Paul Pogba spoke out against racism with the slogan: “Black Lives Matter”

Many celebrities have spoken out against discrimination and racism. In this case, the footballer Paul Pogba expressed himself in social networks and surpassed the 1.5 million likes1.

The French midfielder from Manchester United showed off his look with a positive message to society, against racism.

A clenched fist, the symbol of the anti-racist 'Black Lives Matter' movement: Manchester United's French midfielder Paul Pogba left a message on his Instagram account and many people reacted to his post.

During the past few days I have thought a lot about how to express my feelings about what happened in Minneapolis. I felt anger, pity, hatred, indignation, pain, sadness. Sadness for George and for all black people who suffer from racism EVERY DAY! Whether in football, at work, at school, ANYWHERE! This has to stop, once and for all! Not tomorrow or the next day, it has to end TODAY!  Violent acts of racism can no longer be tolerated. I can’t tolerate. I won’t tolerate. WE WON’T TOLERATE. Racism is ignorance. LOVE is intelligence. STOP the silence. STOP racism. #JusticeForFloyd #GeorgeFloyd #BlackLivesMatter...

The gesture was popularized at demonstrations against police violence in the U.S. following the death of George Floyd, an African-American who was smothered by a white police officer in a May 25 arrest in Minneapolis. Since that event, many celebrities have spoken out against racism.

It is difficult to understand that racism still exists. In this context, many people have used their social networks to leave a positive message of non-discrimination.
