On Wednesday, Emma Watson, 30, expressed support in fight against social injustice and racism, after the death of an African-American, George Floyd in the United States. The Little Women actor shared her thoughts in a written statement on Instagram, where she opened up about the discrimination, one race's supremacy, and the ways she is trying to deal with the situation.

"There is so much racism, both in our past and present, that is acknowledged nor accounted for. White supremacy is one of the systems of hierarchy and dominance, of exploitation and oppression, that is tightly scheduled into society. As a white person, I have benefited from this," the actor wrote.
