At first Mary J. Blige and now Jigga.
I am sick of these entertainers tap dancing in issues especially dealing with the black community. Either you here for us or shut the hell up. Don’t exploit our issues for your own personal gain coughs Tidal. Then have the nerve to diss us if we don’t buy those records. Sorry but I ain’t sorry. So cut out the I’m woke bullshit lets be real. You only use black folks issues to con the masses to keep your pockets full and living unbothered in your big ass mansions.
According to Fader, one CNN reporter asked Jay what he thinks is the best way to “[stop] police brutality against African-American men,” to which Jay emphasized a need for compassion, trust, and “respect on both sides,” calling out the distrust created by body cameras on police officers.
When you have compassion for what someone goes through—we’re all looking for a short embrace at time. Judgement is the enemy of compassion. When you are able to identify that…we’re all not perfect, we may make mistakes. All of us, every single one of us. When you have compassion for what someone’s going through and their plight, my personal belief, having the camera on someone creates more distrust. When we have an exchange and it has to be recorded, something’s wrong there, something’s broken. A camera can’t fix a relationship between a person that’s hired to protect and serve and society. There has to be a relationship. There has to be respect on both sides.
