Protests increased in large numbers over the weekend due to the horrific death of unarmed black man, George Floyd, in Minneapolis a week ago. This was caused by former Minneapolis PD Officer, Derek Chauvin, and two other cops who were on top of Floyd. Chauvin is currently in a maximum security prison on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges, as many rightfully believe the charges should be more severe. People are still waiting to see when the other cops will be charge as the days pass.

Ciara and Wilson went on to have their own child, which is their daughter, Sienna. Back in January, they announced that another child is on the way. The announcement was made while the two were in Turks & Caicos with Wilson's Instagram caption being "No. 3."

Ciara and Wilson's baby shower occurred in mid-April as they announced that the baby would be a boy. Young Future was also very ecstatic about the announcement as he started running after the gender was revealed.

Big salute to Ciara for using her platform to address social injustices in America such as racism and police brutality. Black people in America should not have to continue to live their lives in fear of leaving their homes everyday worried about if they will make it home alive. Law enforcement needs to be held accountable and the ones who continue to kill them, need to be brought to justice. There should be no more acquittals or lack of arrests.
