Having being vocal about raising voice against racism and brutalities against black people, six-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton on Monday joined the street protest in London raising the banner Black Lives Matter.
Hamilton, Formula 1’s only black driver, uploaded a photo on his Twitter handle showing himself with his face covered, a “black is a vibe” T-shirt and holding a sign with the message “Black Lives Matter” on it.
He subsequently posted a message about his participation in the protest.
“Went down to Hyde Park today for the peaceful protest and I was so proud to see in person so many people of all races and backgrounds supporting this movement,” Hamilton wrote.
“I was proud to be out there acknowledging and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, and my black heritage. I was so happy to see people of all ages, sporting Black Lives Matter signs and saying it just as passionately as I was, ” He said.
“I was also happy to see so many white supporters out there today in the name of equality for all. It was really moving. I’m feeling extremely positive that change will come, but we cannot stop now”.
“Keep pushing. #blacklivesmatter”
