Pop superstar Lizzo posted a video to her social media, letting Black people know that it is not their job to educate people on racism.

Lizzo spoke directly to the camera to assure her fans that explaining racism and white privilege is "exhausting," adding that if they do not see it or believe it by now -- they don't want to.

"Protest is not the end of progress, it is the beginning. I wonder what would happen if all the big companies and celebrities who have showed support on social media came out and used their platform to let activists and protesters speak and be seen?," she captioned the video.

"I wonder what would happen if we allowed the outrage to have positive influence in our local government? What would happen if those in power defunded the police & dismantled their racist culture and corrupt power structures? Cities are burning, are you watching? I stand with Minneapolis. I believe in us. Change is gonna come. #blacklivesmatter"

Is she right?
