In the midst of nationwide protests against systemic racism and police brutality, the Kardashian-Jenner family has remained noticeably quiet. Up until yesterday. Kanye West has since established a fund for the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, and is assisting with the higher education of George Floyd's daughter.
The rapper and fashion designer's $2 million donation will cover legal costs for both Arbery and Taylor's families, and the 529 education plan will fully cover college tuition for Gianna Floyd, George Floyd's 6-year-old daughter.
West's donation will also assist Black-owned businesses that are in crisis, both in his hometown of Chicago and other cities.
Following his donation, West was seen actively protesting in Chicago.
The Weeknd's $500,000 donation was split between Black Lives Matter Global Network, Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp and National Bail Out, a group helping to bail out black mothers and caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Drake also donated $100,000 to the National Bail Out fund after a challenge from singer and fellow Torontonian, Mustafa the Poet, to match his donation.
