Hollywood pop star Katy Perry joined the Black-Eyed Peas and Ne-Yo to team up for the left-wing "Rock the Vote" campaign calling for young people to fight “systemic racism” and “white supremacy,” by casting their votes in November.

The online voter registration drive called Democracy Summer 2020 was hosted by Actresses Rosario Dawson and Logan Browning and featured appearances from leading Democratic politicians.

One of Rock the Vote's partners included Michelle Obama’s "When We All Vote," which also aims to drive young people to the ballot box in November.

As Neon Nettle reported in April, "When We All Vote" also pushes to expand vote-by-mail options.

Also pushing Thursday’s drive was Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, which tells young people that voting would give them the power to tell America to “gets its knee off of our necks.”

Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) also made an appearance urging young voters to continue protesting in the streets.

Warren urged young voters to combat the country’s “legacy of racism, discrimination, and oppression.”

Warren, who falsely claimed for many years to be Native American, urged voters to stand against “racist, hateful, bigoted public policies” of Trump.

But many of the stars appeared to have their talking points pre-prepared, frequently using phrases like “systemic racism” and “shocking the system."

Katy Perry performed at the event and later urged voters in an Instagram post to vote against “systemic racism” in November.

Another message they repeatedly hammered home was that 4 million new voters would have turned 18, thus being able to cast their ballots in November.

Host Logan Browning spoke about “lives lost to police brutality and white supremacy."

Popstar Ne-Yo called on young voters “to be the voice of the future you want to see."

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) called the November “the most important election of our lifetimes.”
