"I have to disagree with you. 'Black Lives Matter' doesn't mean other lives don't matter. Black lives matter speaks to racism
and the disproportionate risk that Black people face in our law enforcement and justice system," posted Bezos.
Bezos said "he doesn't have to worry that his son might be choked to death while being detained one day. I want you to know I support this movement that we see happening all around us and my stance won't change".
In a blog post this week, Amazon said it stands in solidarity with Black employees, customers and partners.
"As part of that effort, Amazon will donate a total of $10 million to organizations that are working to bring about social justice and improve the lives of Black and African Americans," said the company.
Around 4,000 people across the United States
have been arrested during the massive protests over the death of African-American man George Floyd last month. A bystander video recording showed a policeman kneeling on Floyd's neck for at least eight minutes, while Floyd kept saying that he could not breathe. A total of four police officers involved in the arrest have been fired.
Many other celebrities from Hollywood have spoken about racial discrimination in America following the death of an African-American man George Floyd.
Protests have erupted in at least 30 US cities over Floyd's death in police custody in Minnesota. Minnesota police have also made dozens of arrests in the Minneapolis area.
