The most recent chapter of worldwide protests against institutional racism started after George Floyd, a 46-years-old African-American, was murdered by the police. Ever since then the #BlackLivesMatter or #BLM caught momentum with many celebrities and high profile personalities lending voice to the movement and reflecting on their own privilege and practices.
However, there are many people out there who are ignorant of the casual and institutional racism and claim all is well and #BLM is actually a conspiracy theory. One such man is the US Congressional candidate KW Miller.
Miller, who is running to represent Florida’s 18th Congressional District in the general election of the United States in November, took to Twitter to share his views about #BLM and Beyonce's activism to end racism. In a tweet, he wrote:
"Beyoncé is not even African American. She is faking this for exposure. Her real name is Ann Marie Lastrassi. She is Italian. This is all part of the Soros Deep State agenda for the Black Lives Matter movement. BEYONCÉ YOU ARE ON NOTICE!"
Miller went on and called Queen B's "formation" a satanist song.
The congressional candidate also accused singer Patti LaBella of being an "Illuminati globalist puppet" while referring to her song "Somebody Loves You, Baby".
Miller's statement has caused a social media uproar.
