Grandes protestas contra el racismo policial se han visto en Estados Unidos luego de asesinato del George Floyd a manos de un policía en Minneapolis. Tanto civiles como celebridades, han salido a las calles a manifestarse y visibilizar los violentos crímenes contra los afroamericanos en el país.

Las protestas también han llegado a las redes sociales, por ejemplo, este martes se vivió el “black out tuesday” (martes negro) e incluso, otras estrellas de la pantalla grande han subido conmovedoras publicaciones como es el caso de la actriz Katherine Heigl.

Reconocida por su papel en la serie de médicos Grey’s Anatomy, Heigl en 2012, junto a su pareja Josh Kelley, adoptó a su hija Adalaide Marie Hope Kelley, descendiente afroamericana, que hoy tiene siete años.

Por esta razón, la actriz subió una emotiva publicación en Instagram para intentar desahogarse sobre las injusticias raciales que se viven en su país.

“Normalmente no uso mi plataforma o las redes sociales para decir mucho sobre el estado de nuestro país. Guardo la mayoría de esos pensamientos para mí misma. Actúo en silencio y detrás de escena. Dejo que aquellos con mucha más experiencia, educación y elocuencia sean las voces para el cambio. Pero no puedo dormir. Y cuando lo hago me despierto con un solo pensamiento en mi cabeza. ¿Cómo le diré a Adalaide?“, comenzó escribiendo Heigl, refiriéndose a la muerte de Floyd.

Page 1. I’ve debated posting this. I don’t typically use my platform or social media to say much when it comes to the state of our country. I keep most of those thoughts to myself. I act quietly and behind the scenes. I let those with far more experience, education and eloquence be the voices for change. But I can’t sleep. And when I do I wake with a single thought in my head. How will I tell Adalaide? How will I explain the unexplainable? How can I protect her? How can I break a piece of her beautiful divine spirit to do so? I can’t sleep. I lay in my bed in the dark and weep for every mother of a beautiful divine black child who has to extinguish a piece of their beloved baby’s spirit to try to keep them alive in a country that has too many sleeping soundly. Eyes squeezed shut. Images and cries and pleas and pain banished from their minds. White bubbles strong and intact. But I lay awake. Finally. Painfully. My white bubble though always with me now begins to bleed. Because I have a black daughter. Because I have a Korean daughter. Because I have a Korean sister and nephews and niece. It has taken me far too long to truly internalize the reality of the abhorrent, evil despicable truth of racism. My whiteness kept it from me. My upbringing of inclusivity, love and compassion seemed normal. I thought the majority felt like I did. I couldn’t imagine a brain that saw the color of someone’s skin as anything but that. Just a color. I was naive. I was childish. I was blind to those who treated my own sister differently because of the shape of her beautiful almond eyes. Or her thick gorgeous hair. Or her golden skin. I was a child. For too long. And now I weep. Because what should have changed by now, by then, forever ago still is. Hopelessness is seeping in. Fear that there is nothing I can do, like a slow moving poison, is spreading through me. Then I look at my daughters. My sister. My nephews and niece. George Floyd. Ahmaud Arbery. Breonna Taylor. The hundreds, thousands millions more we haven’t even heard about. I look and the fear turns to something else. The sorrow warms and then bursts into flames of rage.

¿Cómo voy a explicar lo inexplicable? ¿Cómo puedo protegerla? ¿Cómo puedo romper un pedazo de su hermoso espíritu divino para hacerlo? No puedo dormir. Me acuesto en la cama en la oscuridad y lloro por cada madre de un hermoso y divino niño negro que tiene que extinguir un pedazo del espíritu de su amado bebé para tratar de mantenerlos con vida en un país que duerme profundamente”, agregó.

Heigl también adoptó a su otra hija Nancy Leigh Mi-Eun Kelley, que tiene descendencia coreana y en 2017 quedó embarazada de su tercer y último hijo, Josh Bishop Kelley.

“Miro a mis hijas. Mi hermana. Mis sobrinos y sobrina. George Floyd. Ahmaud Arbery. Breonna Taylor. Los cientos, miles de millones más que ni siquiera hemos escuchado. Miro y el miedo se convierte en otra cosa. El dolor se calienta y luego estalla en llamas de ira“, relató en la pubicación.

Y para concluir escribió: “Lo que quiero es que todos estén tan asustados por las consecuencias del oficial Chauvin que tengan miedo de respirar en la dirección de un hombre, mujer o niño negro. Y mucho menos tratar de lastimarlos. Quiero que tiemblen en sus camas en noche por temor a que ellos también pudieran terminar como Chauvin. Quiero que sea un ejemplo de lo que le sucede a un racista en este país”.

Page 2. Rage. I’m not sure what most think justice looks like but right now, to me, it looks like a hard, ugly life in prison for Officer Chauvin and the others who just stood there. On their phone. I want them to pay. I want that payment to be harsh. I want it to be a painful, irrevocable consequence for their evil acts and behaviors and for those consequences to scare the shit out of every other racist still clinging to their small, stupid minded hate. The hate that soothes their weakness and cowardice. The hate that makes them feel powerful and in charge. The hate that distracts them from their meager-ness. There may have been a time when I cared to try to change the mind of a racist. To show them through example and just the right words they are wrong. I don’t care anymore. For their hearts or minds or souls. I don’t care if they die with their ugliness stamped all over them. They can take this shit to their maker and he can deal with them. What I want is for them all to be so scared by Officer Chauvin’s consequences that they are afraid to breathe in the direction of a black man, woman or child. Let alone try to hurt them. I want them to shake in their beds at night for fear that they too could end up like Chauvin. I want him to be an example of what happens to a racist in this country. I am aware that this rage is not very Christian of me. Or is it? Jesus got pretty damn mad at the temple. God brought the floods, the famine, the locust and the pillars of salt. Perhaps rage is part of the divine. Perhaps the heavens want our rage right now. Perhaps our rage is theirs. All I know is that I want it to end. Today. Forever. Whatever it takes.
