1. its a fact that blacks are mistreated by the legal system. I didn't bring race into this. race is involved in how u ppl perceive right and wrong. race influences legal decisions. that is a fact. It would be intellectually dishonest of me not to recognize how race plays a role in how u ppl view these types of situations.
2. law is written and amended by humans. it is not a fact. laws are guidelines that can be manipulated, applied, and ignored. it happens all the time.
3. he called out to dude and then shot him. dude didn't just turn and threaten him directly based on the shooter own account. he initiated that.
4. I dont defend criminals for the sake of their blackness. and u r being emotional. I never tried to imply that the suspect was innocent. that your emotions projecting onto my actual statements.
my stance is this: I'm not gonna pump my fists in the air like this is some moral victory for innocent law abiding citizens nor am I going to have a pity party for the suspect.
I'm in the middle. citizens shouldn't be turning robberies into shootings. criminals shouldn't be pulling guns on innocents.
Right then why didnt mention pop or rocks act then? Drake and Nikki (though not as much) still make hiphop music regardless of content or what I think of it.
“Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey,” said Lorde. ”They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn’t relate to me—or anyone that I knew. I began thinking, ‘How are we listening to this? It’s completely irrelevant’.”
