This is the most powerful mannequin challenge video you'll ever see

Because, black lives matter, no matter what.

Diamond Reynolds weeps after she recounts the incidents that led to the fatal shooting of her boyfriend Philando Castile by Minneapolis area police during a traffic stop on Wednesday, at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in front of the Governors Mansion in St. Paul, Minnesota, U.S., July 7, 2016.

If you haven't read about the mannequin challenge, then you should read this. It's the small game of sorts where everyone stands still like mannequins, while someone records the video.

We've had mannequin challenge video from all types of people, from school students, to even Hillary Clinton's campaign staff.

But we haven't seen anyone as powerful as this one clearly inspired by the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

The video starts off with a re-enactment of the killing of Philando Castille by a police officer, while he was trying to pull out his driving licence. The voices you hear are from the actual recording of the incident.

The second scene has a policeman trying to grab a woman. The voices are from an actual encounter. The next one shows a gun pointed at a man, and the haunting audio sees the policeman open fire.

The next scene has a young man in a black hoodie, and it is immediately reminiscent of the late Trayvon Martin.

In the next scene, a Malcolm X speech is playing in the background. People are standing, fists in the air. Someone is kneeling, and at the back of his jersey, Kapernick is boldly written.
