The cast and creators of Empire are putting their support behind Hillary Clinton in the upcoming presidential election, voicing their endorsements in a new video.
The show’s stars Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, Bryshere Gray, Trai Byers, Grace Byers, Gabourey Sidibe, Tasha Smith and show creator Lee Daniels star in the minute-long video, running through their reasons for endorsing the Democratic candidate.
“What will I tell my son? What will you tell your daughter? What will we tell the future generation?” asks Henson before Gray goes on to list the names of unarmed black men and women killed brutally and unnecessarily. The cast go on to promote Clinton’s stance on racial equality, women’s rights, gun control, healthcare and more, saying she is the woman to lead our country forward.
