In an interview with Billboard, pop star Lady Gaga said that she believes that every American is poisoned by white supremacy the moment they are born on U.S. soil.

The singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, says she is working hard to expunge her own white supremacist ways by "learning and unlearning things" she was taught throughout her life.

"When you're born in this country, we all drink the poison that is white supremacy," she said. "Social justice is not just a literacy, it's a lifestyle."

In addition to professing her support for Black Lives Matter, the singer also spoke out in support of face masks to combat COVID-19.

"It's really wrong for us to go, ‘I'm uncomfortable because I can't breathe.' Give me a break. Show some respect for the people who are there for us when we dial 911," she said.
