Krs-One Defines America and Police Brutality

Long before the world would ever hear about Trayvon Martin and Tamir Rice and years before the #BlackLivesMatter movement would make its way into mainstream politics, hip hop legend KRS-One was releasing tracks like the bombastic 1993 trackSound of Da Police, slamming police brutality and systematic oppression. And during an election cycle where criminal justice reform and police brutality have been brought to the forefront, KRS said the whole thing is a joke because none of the candidates are truly talking about what he considers to be the number one issue impacting the African American community: This oxymoron called police brutality.

The sadest part of is that Krs-One made a song two decades ago addressing the same issues that the same people are going through today. It seems like if you wait on the other man to make a change, they will just change the way you hang, instead of a tree they just do it in plain sight for the world to see.

These facts are really sad if you are black and poor due to the fact that the total wealth of all the combined wealthy blacks could easily raise the vast majority of the black population out of poverty.
