In a recent Instagram interview,
singer-songwriter Ricky Martin talked about his fears of being
targeted by racist police.
Speaking with Enrique Santos of La
Sopa (The Soup), Martin was asked about the Black Lives
Matter protests sparked by the death of George Floyd while in the
custody of the police.
“I am a Latino man, homosexual,
married to an Arab man, living in the United States,” Martin
said. “In other words, I am a threat to these people wherever
you see them.”
Martin and husband Jwan Yosef, an
artist, are raising four children.
Martin said that it had always been
“risky” in the United States for minorities.
“Now we have cameras and we see it.
Now we as citizens turn on the phone, we record the injustice, and
that is why we are angry, because now we are seeing it,” he said.
