Kanye West is in the protest with other Americans by helping to assist the families and legal teams fighting for Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. He is not only helping in that manner, but also the future of George Floyd’s family.
The rapper’s donated $2 million, so far, to the cause and set up a 529 college savings fund to fully cover tuition for Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter, Gianna. He’s also made a separate donation to cover the legal costs for the Arbery and Taylor families.
Along with that, Kanye’s donating to several black-owned businesses in his hometown of Chicago and nationwide that have been in crisis and impacted by the unrest in the U.S.
Arbery was shot and killed in Georgia in February after being chased by 3 men who allegedly believed he fit the description of a burglary suspect in the area.
Taylor — who was an emergency medical worker — was shot and killed by Louisville cops in her own home in a “no-knock warrant” case, in which cops allegedly busted in without warning.
