Rappers Willie D, Immortal Technique & Rebel Diaz Speak out on Trayvon Martin Tragedy


Houston rapper and Geto Boys member Willie D Near Tears After Getting So Angry About Trayvon Martin in FOX 26 Interview!

One thing I can say about Willie D and the Geto Boys they have always spoken out and given tons of money toward causes like these.. I remember talking with Willie and Bushwick Bill about the topic of political prisoners and finding out how they had laid out several hundred thousand dollars so folks on death row could get lawyers and fight to prove their innocence.

I recall being with Willie D years ago at Minister Farrakhan’s home when he got artists together to help put an end to the so-called East -West Coast beef.. Willie was one of the key speakers that day..  We need more Willie D’s

Immortal Technique is someone who is grossly under appreciated. He’s long spoken on issues like Trayvon. As noted in this video below he connects the dots and sheds light on the rise of vigilante killings. He talks about how there are so many victims who are unnamed.

He’s absolutely correct. It’s crucial that folks take note that vigilante killings are happening with increased frequency along the borders in states like Arizona where, Neo-Nazis and Minute Men are jamming up immigrants and members within the Brown/ Latino communities with reckless abandon.. Peep tech’s wise words below

Along the same lines of connecting the dots and bringing attention to the rise in vigilante killings where folks are deemed ‘suspicious’, we recently held a round table discussion on the topic…Our guest included Bronx based rapper Rodstarz from the group Rebel Diaz.. He talked about how the Trayvon Martin killing came on heels of the Ramarley  Graham killing in New York..

Here you had police officers who decided that Graham who was standing outside his home was ‘suspicious’.. Graham who was well aware of the police Stop and Frisk policy wanted to not be one of the 680 thousand people who police stopped, so he went back inside his home. Police had not warned Graham to stop. Nor was he detained. However cops seeing him leave considered it a ‘furtive’ movement which is the basis on which they can pursue subjects.. They ran after Graham thinking he had a gun.. They busted into his house.. They never rang the bell or asked to be let in.. Ran upside his house and shot him in front of his grandmother. No weapon was ever found..

Rod recently penned a powerful article called the Fleeting Whiteness of George Zimmerman where he offered up some good solutions

In the video below we talk about that shooting as well as the culture of suspicion and how it plays out in Black, Muslim and Latino Communities.. Our other guest are; Cephus Johnson aka Uncle Bobby (He’s the Uncle to Oscar Grant), Zahra Brillo of the CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations ) and Isaac Ontiverous of Critical Resistance.. This is a powerful discussion that all need to see so we are familiar with how this Trayvon tragedy is not isolated

  2. These people are ghetto idiots. Every day people die from avoidable things be it car wrecks, industrial accidents or something else that has little or nothing to do with racism,gangs or pigs. Nobody cries for those people. The reason dumb rappers focus on this one incident is because it makes them feel important.
    It’s not a display of intelligence, it’s a display of stupidity. The only LESSON is to stay away from pigs and stay away from ghetto idiots. Once you get tangled up in their confused ideological web you will lose all perspective and be made as retarded as they are! F**k HipHop.

  3. THE BROTHAS WILLIE D AND IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE SPEAK THE TRUTH AND THE DEVILS ARE SO BRAINWASHED AND INBRED BY THEIR FALSE MENTAL DISEASE Of WHITE SUPREMACY THEY CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH AND JUMP OFF THE CLIFF …

  4. @ Iearned… It Seems your more ignorant by choice and if you were not such a f-IN Moron I would tell you to kill yourself for you give the human race a bad name.. It’s really too bad your father wasn’t smart smart enough to pull out of the poor excuse of a person you call your mother I guess two failing human beings brought a completely useless fecal stain in this world when they could have avoided you knowing when injustice stomps your the empty cavity known as your skull. My suggestion to you plug the hair dryer in and take a nice warm bath with it you Blight on the Human race!
