Halle Berry has hit out at ‘Black Lives Matter’ supporters who talk the talk but fail to walk the walk.
The actress was making an appearance at the Cannes Lions Girls’ Lounge when she spoke out about those who spend a lot of time talking about the movement but don’t really do anything much else.
“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.”
We have to agree with Halle here.
While building awareness and discussing the issues is important, unless it is followed up with genuine action then it’s all just so much hot air.
