Many celebrities have voiced their concerns and support over the recent tragedies in the U.S. regarding the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and five Dallas officers. From social media to public events, musicians, actors and other public figures have made it known that America needs to turn its focus on systemic racism, police brutality and gun control. Mic has gathered a number of prominent artists and actors together in a new video that calls out violence against black Americans, listing the number of ways "you could be killed if you are black in America."

The video features BeyoncĂ©, Rihanna, Chris Rock, Bono, Chance the Rapper, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and others as they detail the ways Sterling, Castile, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Oscar Grant III and many more victims were killed by law enforcement. Or, as musician Maxwell concludes at the end of the video, point out how these people were killed for "doing absolutely nothing."
