By David Johnson/BNC Digital Reporter
While many have taken to the streets in protest over systemic racism that has continued to divide the United States, the usually vocal Kanye West has been surprisingly quiet up until Thursday.
The rapper would break his silence and revealed via representative that he had donated $2 million to charities associated with Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd.
West has also set up a college fund to cover the future tuition for Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter Gianna.
In addition, the rapper has also pledged to cover legal costs for the Arbery and Taylor families. In his hometown of Chicago, West will be aiding black-owned businesses effected by COVID-19.
West joins the many black celebrities that haven’t just talked about change, but played a role in making a difference in the community.
