Beyoncé’s Black Panther Party inspired Super Bowl performance and critique of police brutality in her “Formation” video garnered a slew of backlash from people who weren’t here for Bey’s “Pro-Black agenda.” One person standing by the Lemonade singer’s side despite the controversy is her mother Tina Lawson.

Lawson took to Instagram beaming with pride as her daughter presented NFL star-turned-social activist Colin Kaepernick Sports Illustrated’s Muhammad Ali Legacy Award last night (Dec. 05).

Wow what a powerful statement !! Thank you Beyonce for being brave enough to say what many of us are thinking!!! Translates to me as : when you protest injustice and racism & put a spotlight on it that means that you are being “ Un American “or disrespectful to our country ! What does that say about this Country? Our current administration would have you believe that the protest was protesting the flag and the national anthem !! Wrong!!! There is no mention of the purpose of his protest which was the killing of innocent unarmed black men and racism in this country. The constant smokeScreens and deflecting that’s done every day is laughable! That is the game that they play with us every day about everything. They would have you believe that this is about people disrespecting the flag or disrespecting our soldiers. What bullshit? It’s very interesting that in Beyoncé speech She makes it crystal clear that Mr. Kaepernick nor anyone else was disrespecting our soldiers or All police officers, who protect us every day and we have the utmost respect for. Or the Flag. Its interesting that I don’t see that printed as often as the other part which i have read over and over. I just have to say that in my opinion if you are a person that is a good human being and devoid of racism but that when you hear or see injustices being done to someone else and you don’t stand up and say something about it, when you can conveniently look the other way , you are complicit in this behavior and are almost as guilty as the person perpetrating it! I don’t expect everyone to get it!! I do expect that this is going to piss a lot of people off and if it does you are exactly who I’m talking about if the shoe fits wear it! My prayer is that this will inspire at least one person to please stand up today to injustice !!! ❤️

Uploading an image of Bey handing Kaepernick his trophy, Lawson wrote, “Thank you Beyonce for being brave enough to say what many of us are thinking…. Translates to me as: when you protest injustice and racism & put a spotlight on it that means you are being “Un American” or disrespectful to our country! What does that say about this Country?”

Dishing on the Trump administration’s role in aiding in the division over issues like police brutality and Kaepernick’s kneeling protest, Lawson continued, “Our current administration would have you believe that the protest was protesting the flag and the nation anthem… Wrong!!! There is no mention of the purpose of his protest which was the killing of innocent unarmed black men and racism in this country. The constant smokeScreens and deflecting that’s done every day is laughable! That is the game that they play with us every day about everything.”

Lawson continued by calling out those who refuse to speak out against injustice in America. “If you are a person that is a good human being and devoid of racism but that when you hear or see injustices being done to someone else and you don’t stand up and say something about it, when you can conveniently look the other way, you are complicit in this behavior and are almost as guilty as the person perpetrating it.”

Preach, Ms Tina!
