Mariah Carey is reminding her fans to continue to fight against racial injustice and police brutality by using her platform to demand justice for Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black EMT who was fatally shot by Louisville police officers back in March.

The “Always Be My Baby” singer took to Instagram to share a photo of herself wearing a black T-shirt that read, “ARREST THE COPS WHO KILLED BREONNA TAYLOR” on the front and “SAY HER NAME” written above a photo of Taylor on the back.

“It’s been six months since #BreonnaTaylor, a frontline medical worker was killed by police in a ‘no-knock’ raid targeting the WRONG apartment,” she captioned the post.

She continued, “Medical workers like her save lives every day — but police violence claims Black lives at nearly the same pace. Her killing hurts especially bad right now. Now, more than ever we have to stay connected and vigilant. Follow @wearepushblack to read more about her story and for daily doses of inspiring, #BlackHistory stories to keep us going.”

This isn’t the first time the “We Belong Together” songstress has spoken up about social justice issues pertaining to the Black community. Back in June, she postponed celebrating her debut album’s 30th anniversary to shift her fans’ attention to the Black Lives Matter movement, which erupted following the Memorial Day killing of George Floyd.

“Thank you lambily, for all the celebratory messages for today’s #MC30 anniversary!” she wrote over the image of her album’s cover art. “I had planned to share some surprises and rarities with you, but prefer to postpone them to a later date.

“As we continue to fight for equality and justice within our broken systems, I thank you for using your platforms to educate, inform and invoke change. Together let’s bring on a change. Love, Mariah,” she concluded.

The singer also retweeted the official GoFundMe for Taylor’s family and directed her fans and followers to text “FLOYD” to 55156 to demand justice for him after he was killed at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers.
