Michael Brown T.I.

Fusion Live interview

20 Aug, 2014

Rapper, T.I. expresses his thoughts on the Brown shooting, the violence in Ferguson, Mo. and the lack of leadership in the African American community.

I think there is a lack of leadership for a few reasons. I think that long ago the systems that had been set in place and excused due to the crack epidemic, the war on drugs that took fathers out of homes that broke up families. There were overwhelming prison sentences given to one substance vs. another version of the same substance. That really broke up a lot of the African American homes.
