Young Jeezy has been very vocal about the unarmed teen, Mike Brown’s murder in Ferguson, Missouri.
Today, Young Jeezy acknowledges that it’s been 13 days since the killing of Mike Brown and writes a touching message on Instagram in response to this.
It's been 13 days since Michael Brown was gunned down. 13 days since he was taken from his friends and love ones that watched him grow to become a young man. In these 13 days I watched a town town become devastated. I watched the ferguson police department and the Mayor James Knowles, single handily build a wall of distrust by not communicating and informing the same citizens and tax payers that voted for and payed there Salary's. I watched my people being herded as if they were cattle, for peacefully protesting In the very community that they work hard to raise there families in. Dear Mr. President, I know there are many things in this world that has our Nation's Capitol attention, such as the Ebola virus, and what is goin In Syria and Irac with Isis. There is a war going on right here on American soil, right here in our back yard; with war there are casualties.
As I look at this young man in this photo that was taken in ferguson, holding a home made molotov cocktail. I can't help but to see the same picture from the civil rights movement in 1964. I ask my self; How did we get back here?! How did we get back to a place where our children take on the roles of soldiers?! As I look at this photo I can't help but to pray. I am a single father and I could not fathom my son having to fight for his civil rights. We as a country must band together and stop this before the violence spreads any further. I have the utmost respect for the city of Ferguson and Saint Louis for standing firm and letting there voices be heard. Michel would be proud! When it's all said and done and the smoke clears we can not let the actions of one individual take a our country back to 1964. #justiceformichaelbrown #saveourchildren
