Grammy-winning singer Beyoncé has stepped forward to speak out on the controversial Dallas police shooting this week.
The Texas native went to Instagram Saturday (July 9) to voice her thoughts and send prayers to the slain cops.
Rest in peace to the officers whose lives were senselessly taken yesterday in Dallas. I am praying for a full recovery of the seven others injured. No violence will create peace. Every human life is valuable. We must be the solution. Every human being has the right to gather in peaceful protest without suffering more unnecessary violence. To effect change we must show love in the face of hate and peace in the face of violence.
Earlier this week, Bey also penned an open note regarding the slayings of black men Alton Sterling and Philander Castile at the hands of white officers.
A couple nights ago, Bey’s husband Jay Z released his new “Spiritual” tribute track in the wake of the multiple slayings.
Various hip-hop artists have publicly addressed the slaying of Minnesota man Philando Castile this week.
Less than 24 hours!! Another black man killed at the hands of a police officer. This shit is getting really spooky out here. The black man in America is becoming disposble by the Police!! These cops are walking away with no punishment or on paid leave while Black Men are being murdered, some even on camera!! Obama has got to do something about this before he gets out of office. Please @barackobama address this & Chicago's street violence before you're out of office. If you don't, we have no chance in what's to come. #RipPhilandoCastile
