Why Police and Black Community Relationships Don't Work - Jasiri X

Here I am, an artist that uses Hip-Hop to uplift my community, and I'm the one they have a problem with? I'm sure they are upset at the fact that I use my music to speak about issues of injustice like the police killing of Oscar Grant, the brutal beating of Jordan Miles, the unconstitutional racial profiling policy called Stop and Frisk, and the fact that a Black person is killed every 36 hours by police, security guards, or people posing as neighborhood watch like George Zimmerman. Instead of protecting my rights to speak truth to the people of Dayton, they would rather silence me, as if that will make the problem go away.
