My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way has spoken out in support of ongoing protests in cities across America against racial inequality in the wake of the killing of unarmed black man George Floyd.

"I could start by saying I have needed time to think, to explain away the days of silence," Way wrote on Instagram. "I could say there are no words, or that I don't know how to begin. But not knowing where to begin is a bad way to begin, and days of thinking are a luxury."

In the post, Way vowed to further educate himself and asked his fans to keep discussing internally the ways they can affect change. He also asked followers to visit the NAACP Legal Defense Fund website for more information or to contribute to the cause.

"These are privileges not everyone benefits from. There is not much time to think, surely not days, when the knee is on your neck. When the bullets penetrate, or the tear gas finds its mark. When generations of enabled systematic oppression, and its guardians, work against you. When opportunities are not afforded to you because of who you were born to be," he stated.
