    Rihanna, Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and a host of others have contributed to Mic's "23 Ways You Could Be Killed In America If You're Black." The stars list 23 different ways black Americans have been killed in the last couple years. "The video supports the We Are Here Movement and follows the viral murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of white police officers," reports Rolling Stone.

    The host of celebrities, which also includes Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Queen Latifah, Pink, Bono, Jennifer Hudson, Rosario Dawson, and others each take the time to read one of 23 different ways black Americans have been killed, including "failing to signal a lane change," and "riding in your girlfriend's car with a child in the back."

    At the end of the video, Rihanna and Maxwell switch off saying, "In other words, just for being black in America and doing absolutely nothing, these everyday actions can be seen as not servile enough."
