difference with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement. A better way to put it maybe don’t whine when nothing gets done if you aren’t putting in much effort.
In recent years, social justice has been talked about nationwide including thousands of individuals and groups supporting campaigns, protest and simply taking stands against violence and police brutality, such as ones like ‘Black Lives Matters.’
According to Page Six here is what Berry says during the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity Girls’, “In my world, I get so tired of people complaining about, ‘Oh black lives matter,’ and they pontificate and pontificate about it, and I say, ‘Well, what are you doing about that? It may not seem significant to you, but that’s how we start. Have you called your local politicians, have you written a letter?’
“When they say they’ve done nothing, I say, ‘Well, don’t talk to me … because you are part of the problem because you are sitting here spewing negativity and complaining. I don’t have time for people who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.”
She concluded with these words: “I don’t have time for people who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.”
