Killer Mike Posts Passionate Tribute to Mike Brown

The recent execution of Mike Brown at the hands of the Ferguson Police Department in Missouri has created a wave of furious anger and support for the victim’s family in Missouri and beyond. Killer Mike recently took to Instagram to voice his support in an impassioned tribute to Michael Brown and his family. We’ll let it speak for itself…

Read the tribute in full below:

We are human beings. We deserve to be buried by out children not the other way around. No matter how u felt about black people look at this Mother and look at this father and tell me as a human being how u cannot feel empathy for them. How can u not feel sympathy for their pain and loos. These are not “THOTS, niggas/niggers, hoes, Ballers, Divas. These two people are parents. They are humans that produced a child and loved that child and that child was slaughtered like Game and left face down as public spectacle while his blood drained down the street. Look at the pain of this mother, look into her eyes. Look at the Man behind her. Look at that father made helpless and hurt that he cud not defend his seed. Don’t debate. Don’t insert your agenda. Save me the bullshit Black On Black Crime speech and look at these to Noble creatures called humans and look at what govt sanctioned murder has done. It has robbed them of their humanity and replaced it with pain and shame, suffering and hurt. I don’t care if others rioted or why. I don’t care that ball players and Rappers are what they shud be. I care that we as humans care as much about one another more. I care we see past Class, race and culture and honor the humanity that unites our species. Stop talking and LOOK at these PEOPLE. LOOK at these HUMANS and stand with them against a system allows a Human PIG to slaughter their child. Forgive any typos love and respect u all.

Killer Mike isn’t the only rapper to vent his support for the protestors and frustrations with the police. Big Boi, David Banner and 9th Wonder have all been involved on social media.
