It's a shame that in 2014 some people still have the mentality that this is the year 1968. As we watch the news from Missouri I am saddened I'm confused and I am in disbelief that in the United States of America after all that the black man and woman have been through that it's okay as a people to treat us as animals in second-class citizens ! If this was any of the community would the police be pointing shotguns at the children who are just trying to be heard and Ifollow in the footsteps of the civil rights movement God help us all!
The Bad Boy Records founder also urged followers who agreed with him to create their own videos to send to the White House. Diddy is just the latest artist to weigh in on the unrest following the fatal police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. St. Louis-based emcee Nelly joined protesters in Ferguson Monday night, while rapper J. Cole arrived in the town over the weekend. J Cole also paid tribute to Michael Brown on his song “Be Free.”
On Monday, President Obama promised to send U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson to assess the situation there. The Justice Department is also launching an investigation into the case.
