Coulda Te m '

Kè m 'se lou. Mwen konnen Bondye se yon bon bagay, e ke Li se nan kontwòl, men kè m 'se lou.

Semèn pase a apre evènman yo nan Ferguson (ak repons yo nan li sou medya sosyal), Mwen te santi m chay yo ekri yon chante. Objektif mwen pa t 'fè okenn deklarasyon Grand oswa deklarasyon, men eksprime sa yo panse wout la ke tout bagay fè m 'santi. Se konsa, mwen te kòmanse ekri, ak sa a se kisa ki vini soti. santiman ke répéta nan lide m 'te: "Li te kapab te m '."

Mwen te gen yon pòs antye pare sou kòman kretyen ta dwe reponn nan tan tankou sa yo, men apre nouvèl la sou Eric Garner yè, Mwen deside rete tann ak pòs ki pita. Pou kounye a, Mwen jis vle di ke mwen gen yon kè lou. Mwen se pa enterese nan deba oswa agiman kounye a. Mwen jis vle libète a eksprime sa yo panse malè rive mwen.

Mwen blese paske sa videyo Eric Garner se devastatè yo gade. Lè madanm mwen epi mwen premye gade li mwa de sa, nou tou de pran rele. Lavi se yon kado bèl, ak li a pridans yo gade ke lavi kite kò yon moun nan - espesyalman lè li nan pran pa lòt gason. mwen te panse, "Se vre wi moun ki pa ka jwenn lwen ak ki. Omwen yo pral oblije reponn pou aksyon yo nan yon pwosè. "

Mwen te panse mal. Epi sa fè m mal.

Mwen blese paske li nan danjere yo dwe yon nonm nwa nan Amerik. Mwen konnen ke deklarasyon pou kont li se ofansif nan kèk moun, men li la objektivman vre.

Mwen blese paske kominote nwa yo blese, fèblès ansanm paske nan pwoblèm anpil konplèks.

Mwen blese paske nan etranj kouri ins yo-mwen te gen ak flik yo nan tan lontan an.

Mwen blese paske chak moun nwa mwen konnen te gen menm jan an kouri-ins.

Mwen blese paske flik yo move fè li pi difisil pou flik yo bon fè travay la enpòtan yo ve yo te rele.

Mwen blese paske mwen gen yo anseye pitit gason m 'menm bagay la papa m' te gen nan anseye m ': "Moun pral asime ou se yon menas anvan yo konnen anyen sou ou, kidonk, ou gen fè plis atansyon pase zanmi blan ou fè. "

Mwen blese paske gen kèk moun ki pa pran swen. Yo ta pito genyen yon diskisyon pase mal ak moun ki fè mal.

Mwen blese paske otorite yo pa iminitè a peche ak brokenness ki move maladi rès la nan nou. Lè moun ki ap rele mechanste lapolis yo koupab de li tèt yo, kote fè nou vire? Mwen kontan paske mwen gen yon moun pi gwo ale nan, epi mwen te gen espwa paske Bondye pral pote jistis nan fen a. Men, sa pa vle di mwen pa blese.

Mwen blese paske trajedi yo ki jwenn medya pwoteksyon yo pa trajedi yo sèlman. Gen anpil plis.

Pou zanmi m 'ki pa konprann, tanpri pran tan nan pou koute epi pou senpatize. Pou ou kab vin "rapid pou koute epi pou fasil fè pale" se yon mak nan imilite ak matirite. Anvan ou objè, pran yon moman renmen tande pale de moun ki ap blese.

Se konsa, anpil nan nou ap blese paske nou panse nan tèt nou, “Li ta te m '.”

    Nice peye lajan taks reprezante lavi nwa ki gen pwoblèm epi yo pa pral neglije nan je yo nan mond lan. Yon sistèm ki nou te konte sou pandan vizit kout nou an sou Latè echwe nou, repete, nan pwen an nou vin pè pou moun yo renmen nou yo ak youn ak lòt. Mwen espere ke nou ka tout fikse je nou sou Seyè a ak grandi pi pre kòm yon sèl pèp, pèp Bondye a. Rete fò nan konfyans nan Bondye ak travay di, GAWVI ak Sòti a Lee! Grace ak kè poze!

    Hey Sòti a,

    Mwen jis te vle voye ba ou yon mesaj. Man, te koup ki sot pase la semèn te difisil pou m 'tou boujon. Mwen se yon ofisye polis ak li te gen vrèman difisil wè kèk nan moun pi renmen m ' (rapeur, mizisyen, zanmi, elatriye) pale sou lapolis chemen an, yo gen. Okòmansman mwen te fache, fristre, ak pare yo diskite ak mond lan sou ki jan yo pa t 'konprann ki jan difisil travay nou an, se, sou ki jan pè li kapab nan fwa… Mwen devine mwen te k ap viv nan yon ti wonn, paske plis la mwen li sou pwoblèm nan, plis la mwen pale ak zanmi m ', li statuts y'all nan sou ki jan ou ve yo te sispann plis pa flik, te gen machin ou fouye plis, sou sa pou fè… Mwen jis jwenn mwen ap resevwa reyèlman deprime sou sijè a tout antye.

    Mwen gen pwòp fason m 'lan nan kanpe machin. Mwen sispann yo ki baze sou bagay sa yo trè literal 80% nan tan an (enskripsyon ekspire, asirans, elatriye) paske se sa mwen “daltonyen” fason pou kontakte moun ki. Lè sa a, lòt la 20% nan tan an se si machin nan fè yon bagay trè sispèk ak aparan ke mwen ta kwè yon moun san yo pa fòmasyon yon ofisye lapolis la ta panse ke te etranj si charger ak misyon an menm mwen te. Pwen an mwen ap eseye fè se ke mwen eseye fè pi byen m 'yo rete san patipri, se konsa ke mwen pa rale yon machin sou paske li sanble “preliminè” oswa paske moun nan kondwi li sanble “tankou yon Thug”. Bagay la se, Mwen se trè kontan sou ki jan mwen te toujou ap fè travay mwen, lèfini n'a fè lwanj Bondye pou sa. Mwen devine ki kote mwen se deprime si, se ke mwen santi se konsa ti nan pwoblèm sa a BIG. plis la mwen deba, plis la mwen koute Nwa ak Arab zanmi m 'di m' sou istwa yo nan rechèch preliminè ak kòz pwobab elatriye. plis la mwen reyalize mwen te gen okenn lide kouman ou kapab ede pwoblèm sa a.

    Mwen konnen mwen bezwen priye, ak Mwen te paske mwen konnen anpil nan flik bon soti gen moun ki eseye pi byen yo epi yo ki renmen travay sa a pou tout rezon ki dwat… Men, mwen devine fyète imen an nan mwen vle pou kapab ranje pwoblèm sa a epi yo pa kanpe san fè anyen konsa pandan y ap pwoblèm sa a ap kontinye atravè Amerik. Se jis nonm ki di… Se konsa,, Mwen devine bi pou yo nòt sa a sa a vle di, Mwen santi mwen boujon doulè ou. Mwen santi doulè a ​​nan anpil nan zanmi m 'ki te sibi travay lapolis preliminè. Se pou sa li vle di / fè moute pou, Mwen vle eskize pou nenpòt sitiyasyon alèz ou ve yo te mete nan pa youn nan nou. Men dezyèm pati a nan nòt sa a se jis yon demann lapriyè, kenbe tèt mwen leve, li jwenn yon fason nan pi bon kominote mwen, plas mwen nan travay pou tout moun. Li vin fwistre lè ou wè yon pwoblèm epi ou pa konnen ki jan yo fikse li.

    Quick pwen dènye, Mwen renmen nonm sa a chante. Li mennen m 'ak dlo nan je nan katriyèm vèsè a kote ou te bay yon sèl rèl byen soti nan flik yo bon. Mèsi pou moun sa a!

    Ak renmen anpil ak respè,

      Wow! chante sa a, li nan pwòp tèt ou te gwo twou san fon ak anpil sensè men sa nòt vrèman frape yon kote ki. Kèk semèn tounen mwen te resevwa gaz nan yon ponp eta ki travay mwen mande pou nou jwenn gaz nan ak mwen ta renmen wè chef seksyon ap resevwa gaz kòm byen ak chak yon sèl mwen ta renmen wè mwen ta subkonsyan tansyon moute pa soti pè moun nan menm si paske mwen pa t 'konnen yo fè pè nan yo men li te jis pou sa a santi alèz, paske ap grandi nan la a 90 yo dwe yon ofisye lapolis Mwen vrèman gade yo kòm ewo ak nan eksperyans tankou LEES vwayaj ak tout sijè yo nan chante sa a, vizyèl m 'lan nan yo ke yo te ewo yo te pou tout tan chanje. Pa nan yon fason negatif menm si paske mwen jis tou senpleman wè yo kòm sa yo se vre wi: yo nan fen jounen an.. Yon moun.. Apre sa, mwen di Bondye mèsi dèske li pèmèt m 'nan wè yo kòm sa yo ki paske ou pa konn wè (byen mwen pa janm wè l 'lol) sivil yo nan liv komik lapriyè pou ewo. Epi sa a, sa ki te birthed soti nan moun ki ensidan… Paske nan mitan an nan tansyon m 'ak yo te pè yo gen yon move jou oswa menm pè a nan pèsepsyon yo nan moun mwen nan yon ponp gaz leta ak yon kapuch (menm si li nan frèt soti), mete gaz nan yon na tout van blan (pa t 'konnen ke mwen bay transpò pou moun ki gen andikap entelektyèl nan travay),rive konpasyon sa a santi move pou yo paske yo ta ka gen krentif pou mwen ke yo te ke yon moun a pou bay manti akize ak / oswa sispann meprize yo aji soti yon tèm ki soti pè pou lavi yo ak repitasyon. jis yon jacked moute sitiyasyon li yo ki se byen klè yon Trick nan lènmi an lakòz divizyon ak kenbe nou separe se konsa kò Kris la pa pral sou yon sèl akò Paske li konnen sa ki ka pran plas lè sa a, se konsa. Men, ti kras li konnen ke lè li fè sa ki ke li kreye 23 ane fin vye granmoun vanyan sòlda lapriyè gason ki rete kole sou pa gen anyen plis oswa pa gen anyen mwens pase Seyè Jezi Kris la nan jou sa yo dènye ak sa ki mal. Neal Mwen espere epi priye ke ou jis rete enb ki jan tout sitiyasyon ou kapab rantre nan pa gen pwoblèm atmosfè a ale an favè ou tankou yon timoun nan theMmost Bondye segondè. Fè beni!

    Men desann tach sou. tras sa a byen klè vin pwen an atravè. sitiyasyon yo se tris nye ak kè m 'se lou. Mwen se yon gason blan men te grandi bò kote moun nan koulè. Menm fèmen fanmi se nan koulè. Mwen te grandi nan youn nan katye yo pi di nan Providence, pi ba bò sid RI a ak menm byen okouran de enjistis la vini atravè peyi a. To “pwoteje ak sèvi” ta dwe sou chak ofisye lide si wi ou non vèt, ble, nwa oswa blan. Istwa sèlman repete tèt li si moun pa chanje… Mwen espere sa a vini nan yon fen ak tout moun sa yo ki te fè mal nan pwosesis la ka jwenn lapè. #AllLivesMatter

    Tripp,

    Man, Mwen li pawòl ou aswè a. Yo frape m 'difisil. Sa a sik visye peyi sa a se nan…flik erente vize jenn gason nwa paske yo anfòm yon pwofil…jenn gason nwa ap resevwa fatige pou yo te vize ak kanpe ak pale moute pou tèt yo…

    Ou wè, nati tonbe nou an pote avèk li tandans nan konpartimante eksperyans nou. Yon moun mòde pa kòm chen tankou yon timoun, anjeneral grandi ak yon degoutans nan tout chyen…swa kòm pè oswa rayi. Ki ka sa difisil simonte, paske nou pèmèt santiman sa yo…pafwa ankouraje yo, li ba yo manje ak rasyonalizasyon peti.

    Tripp, Mwen se blan. Jiska 4yèm ane klas mwen, Mwen te grandi kòm youn nan yon ti ponyen nan timoun blan nan yon katye majorite nwa nan sid Illinois. Tout zanmi mwen te nwa. Lè sa a,, nou demenaje ale rete nan Tennessee. Mwen te resevwa voye nan biwo direktè lekòl la twa fwa ane sa a pou goumen ak yon moun ki tonbe nan “N-mo”…NAN 4TH klas ki…timoun te deja aprann yo klasifye epi gade desann sou lòt moun….paske yo te koulè po. Mo sa a furieux m '…nan pwen an mwen ta kout pyen ou nan bouch la pou li di li. Li toujou kontinye infuriates m '…Mwen jis lapriyè olye pou yo kout pyen kounye a.

    Man, Mwen gen fanmi nan chak koulè ak lonbraj nan po….ak, ou konnen ki sa? Mwen fyè de li. pye bwa fanmi mwen se egzakteman sa ki fè Amerik gwo. Fanmi mwen se po a fonn Ameriken. Fanmi mwen se etonan ak mwen renmen yo tout.

    Yon ane koup de sa, Mwen te ale nan yon divòs anbarasan ak nan sòt pwòp mwen, te fini depans kèk tan deyè bawo e kounye a, gen yon dosye krim. Mwen te wè premye-men efè a nan flik move. Koulye a,, nenpòt lè yon machin patwouy vin dèyè do m 'oswa yon jandam mache sot pase m', Mwen panse, “Ki sa ki yo pral fè tan sa a? Ki sa ki yo pral rale mete deyò ba yo yon rezon ki fè nou konfwonte m '. Paske yon fwa yo konnen w ap nan sistèm lan…ou se yon kriminèl pou lavi.” Lè sa a, mwen gen yo tounen vin jwenn Bondye pou yo te etwat èspri ak sekter. Yo di yon sèl move pòm kraze pakèt la, Men, Bondye pa t 'fè nou nan imaj la nan pòm…Li te fè nou nan imaj li. Sa a te rive nan konte pou yon bagay, dwat?

    onètman, bro…apre ou fin li mo ou ak medite sou yo epi gade dèyè sou lavi m '….ki ta ka te m ', twò.

    Mwen pa di ke alalejè oswa yo pran lwen gravite a nan pawòl ou. Se jis opoze a. Gen yon pwoblèm, men pwoblèm nan nwa ak blan se pa yon nwa & blan pwoblèm. Chak moun se diferan ak trase sou eksperyans pwòp lavi yo mete sou fòm rasyonèl pèsepsyon pwòp yo nan mond sa a tonbe nou ap viv nan. Pwoblèm lan se peche. Nou tout nou se koupab de li. Mwen di Bondye mèsi gen moun yo deyò kounye a ki obeyi Pawòl Li ak yo ap eseye ede geri. Mwen te gen ou menm ak anpil lòt moun nan aswè a priyè m. Anpil renmen.

Mwen panse ke manifestasyon nan, piyaj ak boule bagay sa yo desann yo ale nan fè timoun blan rasis (bc yo wè li tout sou televizyon, epi yo ale nan panse ke tout moun nwa fè sa) e mwen panse timoun nwa yo ale nan panse ke li nan ok yo aji tankou sa. pa bay lapolis la yon rezon ki fè nou “pwofil.” Sispann fè katye yo nwa pati pyès sa yo pi danjre nan tout lavil. tout moun (tout koulè) bezwen sispann panse yo pi wo pase lalwa a e pa gen anyen ki pral rive si yo kraze li. (Bon chante, menm si… ou gen ladrès)

    Sòti a, sa a se yon fason a rezoud pwoblèm nan, pale, eksprime santiman, ouvèti moute ak priye! pa rayi…Mèsi!
    Mwen se yon mitan ki gen laj fanm blan. Mwen gen yon pèspektiv trè diferan. Mwen te tou anmède tankou yon jenn ti fi blan (konstan asèlman seksyèl) , ak te soufri diskriminasyon nan lòt fason. Pou egzanp ke yo te pase moute pou travay paske yo te yo te twò gwo menm si mwen te pi kalifye. men,, Mwen pa janm kite l 'jwenn m' desann paske yon sèl la sèlman mwen gen yo enpresyone se Bondye, epi se sa ki mwen eseye anseye timoun yo ki pi piti mwen menm ki alantou. Nou tout ap fè fas ak diskriminasyon, Nou tout, nan kèk fason oubyen yon lòt. Men, sa ki jenn gason nwa fè fas a mete an danje lavi yo, Mwen panse ke se pwen an anpil yo ap eseye jwenn atravè.

Ki se jis yon lòt rezon ki fè nou dwe peze pou jistis.

Premye ak premye pou frè ak sè nou yo nan Afriken Ameriken / Nwa kominote a, men tou pou sosyete nou an kòm yon antye. Nou pa ka siviv nan yon peyi kote ki gen tirani.

Se konsa, li yon pwoblèm kiltirèl isit la epi yo pa yon pwoblèm ras, epi li jis pou k ap pase ki kilti a nou ap pale sou se evidans nwa.

Nou bezwen sispann blame “rasis” kòm kòz la nan insidan trajik sa yo. Verite a se ke te gen yon gwo pati nan kominote a nwa te enfliyanse negativman pa mizik. pa sèlman kominote a li nwa, li lemonn antye, men paske pi fò nan rapeur sa yo, se nwa, nwa fasil idantifye tèt yo ak yo.

        Kòm kretyen nou bezwen yo dwe yo menm ki enfliyanman mond lan bò kote nou, pou dedomajman pou la nan mond lan. Mond lan dwe wè espwa a ak tout bèl pouvwa nan nou. Sa a se wout la sèlman nou pral fè yon diferans nan mond sa a swayed pa youn nan sa ki mal.

    Sòti a,
    Ou ve yo te yon enspirasyon m 'depi m' te premye koute ou. Epi pandan ke y Mwen jeneralman renmen chante ou, yon sèl sa a te fè m 'plis pase nenpòt tris, epi li pa jis paske yo te trajedi yo nan lanmò ki te fèt. Li nan enkwayab yo vire sou televizyon an oswa li nouvèl la ak wè tout bagay ke nou ka fè sa ki mal nan mond sa a. Mwen pa konnen anyen sou ka sa yo espesyalman mansyone sou kote nan men sa medya yo di m ', si mwen dwe di mwen gen sèten opinyon pou chak kesyon. Ki sa ki pi ki fè mal m 'se lefèt a ki pa gen moun ki remarke mouvman an nan motif soti nan k ap chèche verite a ak etabli jistis, vire sou yo ak sou aliénation lòt moun, plis espesyalman blan moun skinned ak flik. wout la mwen wè li, bagay la sèlman fè pwomosyon rasis moun sa yo ki moun ki kanpe sou yon platfòm premye bay ras yo ak fòt yo. An premye, Mwen te ale nan post yon pakèt moun sou lyen ki mennen nan istwa mwen te dènyèman li touye moun sou terib ki te pwan plas dènyèman nan moun blan skinned pa men yo nan moun nwa skinned, pa paske mwen te vle di nwa moun skinned yo terib oswa mwens pase moun blan skinned, men yo di ke tout moun isit la se soufrans ak tout yo se viktim. Konbyen blan moun skinned gen ou mande sou ins kouri preliminè ak flik? Mwen garanti ou yo te te gen yo, flik fè erè. Im pa ap eseye pran yon bò isit la, my point is that the only ones keeping racism alive are NOT those who supposedly act out of hate against those of another race, it’s one act of self-motivated hate, justice belongs to the Lord. But when a whole community or group continue to believe that their skins makes them any different from others. Those who believe their skins allows them to act or behave in control of others or gives them special permission to be offended. The race isn’t the crime. And our skin isn’t who we are, whether we grew up in Africa or Mexico, our skin pigment isn’t our culture or legacy. I don’t want to know you as Trip Lee the black man, and I don’t want to be known as Jacob the black man, or Jacob the white man. I’m Jacob, you’re Trip. We only advance this growing divide by acknowledging that it’s even there. But there is no divide. All brothers. All sisters. All sons and daughters of the Lord. I’m sorry you’re hurting man, thanks for all you’ve inspired in my life!

    I feel you on the lyrics man. I’m sorry that this has happened to you in the past and I am hurting with you as with all those who have been afflicted with this violence. Living love and walking with others, meaning to hurt with them and weep with them, is what we are called to do with those in suffering. I ask for prayer as I am currently struggling with things on a personal level but I’ll also keep you and people involved in this in prayer as well. Love you bro. May never meet you but I love you.

    I don’t understand this #couldabeenme. Trip I have been a fan for quite some time to not just you but other Christian rappers that have now spoken out about what happened in Ferguson, however I have become frustrated recently with the outcry over Ferguson.

    I am going to be upfront I am a 25 year old white male. I don’t understand what it is like to be a minority in the united states. I don’t feel like I have ever been pulled over because of my race. I have never been patted down because of my race. I have never been held back because of my race. These are things that I cant say I understand.

    While we are talking about things I cant understand lets talk about the #couldabeenme tag. REALLY?!? It could have been you?!? You would stolen cigars from a convenient store and then not listened to a cop? You would resist arrest? You would have hit or physically harmed an officer in uniform?!?

    Please tell me why you would do those things!

    You see while I understand that I will never know what it is like to be a minority in the US I have lived overseas. I lived in Europe for 8 ane. While spending time in Europe I found out that every country has a different culture. one of the things my family found that was very interesting was whenever we meet a black person in Europe they were from the UK. Everyone of them spoke proper English and were very polite and well dressed. None of them wore their pants around their knees.

    You see there was a different culture there where it was unacceptable for they youth to act like thugs. Here in the US there are pockets of culture where it is normal, even exalted to act like a thug. Why is this the case???

    What does all this have to do with Ferguson?? Well everyone is calling this Michael Brown kid a good kid. I mean he is going to college! Well since when is going to college equal being a good kid? Lets look at the facts he wasn’t a good kid. He was a thief and a trouble maker. In the end he didn’t listen to authority and this eventually lead to his death.

    What I don’t understand Trip is that for this to happen, for tocouldabeenmeyou would have had to do these things too. You would have had to steal from a store and then fought the cop that stopped you afterwards.

    Alafen, what happened is sad! However it could not have been you. It could not have been me. That is not because I am a 25 year old male. It is because I would not steal and I would not fight a cop. Those are the issues here. Not race.

    Premye, I’d like to praise the Lord for your salvation and servant hood brother. You represent the Father well. I’m blessed to say that you’re the first artist that God used to significantly impact my walk early in my salvation. Got saved in December of 2006 and I was so deeply embedded in the Hip Hop/Urban culture that it was hard to transition just listening to contemporary worship, “I Love Mizik”. Appreciate your interview and advice regarding cultural awareness as it pertains to biblical worship and how it varies.

    May the Lord bless you and increase the fruits of you labor!

    Pastor Bill, grace and peace to you as wellthough I agree fully regarding resisting arrest I strongly believe that there are standards that should be upheld and enforced for improper procedures/actions.

    Me personally I do not agree with this song. It shows the racism that is truly in america. Everyone complains that the whites are racist just because they did there job. If it was a black man who shot the kid (whom reached for the officers gun) shot him nothing would of been said whatsoever. Just my opinion and bring on the hate :)

    Trip just wanted to let you know I am hurting for you and feel burdened to be part of the solution. I am a youth director at a suburban church with mostly white kids, I spent my Wednesday night study with them last night diving into Gods word helping them understand why there is hurt on both sides, how as believers we are to let love cover all and let the light of Christ shine, how we are to weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice. Then spent tonight @ a event called Faith Rx which you may be familiar with, giving that same message to adults. I know the road to healing is long for all involved and will only be made real when we focus our eyes on the King and live like Christ. I am so sorry for the pain on both sides and want you to know I have been and will continue to pray for heart change among those with blind eyes. Keep your head up, God is faithful and good, and you continue to do what God has blessed you with, you ARE making a difference.

    I know that I am not perfect and I need Gods love everyday. He has been graceful to me. He spared my life today from a terrible anxiety attack. I thought I was going to die but he did not allow it.

    An premye, when I saw these posts, I didn’t get it. I pretty much just thought it was annoying, and I’m not too proud of that now. After listening to this song and Derek Minor’s recent release, I was reminded that grace is a big part of this, and the part I was missing most. I didn’t take the time to think about it from different perspectives. As a middle-class white guy attending a university, I had a difficult time understanding that we are looked at differently by others, you and I. Sepandan, once I took the time to do so, my eyes were opened to a different place than the place I’ve been in my whole life. I want to sincerely apologize for not taking that time to see things from your perspective, and I want to encourage everyone to approach all of this with grace in mind. It is key. I thank you for posting this song, Derek Minor for releasing his, and all of the 11Six crew who have spoken about this issue and shared their wisdom.

    I am a pastor of a church in a small town in Arkansas and I don’t get stopped by the police for no apparent reason……..ANYMORE. That has not always been the case. My brother and I were stopped and told to get out of the car at gunpoint and all we did was drive into a town in northern Wisconsin. We were 19 oswa 20 zan. Five years earlier we were walking home and a police car slowly trailed us for three blocks or so before stopping us. They said we looked like some suspects in a robbery.

    I said it doesn’t happen anymore fully believing that it still can and that things can quickly go terribly wrong.

    I was introduced to Christian Hip Hop through KAA and I listen to the words in your songs all of the time. “leve non” is cold, cold, cold.

    Your words speak truth about Christ boldly and 116.

    I appreciate this bold statement which looks at the big picture and does not separate and focus on one incident.

    When you said every black man you know has experienced thisI am one of them.

    Reach out to me anytime.

    What a friend we have in Jesus; ALL our sins and griefs to bear, all because we do no carry EVERYTHING to God in prayer.. It’s tough BUT God is able to intercept if we render our helplessness entirely to His grace that is more than sufficient. We can ask many questions, question our identity etc., yet miss all the answers God has already provided in His Word if only we search the scriptures. If we have ever needed God, it’s NOW that faith is, as we realize the systems we trust to protect us fail. God is our refuge and strength a very present help in time of needOur hope is in the Lord God of the Bible through Jesus our Lord and Saviour and prince of peace, it’s for these reasons He took our place to die so we are accepted in the beloved and to be set free regardless of our diversity. We need not wait for another incident inevitably at this rate, let’s return to God, our first love. We left Him but He never left us. He is waiting, to heal our wounds and to dress us in royalty so we are dignified as His children not disgraced as slaves who have no rights. God is our father, we belong to Him, He is a responsible Dad we need Him! He has all we need including human rights!

    ok, so I see how this goes. Premye, I guess all the posted comments have to be in favor of your sad sappy cry baby song or they don’t get posted. Then it appears not you or one of your (pozitif) commenters gets the irony on the fact that literally thousands of human beings perish daily around the world from person on person violence yet one over weight, asthmatic black man dies while resisting arrest, it happens to get caught on camera and now we have sainted him, played the race card, decried all police nationwide as overly forceful and called for a national uprising. Jis yon kesyon: if this individual had worked just as hard to make a living for himself and his family in a legal, lawful otherwise customary fashion instead of illicit unlawful activity might he still be alive today? At least we would be spared your sappy self pity.

    I am a white man who works with youth from various races and backgrounds. At the moment, 80% of the group is black and your song offends me. I have purchased many copies of your CD’s to give out to the group but no more. The flip side of your songIt could have been meis that you are really saying, “It could have been YOU” (white man) who could have done this to me (black man). You are WHITEwashing the real issue at heart and that is SIN. As a Christian artist you should know better but you are doing what others are doing: you are capitalizing on the deaths of others to sell your music and make money. You are know different from Al Sharpton. Please read the story of the rape & killing of the white couple Channon Christian, 21, and boyfriend Christopher Newsom, 23 at the hands of people who happened to be black. This story never made the headlines because the horrific deaths of whites do not sell papers or rap songs. It could have been you but it definitely happened to them. Se konsa,, why don’t you sing about that. Hopefully, you will allow this to be posted and remain posted.

    Wow. It must be miserable being a victim your whole life. Misery certainly loves company, menm si.

    Your song almost made me feel sorry for myself too considering every hurtful thing ever done to me. What’s the difference between you and me? I choose to learn from the past, and move on. Maybe I was in the wrong. Maybe I was wronged. Who cares.

    I’m stronger than that.

    p.s. I’m a white male, and I too have had confrontations with law enforcement as a teen never once being charged. I thank God for every one of those situations and how I learned from them.

    Trip Lee is so light-skinned, he can pass as white. His wife and kids are also white looking. How can he claim to really be black or have the same experience as black people.

    Yes I’m white and even I know that life is harder for blacks with dark skin.

    Come Lord Jesus!

    jodi a, since the killing of the two NYPD officers, I finally thought that I would search the video of Eric Garner_I watched it, I could only handle watching it once; I am absolutely in dis-believe!! The tears are flowing….how fucking dare the cops, how dar them !! I am SO SORRY for Eric’s family, and friends. I understand that he was actually a great man, a beautiful, giving soul. RIP Eric Garner.

    I am a White female, in my early 50’s, I’ve never lived in the cities like where Eric did. I am privileged by any means; I work hard, have struggles making end meet; I have been wrong in the work place; actually bullied, fired, on more than one occasion; I have no rights, no one cares, the EEOC, is a crock of ….! Pandan tout lavi m ', I have had a run in or two with a cocky police officer; men, I have also had experiences with many good police officers. There is NO EXCUSE good enough for the actions taken against ERIC; he was SO violated, and basically killed at the hands of a cocky police officer. I can’t understand the failure in our judicial system; I just shake my head, I don’t know what to do; while watching the news, and listening to the stories_it repulses me! My parents raised me to not see color(s)… we are all one; we do all come from different walks of life; many of us have struggles, many struggles throughout life; but the same blood flows through our veins. Malgre ke, I’ve never been on thewrong side of the law;” my brother has, he to is White, did some time in prison(10yrs) for some petty crimes that were blown completely out of proportion; he has been out for about 15yrs now; he had to where an ankle bracelet for awhile(2yrs,) so that was a reason for the local cops to get to know him well, and hassle him, constantly, at that time. It’s been 15yrs, with NO issues, and he still gets hassled to this day, it is pathetic; he is still paying for the crime, although he has well completed his time. It is not just a Black problem, it is all of our problem. There is so much wrong with everything today, and basically, we really don’t have rightsbecause if we don’t do it the right way then we are wrong, and punished in some way or another. Malgre ke, there are many bad people in this world, one’s that have little regard for the life of another person, thieves, thugs of all colors; we need police officers to help fight crime; they do risk there lives many days; but their control, their level of force, the lack of listening to people, their sense of cockiness; it is most always the case of you are guilty, until proven innocent, and people all over this nation are being treated like they are less than that of the police officer(“law official.”) IT MUST STOP! Ourgreatnation, is not really so great at this timestarting with the government, trickling down to the local police.

    Back to Eric, ankò, I am so sorry, and sad for his family and friends. I very misfortunate eventI hope that through perseverance his family will get some justice, of course it could never replace Eric.

    May peace be with you all.

    I don’t even know where to start. That’s exactly how I feel and I’m not even American but being black, knowing that people are being oppressed and then even murdered by authority is just heart wrenching, and then to know that the same authority is getting away with such makes it so hard to believe in any justice system, reyèlman. I sympathise with the families involved and affected, both from the victims or perpetrators side.

    men,, he stayed true to his music and lived long enough to write over 800 songs and hear his musics ascend
    from the first row pews to the choir stand, where it previously had
    been banned. With a powerful computer, some mics, a digital audio workstation, and a little know-how,
    anyone can record and distribute music. men,
    lè sa a,, the advent of internet, broadband, compressed audio formats and more
    portable media players has led to the revolutionary changes in this industry.
