The old apolitical Taylor Swift can’t come to the phone right now. Why? She’s demanding new leadership to change the ‘deeply ingrained’ racist systems that led to the death of countless Black men and women in America.

There once was a time when Taylor Swift was famously silent on political issues. That time is no more. “Racial injustice has been ingrained deeply into local and state governments, and changes MUST be made there,” Taylor, 30, tweeted on June 9. With this tweet, Taylor added her voice to those celebs calling for systemic change following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and more Black Americans by the hands of the police. “In order for policies to change, we need to elect people who will fight against police brutality and racism of any kind. #BlackLivesMatter.”

Taylor also linked to an article written by Barack Obama’s, “How to Make this Moment the Turning Point For Real Change,” before sharing a link to Vote.org with all her followers. “We need to fight for mail-in voting for the 2020 election,” tweeted Taylor. “No one should have to choose between their health and having their voice heard.”
