Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have donated a handsome $150,000 to the Justice or Else! March—otherwise known as the Million Man March—which will commence at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on October 10.
Although the march occurs annually, this year marks its 20th anniversary, and Minister Louis Farrakhan hopes to raise $1.8 million to fund the event and make some noise for racial justice.
Per the Justice or Else! website:
Justice is the birthright of every human being. Justice is a prerequisite to life. We cannot live without justice and where there is no justice there is no peace. Justice is one of the eternal principals that the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth has decreed that every creature should have the freedom to be what God created it to be. Freedom, Justice and Equality are not conferred on us by the Constitution, but the Creator confers Freedom, Justice and Equality on every human being.
The widespread death, rising racism, mob attacks and police brutality on Blacks coupled with economic deprivation and stark poverty, requires that something must be immediately done to address and correct the condition.
The failure of the U.S. Government to give justice to its former slaves require that we present ourselves in unity to make the demand for Justice or Else!
Farrakhan reportedly thanked the Smiths for their hefty donation at a Justice or Else! rally in Philadelphia earlier this month.
