Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds pay reparations for getting married on a plantation

https://instagram.com/p/CA3527Ep-ou


  • Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds donated $200,000 to NAACP.

  • They say "it's the least we can do" and admit: "We’ve been teaching our children differently than they way our parents taught us. We want to educate ourselves about other people’s experiences and talk to our kids about everything , all of it… especial our own complicity. We talk about our bias, blindness and our own mistakes. We look back and see so many mistakes which have led us to deeply examine who we are and who we want to become. They’ve led us to huge avenues of education."

  • They are probably referring to that time they got married on a slave plantation.
