Michael Brown speech

25 Nov, 2014

Rapper Killer Mike delivers a speech about race, humanity, the chaos and turmoil in Ferguson:

I would like to say rest in peace to Michael Brown, who will never get to see the next phase of his life, he said.  I would like to give all thoughts and prayers to all those out there peacefully protesting.

Tonight I got kicked on my ass, when I listened to that prosecutor. You motherfuckers got me today. I knew it was coming. I have a 20-year-old son, I have a 12-year-old son and I’m so afraid for them. He ended his message, referencing El-P, We know you don’t value my skin, and we know you do value [El-P’s], but you know what we’re friends and nothing is gonna devalue that.
