“Personally, I have decided to give all my employees a holiday on June 19, in honor of Independence Day, and continue to educate me on the history that has brought us to this present moment,” Swift wrote in caption. “For my family, everything that has been broadcast recently gives us an opportunity to reflect, listen and reproduce any part of our lives that is not loud and brutally anti-racist.
