Black Lives Matter: Lewis Hamilton wears Breonna Taylor t-shirt as he calls for justice at Formula One race

Formula one icon, Lewis Hamilton on Sunday September 13, brought the ‘Black Lives matter’ movement to the forefront of Formula One as he wore a t-shirt of Breonna Taylor, a young woman who was tragically killed by police.

 

Breonna, 26, died in March after being shot by police officers several times when they entered her apartment in Louisville, Kentucky.

 

On Sunday, Hamilton, 35, won the Formula One Tuscan GP but acknowledged the Black Lives Matter movement before celebrating his win.

As he collected his trophy from the podium, Lewis made the black power salute wearing a t-shirt which read: ‘Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor,’ on the front and had a portrait of the young woman’s face on the back with the slogan ‘Say Her Name’.

He also ‘took the knee’before the race began.

In an Instagram post, Hamilton further spoke about Taylor’s murder; ‘It’s been 6 months since Breonna Taylor was murdered by policemen, in her own home. Still no justice has been served. We won’t stay silent. #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor.’  he wrote
