Lizzo is one of the millions of people across the globe stunned by the shocking modern-day lynching of unarmed Black jogger, Ahmaud Arbery -- and says the justice system actively supports white supremacy.

"I've said this before and I'll say it again, we always talk about how our system is broken, but it's not broken. The system is actually working in favor of white supremacy," Lizzo's says in the video shared to her Instagram.

"If anything we need to break this system, so that we can build a new system that is founded on equality. We have a long way to go before that happens and these tragedies that continue to happen—we have to make noise. Let's put justice in our own hands."

"You know you grow up, and you go to school for a little bit, and they teach you that there's one America, and then you learn that there's another America. And I've been heartbroken about it for most of my life. This is an outright, slow genocide since the 1860's."

She continued, "That is the only way that the system breaks is that the people that the system is working for, stop functioning in it, and the system malfunctions because it no longer serves white supremacy," adding, "I would love to see white male allyship. Yes the system works supremely in your favor, but compassion, empathy, have a heart. Do something for somebody else. Step outside of your comfort zone and save a life."

Is she right?
