Just last night, Niall tweeted, 'Let’s protest safely people. look out for each other.'

'It’s time to really educate the younger generations that there should not be hatred based on the colour of the next persons skin.'

'Only love.I go to bed tonight thinking of all my friends in America and hope they are safe'

In another tweet today, Niall told his followers about a recent encounter he had with his neighbour, a young black man.

He said, 'we had the most amazing conversation about what’s going on in the world.'

'He himself grew up in an area where racism was rampant, had many sad dealings with brutal law enforcement.'

The Irish singer continued, 'But his attitude is one that I had goosebumps listening to.'

'He said he always tries to look forward, he wants to educate people, he doesn’t want people rioting in the streets for him.'

'He wants people to protest peacefully and as I said ‘educate people’. Protest safely for our friends,' Niall finished.

George Floyd

The hundreds of protests across America were sparked by the death of George Floyd.

Mr. Floyd died on 25th May after Police Officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for over eight minutes.

He was repeatedly heard by bystanders telling officers he couldn't breathe.

He tweeted, 'Racism has been rampant for hundreds of years, it’s just that in this century people have camera phones to video it.'

'It’s absolutely disgusting that you get mistreated because of the colour of your skin.'
