Not only has Cannon used Instagram to discuss his views, but he has also used Twitter to speak out against discrimination, prejudice, and racism.

He also released a powerful music video on both Twitter and Instagram, named “I can’t breathe…again!” captioned with #SpokenSundays.

 

Our voices have been quarantined COVID 19-60s to 1619/Jamestown choked me, sold me, shackles hold me tightly, by my neck and I can’t breathe… Again/2020 ain’t no f****** vision, on your Tell-Lie-Vision, of why I’m living as a prejudged Villain!/CNN, FOX news commentating and debating, while I can’t f****** breathe… Again!!!/How many times I gotta say this!/I’m Taking the gloves off Because Racism is the main deadlines that’s contagious!/I just got diagnosed and received a degree in criminology but f*** your education/I don’t want to learn s*** from a nation that’s racist,” sings Cannon.

This is not the first time Cannon has taken to the front lines for the Black Lives Matter movement. He joined the St.Louis protest back in 2016 and he protested the verdict of former police officer Jason Stockely, who was acquitted of killing another black man, Anthony Lamar Smith. Cannon has protested on behalf of the Black Lives Matter movement dating back to 2016, and will not stop until there is reform.
