Actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are doing their part to help combat police brutality.
“We’ve never had to worry about preparing our kids for different rules of law or what might happen if we’re pulled over in the car,” they wrote in their post, which was posted to both of their accounts.
“We don’t know what it’s like to experience that life day in and day out. We can’t imagine feeling that kind of fear and anger. We’re ashamed that in the past we’ve allowed ourselves to be uninformed about how deeply rooted systemic racism is.”
The “Green Lantern” co-stars, who have three children, also said they would begin voting for candidates with platforms that were in alignment with those ideals, E!Online reported.
“We want to know the positions of school board nominees, sheriffs, mayors, councilpersons.,” the couple said. "We want to know their positions on justice. But mainly, we want to use our privilege and platform to be an ally. And to play a part in easing pain for so many who feel as though this grand experiment is failing them.”
