Dancehall giant Bounty Killer and Konshens were among protesters in Kingston last weekend protesting for racial equality.
‘Fed up’ with colorism, and the covert biases crippling Black progress worldwide, Bounty Killer and Konshens joined scores of Jamaicans in protest before the US embassy last weekend. The “Living Dangerously” deejay was there not only as the ‘poor people’s governor’ but as the concerned, disgusted father of two adult sons living in America. Bounty has been denied entry to the US for upwards of ten years and cites racism as the reason Uncle Sam keeps snubbing his request. Honoring his promise to ‘stand in solidarity with families in the US’, the veteran celeb stood side by side with other angered citizens, united by a common cause beneath the broiling Kingston sun.
A video clip of the day’s events was added to Bounty’s Instagram page showing the singer with his protest sign bearing the national flag, George Floyd’s image, and the message: “WE STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH OUR BLACK BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE UNITED STATES!”
