Face it people, Black Lives Matter is not going anywhere; especially when men like Philando Castile are being gunned down by policemen on Facebook Live. We are not for here for the complaints against Black Lives Matter or the movement and apparently neither is one Hollywood actress. Halle Berry says she is tired of hearing people complain about Black Lives Matter and is asking, “Well, What Are You Doing About That?”

The Oscar-winning actress [Halle Berry] said, “In my world, I get so tired of people complaining about, ‘Oh black lives matter,’ and they pontificate and pontificate about it, and I say, ‘Well, what are you doing about that? It may not seem significant to you, but that’s how we start. Have you called your local politicians, have you written a letter?’”
Appearing at the Cannes Lions Girls’ Lounge in conversation with founder Shelley Zalis, Berry continued, “When they say they’ve done nothing, I say, ‘Well, don’t talk to me … because you are part of the problem, because you are sitting here spewing negativity and complaining.’”
She added, “I don’t have time for people who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.”
Berry has been taking meetings at Cannes Lions with top tech firms and marketers as she prepares to relaunch her website and social forum titled Hallewood.
The actress was spotted meeting with Snapchat executives Wednesday to discuss Hallewood, which launches next month, and on which she plans to post stories and videos, connect directly with her fans, and start a discussion on a wide variety of topics.
We agree with Halle one hundred and ten percent! If you are tired of hearing and seeing social injustices do something to end the issue. It is so easy to sit back and complain instead of actually giving a damn and putting in the work to bring about positive change. Humanity we have got to do better–MUCH BETTER!
