继早前炮轰F1 赛车手对于美国黑人弗洛伊德被杀事件沉默之后,咸美顿今次又再发言,要求外界正视种族歧视问题,不要再让错误的观念及行动存在。

35岁的咸美顿说,最近一个星期他的情绪波动非常大:“过去一个星期感觉很灰暗,我不能控制自己情绪,感到愤怒、悲伤及怀疑。”

咸美顿早前炮轰F1 赛车界别的明星车手未有为不公义事件发声,来到周二,他又公开表态,希望种族歧视问题不再存在:“我们见到兄弟姊妹在全世界受苦,无日无之的状况令人感到恶心,必须停止。黑色皮肤的人可能每一天都见到相似情况,好似我们天生有罪,又或者因为肤色而要担心生活。但好似唯有示威、或者为正义呼喊,外界才留意到这些情况,事实我们的行动太少了。”

当时用膝盖压住黑人男疑犯颈部的白人警察萧芬(Derek Chauvin),几经外界示威之后才被捕及被控以谋杀罪,咸美顿说要外界有很多行动才拉人实在令人伤心,他又呼吁外界不要对不公义事件沉默。

This past week has been so dark. I have failed to keep hold of my emotions. I have felt so much anger, sadness and disbelief in what my eyes have seen. I am completely overcome with rage at the sight of such blatant disregard for the lives of our people. The injustice that we are seeing our brothers and sisters face all over the world time and time again is disgusting, and MUST stop. So many people seem surprised, but to us unfortunately, it is not surprising. Those of us who are black, brown or in between, see it everyday and should not have to feel as though we were born guilty, don’t belong, or fear for our lives based on the colour of our skin. Will Smith said it best, racism is not getting worse, it’s being filmed. Only now that the world is so well equipped with cameras has this issue been able to come to light in such a big way. It is only when there are riots and screams for justice that the powers that be cave in and do something, but by then it is far too late and not enough has been done. It took hundreds of thousands of peoples complaints and buildings to burn before officials reacted and decided to arrest Derek Chauvin for murder, and that is sad. Unfortunately, America is not the only place where racism lives and we continue to fail as humans when we cannot stand up for what is right. Please do not sit in silence, no matter the colour of your skin. Black Lives Matter. #blackouttuesday ✊🏽
