Don’t assume they aren’t upset because they haven’t expressed issues or traumas in the past. A lot of repressed feelings and memories may be uncovered right now. Receive it with grace empathy and promise to learn or change where need be. 💗 With Love. 📷: @paytonselzer

“[I] just want to take a minute to say how proud I am of my little brother @sevianfrangipane for finding his voice and being out protesting every single day,” she began in a lengthy caption, which reflected on family and love. “Keep your family close right now if you’re lucky enough to have them to rely on. If you are NON-BLACK and: married to a black person, the parent of a black child, or the child of a black parent, or any other interfamilial relationship with a black person, then this is a time to let them talk when they feel like talking,” she continued.

“Listen and listen with love. Don’t assume they aren’t upset because they haven’t expressed issues or traumas in the past,” Halsey urged. “A lot of repressed feelings and memories may be uncovered right now. Receive it with grace empathy and promise to learn or change where need be. With Love,” she concluded. Halsey also has another brother named Dante.

Halsey has been a loud voice in the fight for justice in the death of George Floyd, and others who’ve died at the hand of corrupt police officers. The “Without Me” singer has been photographed aiding injured peaceful protesters while marching in California.

Halsey also recently opened up about being “white passing” as biracial woman in the United States. The singer — whose father is black and mother, an EMT, is white — spoke out in a since-deleted tweet after a Twitter user accused her of “never claiming her black side.”

“I’m white passing. it’s not my place to say ‘we.’ it’s my place to help. i am in pain for my family, but nobody is gonna kill me based on my skin color,” she wrote. “I’ve always been proud of who I am but it’d be an absolute disservice to say ‘we’ when I’m not susceptible to the same violence.”
