"Where are you?" The Rock asks in the video. "Where is our leader? Where are you? Where is our leader at this time? At this time when our country is down on its knees, begging, pleading, hurt, angry, and frustrated. In pain. Begging and pleading with its arms out. Just wanting to be heard. Begging and pleading and praying for change. Where are you? where is our compassionate leader who's gonna step up to our country who's down on its knees and extend a hand and say stand up with me. Stand up with me. Stand up with me because I got you. I got you. I got you. I hear you. I'm listening to you. And you have my word that I'm gonna do everything in my power until my dying day, until my last breath, to do everything I can to create the change that is needed, to normalize equality because Black lives matter. Where are you?"

"It's that same compassionate leader who has to come back and readdress the country to give important context, to give important perspective on the comments that were just made," The Rock continues. "Of course all lives matter. Every single one. All lives matter because we as Americans believe in inclusivity. We believe in acceptance. We believe in human rights. We believe in equality for all. That's what we believe in. So of course all lives matter."

"But in this moment right now, this defining, pivotal, explosive moment where our country is down on its knees," The Rock continues, "the floorboardings of our country are becoming unhinged at this moment, we must say the words: Black lives matter."

Previously, there has been speculation that The Rock himself could run for president, and many people would probably agree he'd make a better president than Donald Trump. What do you think? Watch the full video here.
