Kanye West has joined the nationwide call for justice in a major way.

He just donated $2 million to the legal teams of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. The producer also set up a 529 college savings fund for Floyd's daughter Gianna.  

But Ye isn't just cutting checks. He joined a #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd protest in the Southside of his hometown Chicago on Thursday. There's a bunch of videos floating around that show his participation.

Floyd died last week after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. Arbery was shot and killed by two white men, a father and son, as he jogged in Glynn County, Georgia. Taylor was killed in March after three plainclothes officers stormed into her appartment on a no-knock warrant looking for drugs. No drugs were ever found. 

What do you think about Ye's involvement in the protest and the money he's given?
