Stormzy

Stormzy, the United Kingdom rapper who recently joined protesters against the fight agaisnt racism in the UK has pledged £10 Millionto the fight against racism.

According to the rapper, this donation is made by his #Merky company to support charity, organizations, and movements involved in leveling the playing field.

The donation will be done over the next ten years, “We have to fight against the odds of a racist system stacked against us and designed for us to fail from before we are even born,” he said.

“the uncomfortable truth that our country continuously fails to recognise and admit, is that black people in the UK have been at a constant disadvantage in every aspect of life – simply due to the colour of our skin.

“I’m lucky enough to be in the position I’m in and I’ve heard people often dismiss the idea of racism existing in Britain by saying ‘If the country’s so racist how have you become a success?!’ and I reject that with this: I am not the UK’s shining example of what supposedly happens when a black person works hard.

“There are millions of us. We are not far and few. We have to fight against the odds of a racist system stacked against us and designed for us to fail from before we are even born.

“Black people have been playing on an uneven field for far too long and this pledge is a continuation in the fight to finally try and even it.”

Stormzy has been doing a lot to help people of color in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. He announced a scholarship program for brilliant black student in collaboration with Cambridge University a couple of years ago.
