No-one should be treated differently because of who they are. We believe that at Beano - and that's also what Black Lives Matter stands for.
The Black Lives Matter movement started in America in 2013 after people accused the police of treating black people unfairly compared to how they treat white people.
Now people all over the world are protesting because of this unfair treatment.
What’s going on?
All across America, and around the world, people have been protesting after an African American man named George Floyd died while being arrested by police.
Why are people protesting?
People are protesting because they’re frustrated. Things like this have been happening for a long time and so far, nothing seems to have improved.

Just be your best self. Show the world the right way to behave and don’t treat people differently because of who they are.
