Remember when Beyonce became the voice of reason in America? Well, maybe that's not completely true, but this year Queen Bey has taken on the role of pop culture revolutionary and it fits her rather well.
As one of, if not the most famous woman in the world, she's recently used her considerable platform to speak out against North Carolina's anti-LGBT laws and advocate for women's rights and the Black Lives Matters movement.
Now in the wake of two more senesless killings of black men by the police, the superstar has released an open letter urging us all to "channel our anger and frustration into action."
The letter, entitled "Freedom"--a reference to her anthem on liberation featuring Kendrick Lamar--sees Bey joining fellow pop royal Drake in condemning the deaths of Sterling and Castile, and calling for an end to "the war on people of color and all minorities."
