And even if you’re like me, an ocean away from where this is happening, or you’re afraid of being out in the frontlines of protest, don’t hesitate to show that you care.

And until we own some shit, i’mma call it for like it is. How you gon’ be a man and we starvin!? (…) We thugs and niggas ‘til we set this shit right. Trust me when I tell you that shit.
