Yesterday, the entire world went into an uproar after the grand jury on Michael Brown’s case decided not to indite Darren Wilson. There are many reasons the prosecutor gave for this decision. He said that Wilson was acting in self defense and that social media was to blame for the verdict, just to name a couple. As expected, many people were and still are outraged over the decision. #FergusonDecision and #BlackLivesMatter have been trending on social media for the past 24 hours.
See musicians reaction to the verdict after the jump.
Join the conversation, let us know what you think about this decision, we’d love to hear from you.
The system that instills & protects white supremacy wins again. Humanity loses…No justice. I pray for Mike Brown & his family. So sad.
