Proud grandmother Tina Knowles-Lawson, mother to Beyoncé’, posted a clip of her granddaughter showing off a little scientific technique to prove the importance of using soap and frequently washing your hands. “My brilliant granddaughter Blue did this experiment to show how washing your hands fights the virus,” says the caption of the social media post.
The young Carter starts the clip by saying, “This is why it’s important to wash your hands.” Then proceeds to show us how it’s effective.
Coincidentally, Blue Ivy’s mother made a statement of her own about the coronavirus pandemic when she appeared on the One World: Together at Home special over the weekend. She discussed how black Americans are dying at a higher rate from COVID-19 than other people inflicted with the virus.
“Black Americans disproportionately belong to these essential parts of the workforce that do not have the luxury of working from home,” the singer said in the video. “And African American communities at large have been severely affected in this crisis. Those with pre-existing conditions are at an even higher risk. This virus is killing black people at an alarmingly high rate here in America.”
She shared a grim yet insightful report about how it is affecting us. “A recent report from my home city of Houston, Texas, shows that of COVID-19 deaths within Houston city limits, 57% of fatal cases are African Americans,” she pointed out. “Please protect yourselves. We are one family, and we need you. We need your voices, your abilities, and your strength all over this world. I know it’s very hard. Please be patient, stay encouraged, keep the faith, stay positive, and continue to pray for our heroes.”
