Nas Speaks On Charleston Shooting

Racism Is Rotting America.

Prayers are with the family and friends of the shooting victims of Charleston, SC. The gunman, Dylann Roof, was apprehended early yesterday and told investigators he wanted to “start a race war”.

Last night at the Fresh Dressed premiere, VIBE caught up with Nas on the red carpet who weighed in on the tragic incident.

  • Even Nas is brainwashed…white person does something atrocious they even have us programmed to think he’s an exception suffering from “mental illness”. The entire white race with it’s colonization and extermination of other peoples can be thought of as having a “mental illness”. You’re still the best though Nas…MC, not activist/philosopher…

    • Kevin Banks

      He’s being political. Nas sells out venues all over America, Europe and Australasia with mostly Caucasians in attendance, why would he fuck up his money when he’s got Kelis to feed as well.

      I think he’s truly aware of the situation but perhaps he has lost his warrior spirit.

      Preach. White people have been killing us for hundreds of years, this is not a mental illness just mere hatred and evilness. People need to stop giving excuses for these white murderers?

      Word, if I as a black man drove to a specific church and shot nine innocent people and then claimed oh mental issues made me do it? People would be like gtfoh.

      I hear you views on Nas, but I have to disagree. This man has given so much of himself to his music and fans. By you simply stating he is “brainwashed by white people”, displays a gross characterization and it belittles the discourse on the real matter, which is gun control. Nas is simply stating the obvious. Most individuals who commit mass murders are insane. Just look at the incidents of the past three years: In Norway, Anders Breivik, he killed people using a military assault rifle and wrote a manifesto to justify his actions – James Eagan Holmes, another mass shooter. He claimed the Dark Knight’s version of the Joker, was his biggest inspiration for killing those people in the movie theater – Now let’s look at Adam Lanza. This man killed his own mother before going ape shit at Sandy Hook Elementary. Yes, these men are all white, and most, if not all of the victims, we’re also white. So with all of this information, you mean to tell me it’s a race issue? Come on, it’s not as simple as that. These individuals are dealing with personal delusional trauma, and should’ve sought medical attention. I feel as a society, we should try our hardest to eliminate the generation of hate. The problem with most of these white folks, is the older generation. The older generation feels threatened as the country, no, the world, gets darker and darker. A few years from now, whites will be the minority, and they’ll have to make adjustments from within.

    I fux with Nas, but I can’t Cosign he’s stance. How he Gona jump on mental illness as a main reason for this shooting? white people have a way of brain washing the fuck out of us. Yo man, mo’fuckaz are born into hate, why can’t we accept that? Hitter was a smart mentally healthy man, he just hated niggas and Jews …that’s just fact

    In our rush to judgment perhaps we are overlooking something. That this was a hate crime there is little or no doubt. But it also was a targeted crime the shooter specifically ask for state Senator Pinckney which suggest to me that the gunman did not know the Senator by sight .nor were there any prior interaction between the two men. That the actions of the shooter was premeditated there is no doubt, the shooter knew when, where, and at what time the Senator would be at the church, that suggest planning. Planning negates the theory that this act was carried out by a lone racist gunman. I believe that someone else provided the Intel to the gunman to ensure that he would be at the right place at the right time to kill the right man. The other deaths were collateral damages.

  • Iamstillmusic

    I dont think he was too misguided, he admitted it was racism but also admitted that the guy may have real mental problems. The 21 year old himself looks like a psycho, so its not far fetched. I think in 2015 we are still being treated like animals and killed everyday like sheep. The question is when are we going to build your own pyramids and stop complaining? When are black americans going to research their roots and move back to Africa?

    Niggas is dumb I swear. Don’t see the problem with what Nas has said. He clearly stated that racism is rotting the country, and in the process alluded to the fact that you must be mentally ill to be a racist. Anyone that hates another person cos of the colour of their skin is a sicko. Damn, Niggas acting to smart for their own good.
