Vegas is back with Hip Hop NOW installment, reviewing the documentary Murder Rap. I literally can not keep up with some of these hip hop docs, but props to Vegas for putting me on game. I was a sure fire Biggie fan, and I think it’s always interesting to see the small details that documentaries can add and open up discussion. Show your twitter love @VegasWorldInc and peep his blog hiphopolitic.com.
Let me begin this post by asking “what the hell is going on in the world today?”
Check out the News Story Before Gray’s Death
As many of you are aware, or soon to be, another murder occurred at the hands of the police department. This time it happened in Baltimore City…again. Freddie Gray was chased down by the Baltimore City Police Department, arrested, and died days later with a spinal chord injury. How did that happen, you ask? Footage was released of Gray screaming while they dragged him to the Police patty wagon. We can assume he was already assaulted, but somewhere between the arrest and transportation, he magically ended up in the hospital in a coma. I’m no rocket scientist, nor am I a reporter, activist, or mortician, but my bet is riding on the cops fucking shit up…yet again.
For those of you who have been hiding under a rock, the police across America have been straight up killing Blacks for the past few years. Some cases have been publicly showcased while others have been kept on the hush. You can literally google a slew of names of people who have been killed by the police JUST THIS YEAR. I remember about a year ago, a young man by the name of Tyrone West was murdered in police custody and the case was overlooked…right here in Baltimore City. I would like to salute his family for protesting on what they call “West Wednesdays”, to occupy city hall as they were asking for a full autopsy report on their beloved deceased.
In any event, as people around the U.S. are getting fed up, please keep several things in mind:
The militarization of the Police is underway. What a great way to spark off a one world government!
Do not be deceived. Everything happens for a reason. Did anyone stop to ask how such hatred on Blacks can occur at the helm of America’s first Black President? Just drink that in for a moment…
One day it’ll all make sense. No matter who or what you believe in, your prayer should be for a brighter day…a better world…an end to the fuckery at some cost or another.
What are YOU going to do about injustice? Are we as a people still waiting for the next MLK to come out and spark a change?
I find my rants on this here blog leading me to the same conclusion each time I type. Love is the answer. I am SO proud of each and every activist, every protester, everyone who ever shed a tear at the thought of injustice.
