Mistah F.A.B. – 6 Shots (Audio)
West Coast rapper Mistah F.A.B. becomes the next in the line of rappers who have spoken out on the police shootings going on in the black community, with his new track 6 Shots. Read his statement below:
“The police put the most radical and reckless officers in the most dangerous neighborhoods. If you’re afraid, if you’re intimidated of black people, why are you patrolling those neighborhoods to begin with? Police forces need to invest more in prevention. And they need to be held accountable for their actions as well. We have to stop the ‘bro-code’ of police and courts standing in solidarity with each other just because they wear the same badge. What makes you any different than someone who murdered unjustly if you stand in solidarity with that person?
“As civilians, we need to teach our ourselves our rights and how to react in escalating situations with the police. We’ve got to stand in solidarity with each other by participating in community work, philtanthropy, and we’ve gotta get on the front lines. We can’t jump into a healing process right away because to ask ‘How can we heal?’ is to be forgiving. Although we have fought for the dignities and rights through the Civil Rights Movement, how much farther have we come since we’ve been dragged to this country?”
