Stormzy To Donate £10m To Black Causes Over The Next 10 Years

Arguably the top Grime MC, Stormzy has announced over the next 10 years he will be donating £10m to Organizations, charities and movements that are committed to fighting racial inequality, justice reform and black empowerment within the UK. Stormzy is one of many artists worldwide outraged at the senseless murder of George Floyd sparking them globally to re-evaluate their contributions to Black empowerment. The artist said in a statement

“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”
