Keke Palmer asked National Guard members to march with Black Lives Matter protesters on Tuesday.
Strahan, Sara and Keke TV hosts, 26, made their excited plea to National Guard officers during a peaceful protest in Los Angeles.
“Stand with the community, with the community to stop, stop the state repression,” the actress-actor shouted at the men in the powerful video.

While they said they couldn’t leave the intersection to march with the protesters, the men eventually knocked with them instead.
More recently, the act of “taking a knee” has become synonymous with NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand during the US national anthem in the face of police brutality against colors.

The video was retweeted by Get Out director Jordan Peele, along with the caption “Your move, Bone Spurs”.
The pejorative is a reference to US President Donald Trump’s notorious avoidance of active duty in the Vietnam War because of a supposed foot problem.
The nationwide protests are responding to the murder of Minneapolis man George Floyd last month.
In the May 25 incident involving Floyd, arresting officers said he matched the description of a forged suspect and then resisted them when they arrested him. In an accompanying clip, Chauvin was seen tying his knee to the back of Floyd’s neck as Floyd asked him to trust him.
“Please, please, please, I can’t breathe … please, man … my stomach hurts, my hurt hurts, everything hurts … I can’t breathe,” said the African American man, who later died in police custody at a nearby hospital.
Chauvin is facing charges of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in connection with the incident.

Minnesota State and Minnesota Department of Human Rights on Tuesday filed a human rights complaint against the Minneapolis Police Department.
“We know there are deep-seated issues,” said Governor Tim Walz. “I know that because we saw the random nature of erasing George Floyd’s life and humanity. We also saw the community reaction.
“They expected nothing to happen, because nothing happened so many times before.”
In the wake of the grim events, riots began in Minnesota and spread across the country and internationally, with thousands of protesters walking the streets, even in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The events have drawn parallels to the Los Angeles riots in 1992, which broke out after four police officers were acquitted in their trial for the mistreatment of Rodney King, who was caught on camcorder. During the five days of the rio, more than 60 people died, 2,000 plus were injured and damage to destroyed property topped a billion dollars.
