Justice For Mike Brown.

Nelly, a Missouri native, came under fire for stating that Ferguson residents reacted prematurely following the shooting death of Mike Brown. Today, he appeared on CNN to clarify his statements and traveled to the area to join the protest, emphasizing that action must be taken in a more appropriate way.

    He is serving as a agent.. he doesnt live in the hood and is far removed from the issues of blacks

    • marty mcfly

      How you know Cole aint a agent? Cole has more of a police or federal agent background then Nelly does. Of course Nelly dont live in the hood, they dont build million dollar homes in the projects. People pick and choose which rappers to like. It aint about the rappers its about the issue at hand.

  • Qu’rel Judson

    Now he wanna come out there because J. Cole showed him up in his own city!!

  • ERIQ D.

    Nelly so wack.

  • FactsOnly

    These people fail to realize that this is being done on purpose to shift the peoples attention from whats really going on in the world. This shyt is all planned. Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Sean Bell, Eric Garner, etc, etc. They tryin/want to cause racial tension. This is all of a bigger plan. People need to wake up. There is a war going on and the crazy thing about it is people dont even know.

    • Michael Ibbett

      Yeah I feel like people on both sides are constantly creating race war propaganda.

    • yiiikes

      So the mexicans against the blacks? Cause Zimmerman wasn’t white.

    • Word

      So since you must know, please enlighten us on what the war is? Ppl like you always scream this propagandist bullshit but never back it up with facts. Please tell us what we’re missing since we’re so stupid. What’s the master plan? Better yet, who’s “they” that are supposedly pulling the strings? And if you say the Illuminati please hang ya self.

  • poetic assasin

    It’s funny how we always complain that artists don’t do more things like this, and when they do we say it’s only for publicity/ it’s phony.

    • Sheeesh

      Lose lose situation… u just gotta do what you feel is right. People gonna hate anyway

  • AMAZINACE

    Didn’t last Week This nigga was Dissing Floyd and his Diploma over a plastic Bitch ? now he Al Sharpton ?

  • el jim chapo guzman

    Black people need to stop. Because that little boy was wrong for trying to stick the place up. The cop did what he had to do.

    • IgnorantWisdom

      Fucking troll, FOH disrepectful piece of shit

      • el jim chapo guzman

        Let me ask you a question what if the cop was black?

        • IgnorantWisdom

          So are u saying that doesnt exits racist black ppl? And btw the cop didnt know tha he was a suspect

          • el jim chapo guzman

            answer the fuckin question what if the cop was black then what.

          • IgnorantWisdom

            Answer me first then if the cop didnt know he was a suspect why did u say he did what he had to do?

          • el jim chapo guzman

            Because he was wearing the exact same items that matched the description by the store owner. son dies, mama lies, we’ve seen this time and time again. you think they’d mix it up a bit, i’m tired of hearing it. Now answer my question what if the cop was black.

          • IgnorantWisdom

            Dumb fuck I already ansewerd this, there is ppl who racially profile ppl of their own race so move on

          • el jim chapo guzman

            I don’t think this guy Michael Brown won’t get a good verdict same like GZ/TM case. Also I see too much racist comments on this comment board. Racism is alive and well. Always people bring Chicago, Detroit and other cities where crime is bit higher. Yet people have to realize that there is no solution for that as well. I feel so bad for supporter’s of Michael Brown, his family, friends and including myself. If cops is taking time in releasing the information means that cops are covering up with something. I am 100 % sure about Tiffany’s testimony would prove the guilty of cop. If they take time then protest will continue and will be held in many cities. If this guy would have been white, this entire comment section would be way different.I don’t believe in Bob McCallouh.Blacks in America = poor innocents in Palestine = Yazidian.. In Georgia, a white kid burned and then the kid is in medically induced coma all due to 50 dollar worth of Meth – this shows how brutal cops have become. Geez when it is going to stop.Discrimination of blacks:If a black person and white person applies for a position (both of them have 100 % similar qualification and experience), do you know know white person gets selected and black person wont be selected. Even for searches’ as well, white sounding names get picked more than the blacks.More whites people consume drugs, but only blacks get arrested and staying in prison for a long time.I can list 100 more things like this. Until we the people stop segregating blacks this will continue.18  Reply

            ……

  • IgnorantWisdom

    Its clear that Nelly isnt the one who really cares , J.Cole was very clear that he didnt want to do no interview Nelly goes straight to CNN and talk about a “scolarship” after saying what he said i dont want to judge but that is how publicity stunt looks like but this aint no publicity stunt is a PR stunt to clear the air after saying Some BS and what he is preaching is all wrong we do have more options but its cut short when we are profiled as criminal just bcuz your skin is darker so yes it is time to take the streets not with violence but still time for action

    • marty mcfly

      Yeah but with that said, Nelly gonna start paying for niggas college education over the situation. J Cole dropped a song the same day he was taking pictures at the memorial…

      • IgnorantWisdom

        He didnt released the song on the same day tha he was out there in Ferguson it has a 3 day diference between that. But i wont go far as discussing if Cole used this for promotion or not but the actions speaks to itself, and Nelly is looking like a agent, he is talking about justice but just justice aint gonna cut it this time with all due respect to Mike Brown and the but this trancends to be a fact tha affect every minorities in the whole world and just in the U.S so his unfourtnately death bring lights to the issue and we cant close our eyes like nelly is asking and just seek for court justice and get some brothers to University aint gonna cut it or u dont remember that man that even Cole was talking about when he was in ferguson who had accident in the day of his graduaton or has just graduated and he managed to survive the accident go ask for help in a nearby house and the ol’lady call the police cuz she tought he was robbing her and then when the police arrives tase him up and he dies, so that scolarship aint gone change nothing the diploma stays at home our skin and racist people dont

        • marty mcfly

          The point is Nelly decided to make a long term commitment after the situation. Cole took some pictures and made sure he got some song promotion at the same time. You imply that brothers getting college educations or college scholarships dont help? Well its better then just taking pictures with protesters.

          • IgnorantWisdom

            Doesnt help in being racially profiled helps in other aspects and if Nelly comes through with this its really a good thing and maybe Cole is doing something and is not publicizing it. I think Nelly is passing the wrong message we just cant bow down and just ask for justice as he is implying to.

          • marty mcfly

            You have no choice but to bow down. I know what people mean by wanting to protest and stand up for themselves but the bottom line is this. Police will always continue to profile you and try and arrest you or kill you if you black. No matter what you do thats never gonna change period. The object is to make yourself less and less of a target by creating your own personal agenda and circumstances that rarely put you in positions where getting killed by a cop is a possibility. You dont have to like it but the police will continue to kill black men and there aint a damn thing you can do about it.

          • IgnorantWisdom

            There is no such thing as thats never gonna change at least a believe in that, i believe that it takes time to change, as far as being targeted u imply that what we change the way we dress the kind of music we hear erase our culture from our lives or keep it in secret i will forever be a target them i refuse to bow down and to be a model just for survival because not even that can save you if u got stop by the wrong and we have to change that and the Mike Brown law its very big step into the change that u dont believe

          • marty mcfly

            In the last a hundred years when have the police made an effort to not profile you, arrest you or kill you? Now you wanna wait around for that to change? I didnt say change the way you dress, or the music or the culture etc… See you look for ways to create more obstacles for yourself and then complain when the cops put a gun in your face… I implied that black people take heed to the first law of nature universally, and thats self preservation. The cops dont care about your protests, they dont care about your opinion, the only thing they are willing to discuss with you is if you would like to have a good old fashioned gun fight? Other then that fuck you and thats what our people need to understand. You dont ask the police to go easier on you, you take steps to not come in contact with them.

          • marty mcfly

            Now if people wanna continue to walk around like you gonna “stand your ground” against the police? Dont be surprised when they attack you.

          • marty mcfly

            You will always be profiled because to them you are a nigger plain and simple. You are a boogie man and the sum of their fears, your a potential threat because your a nigger and it doesn’t matter if your a school boy. Based on other people’s bullshit that has nothing to do with you? You will have to suffer the consequences by getting locked up your getting shot and killed period. I would suggest black men do more and more to stay off police radar. You wanna shut down further growth and monopolization of the private prison industrial complex? Stop going

          • IgnorantWisdom

            And thats what complete outrage me i understand the fact that black man have to do better in not put yourself in some positions that can get u fucked up and this come with education and thats why the scholarships is a good thing education its what will keep ppl out of jail most of times the government should be the one to assure education but thats not where the money at for them and do not interest them to se us winning thats a fact but we have to fight to change i get the frustration and some times our own frustrate us but we need to fight that

          • marty mcfly

            I done man. If black people wanna “fight”? Then stop with all the speeches and marches. A “fight” is something else… Black people need new tactics and strategy when it comes to “fighting”… The police showed up with weapons to “fight” in Ferguson and all niggas did was throw shit. Not one officer was killed. Thats not a “fight” imo. Now I am NOT suggesting that black people start engaging in violence to “fight” but I am suggesting that a new weapon be used against the enemy…. #Collective Black Economics

          • IgnorantWisdom

            Violence will not do it in that case and yes maybe the way to fight that its is collective black economics but sure aint bowing downg

          • marty mcfly

            Its either black people use economics to help ourselves at this point or violence by strategic assassinations and gorilla warfare tactics. Its 2014, stop asking your enemy to help you. Either free yourself economically/politically/systematically… or kill your enemy at this point. Its either black ballot or bullet. You saw what the reaction was to the black people in Ferguson. Lucky the cameras were there and captain Ron Johnson was there to kinda hold down the situation but the cops overall were not there to talk to niggas. They came to lock up niggas or kill niggas plain and simple. If black people wanna talk about “fighting” then after centuries of never getting the enemy to help you do shit I think by now it either has to be using economics and collective intelligence to build our own damn cites, schools, “peacekeepers” etc… Or “fighting” by the real definition of “fighting”… Save the speeches and marches and talks with the enemy, they dont care what you have to say.

          • marty mcfly

            And again, I would caution against violence, however I would also say that talking to the police doesn’t accomplish shit either. Black people need to stop talking to anybody who is not about black progression. Stop helping them politically, stop speaking to news reporters. Plan and strategize a collective action and then follow through all at once and quickly establish modern day Black Wall Streets all over this country. Then proceed in setting up our own government within the United States government. THAT is freedom imo

          • IgnorantWisdom

            I agree with u on that, but Ferguson have the whole world look at them right now whats happening there could be what Black ppl and minorities that yes we can do something and stop accepting everything theydo to us and rise and have the economical power to start doing what they arent doing for us

        • marty mcfly

          And honestly Id say college scholarship is way better then getting justice in this case. What does getting justice mean here? It means the officer might get one or two years in prison for manslaughter… Nelly committing himself to the ongoing process of granting black men college scholarships is a lot better then one cop going to prison.

          • IgnorantWisdom

            I agree with you send a black man to college is great And justice too but none of them will keep us safe of being racially profilled and be killed by a cop and everybody piss and shit in your name to try justify their acts of racism. I have done some shit i was in college i turned my life around but i bet if i get killed by a cop that wont matter and that need to
            Be changed as many other things and wont be changed doing scholarships and seek for justice

    • marty mcfly

      And that song Cole did is probably the only song people pressed play on all year from Cole so one could also say he also used the situation for self interest.

    Salute to Nelly and J. Cole for making public appearances in Ferguson

    Niggas don’t listen to shit unless they get promoted by a major blog missing out on good music!

    Lets make history and use social media to promote some real niggas! I need some help convincing Drake and Lil Wayne to remix my brother @BigalHarrison song titled Street Fighter.

    Here’s the song on YouTube: Bigal Harrison – Street Fighter

    We made the song well over a year ago and got celebrities like Trinidad James, and Rob Markman to give their criticism on the track, now we need each and every one of you to Share this track with Drake and Lil Wayne or even make this comment a top comment here on Worldstar and get Worldstar to post the video for further exposure.

    Drake and Wayne come to VA Beach on the 25th of this month so I’m hoping that I can get enough help from everyone on here to get enough exposure. So a like, a comment on the youtube video, or even an upvote will be highly appreciated.
