Artist and activist Lizzo has been using her platform to encourage her fans to vote for months, and to honor election day, the Grammy Award-winning singer strips down to nothing. It isn’t uncommon for Lizzo to pose in barely-there attire on her social media page as she gives her admirers a look at her figure, but this time she decided to slightly cover herself with America’s flag.
“When I think of this country I don’t think of its laws I think of its people.
I think about how we were raised to be patriotic of violence, propaganda & war.
I think about how this country is owned by the oppressor and how the oppressed are locked in a valley of capitalism.
But I also think of the young people who refuse to be spoon fed mistruths. I think of the elders who bucked against hateful prejudices even when it felt impossible….
Because of you, I’m still hopeful.
I believe in a country that teaches the true history so we can better understand where we live and how we can do better.
I believe in a country that listens to the cries of the protester and doesn’t politicize death.
I believe in restoration of this beautiful land and respecting the communities of people who owned America before colonizers renamed it.
I believe in fairness, equality, a complete removal of religion in places where it does not belong. Let religion live in the churches and places of worship… the quiet prayer rooms, the joyful congregations.. and out of Congress.
I believe in so much, and if I believe it one day I can see it. It may not be tomorrow it may not be today, but it will be one day if we stay activated.
We the people, ALL the people, deserve it.
Today’s the last day to vote. Stay in line, stay determined and thank YOU for voting.” reads the caption

We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40 pic.twitter.com/FFJ8tlblBi— Christopher D.

How lovely that you can jet your family and friends to a private island to "pretend things are normal."— Michael J. Stern (@MichaelJStern1) October 28, 2020
We'd love to do that to.
Thanks for pointing out your ability to extract yourself from the misery the rest of the world is experiencing.
