Our youth are dying every damn day in this country. White, black, hispanic, etc. A verdict was reached - GET OVER IT! Whites didn't like the verdict that was reached in the OJ Simpson case, but did you see us out there assaulting police officers, citizens, police horses, breaking windows, starting fires, turning over cars, ripping people out of their vehicles? Shall I go on? What a disgrace!

Jay-Z, please keep your satanic closet homosexuel self away from that poor kid and his memory. Yes, Jay-Z loves the penis. There is nothing wrong with that except not coming out.

Enough already. All these "justice for trayvon" people, did you even watch a second of the trial?! No, but because your president opens his big mouth, you automatically believe that trayvon was in the right.

Aww... 15,000 young black men being shot up every day but man, that gets me in the feels ya'll. Two multi-millionaires that wouldn't be caught dead in a ghetto, at a concert you have to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars for giving their tribute. How. Sweet.

Here is a black man who is begging white people to stop helping blacks throw their tantrum riots and then rebuilding their communities. He says some are just bad and need to be where they are and need to face the consequences of their actions.


He is calling for black people to grow up and stop acting like spoiled children. He notes that there are people in their sixties who have never grown up and are part of this mindset to get stuck on an idea and not listen to reason, just based on their emotions.


Don't I know it. We are being led by a bunch of old babies and the blacks worst of all. People need to grow up and stop trying to live out fairy tales of peace and love by demanding their way.

Who cares what comes out of any of these morons mouths. They're paid entertainers. Shut up and entertain me. Keep your politics to yourself.

I really do love the song and it was a nice dedication to his life but i honestly think that this particular situation was taken too far. He was just an every day human being like we all are who was unfortunately killed for being involved in a criminal act. Everyone is acting like they knew him and that he was a big celebrity, but i wish people would just face the facts that he is dead and there is nothing else you can do about it
He will always be remembered by his loved ones, but there are other people out there who do so much more for us and they are barely appreciated for what they do, especially when it comes to the troops that are out there fighting for their lives right now. Main point, lets love and make peace not fight and start using these situations to hate against others who have done nothing but live their life

I don't get why people are celebrating the life of a 17 year old, pot smoking, racist, punk who, instead of running home, jumped a guy and got himself shot.
