Jordan Banjo said the negative voices are louder, to begin with, and opened up on the Black Lives Matter inspired performance by Diversity on Britain’s Got Talent.
Jordan Banjo revealed that all the members of Diversity along with their children, are ‘threatened’ after the performance on Britain’s Got Talent inspired by Black Lives Matter Moment.
“The negative voices in the room always seem the loudest at first, but you look past all of that, and you look past the few select headlines, and genuinely there is so much more positivity than negativity,” Jordan Banjo revealed by speaking out.
“When you have ranged from people in the petrol station shouting across the forecourt how much they loved it, and they watched it with their kids, we have been speaking to people saying ‘My husband’s a teacher or I’m a teacher and we showed it at school’ or ‘it started a conversation in school.”
“You have people like Lewis Hamilton tweeting and it’s sparking a positive conversation, which is what we wanted.”
Jordan continued: “Some stuff gets misconstrued, some people have a different understanding or want to have a different understanding and for us the sentiment of Black Lives Matter – no funding, no organisation, no politics, nothing like that, but as a sentiment, as a sentence itself – if you disagree with that sentence then I don’t really know what to say.”
“But for us, having a summary of 2020 as a performance and leaving out something as huge and important to us as Black Lives Matter seemed like we were trying to avoid it which we don’t want to do.”
