Bravo addressed issues on the aftermath of the killing of an African-American man, George Floyd during police custody in the United States.

“It’s sad to see what’s going on around the world. As a black man, we know the history of what black people have been through. We never ask for revenge, we ask for equality and respect. That’s it. We give respect to others. Why is it that we are facing this over and over?” Bravo said.

“I just want our brothers and sisters to know that we are powerful and beautiful. And at the end of the day, you look at some of the greats of the world, whether it is Nelson Mandela, Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan we have had leaders who paved the way for us. “Now enough is enough. We just want equality. We don’t want revenge, war. We just want respect.
“We share love and appreciate people for who they are. That’s what is most important.”
