Halle Berry doesn’t want to hear you complain about social injustice if you’re not doing anything to change the problem. Thus the reason she recently made this comment:“I don’t have time for people who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.”
While at the Cannes Lion Girls’ Lounge in conversation with founder Shelley Zalis, Ms. Berry gave her candid remarks about #BlackLivesMatter and those who constantly voice their concerns, but never put in the work to ensure effective change. “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?’” The Oscar-winning actress may have a point. She 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.’”
So what is Halle doing? The “BAPS” star has been actively meeting with folks in the tech industry as she prepares to launch her website/social forum Hallewood. The site launches next month and will allow Berry to post stories, connect with her fans and have discussion about a myriad of topics … one of which will most likely be #BlackLivesMatter.
