Mississippi-born rapper David Banner is no stranger to speaking out against the injustices of today.
Recently, Banner appeared on CNN to address the Michael Brown situation and to talk about the plight black youth face in America today.
“White cops do not see value in young black men,” Banner said. “And the reason why a lot of young, black men — not all black men — kill each other is because they don’t see any value either. So many people have bought into this Americanized system, and America historically has always tortured, killed, and enslaved black people. And I have not forgot that.”
