Below is very graphic video of yet another unarmed African-American being gunned down in the state of Missouri.
What is taking place today, in Ferguson, Missouri our generation has never seen. We have only read about actions such as these! The riots, the vandalism, the genuine anger, it puts your entire, mind body and soul to a compete stand still. It lets you realize who we are as African-Americans, and the power that our people have as well as what our people are still fighting for.
To be able to witness these people riot and protest against such actions and to feel what is happening as if we are right there is imensely powerful and life changing.
Our youth are dying on these streets not because of what they do, but it seems to be because of who they are.
These events are a reoccurring nightmare, the supposed protectors of our communities are killing future leaders of our country!
Why is it that it is OUR youth being killed on these streets. It is truly and simply ridiculous! It is so important now more than ever that we as the youth and as the future and as young African-Americans realize the voice that we have and make it priority number one to be heard. It is so important that we fight and take a stand together as one in efforts to put an end to this horrific cycle.
As a young African-American, I truly appreciate those who do intact have a much greater voice who have used it during these trying times, such as J. Cole, Nelly, John Legend, T.I and so, so many more other who are helping to unify our people in such movements throughout not only ferguson, but all over the world!
We will forever remember Emmett Till, Sean Bell, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Mike Brown!

I don’t think anyone seen this picture coming but in ways it is very powerful. Fredo Santana member of the GBE, met with Minister Farrakhan today. In ways it speaks volumes because it shows the older generations still care about the youth. Hopefully this pic could be more than just a pic. Maybe these two could come together to help the streets of Chicago.
Mike Brown’s autopsy report shows; he was shot at least six times. He was shot twice in his head and four times in his right arm. Due to Mike Brown not having gunpowder on his clothes, it is viewed to be that he was shot from long range. Even though Mike Brown was shot six times, only three bullets were recovered from his body. As shown on the diagram above, Mike Brown was left with multiple marks on his body. Forensic examiner for the State of New York said, “ you’re not supposed to shoot that many times”. More and more clues are being brought out everyday. Pray for Mike Brown’s family and the community of Ferguson.
J Cole recently dropping “Be Free” as a heart felt tribute to Mike Brown. Expressing his feeling on the song and shining light on this terrible situation. But J Cole went beyond just music and took a visit to Ferguson and the crime scene, where Mike Brown was shot and killed at. Hats off to J Cole for being active and taking a step forward in showing support toward the community of Ferguson, during this difficult time.
