*Brad Jordan, a.k.a. rapper Scarface of the Geto Boys, recently voiced his opinion on the prevalence of unarmed black men who have been killed by police officers.
“I feel like we’re being hunted, you know? And yeah, I’m not cool with it,” he said Wednesday in an interview with HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill.
“It’s like the society believes what the officers say, and he’s got way more of a reason to lie than we do, than I do. You killed [a] man. And he don’t even get a day in court. Well, not that the judicial system is set up for us to benefit from in any f**king way. You dead on both sides, man. You are.”
Jordan also countered the idea that black people willingly engage with police officers in dangerous situations.
“We see the f**king police and go the other goddamn way, Marc. And you know it. … And watch [the police officer] get off,” he said.
Jordan also had words for the bystanders of all racial backgrounds who stay quiet about police brutality.
“If these people … don’t see that it’s an injustice in the system when it comes to dealing with the minority, then we’re going to continue to have this f**king problem,” he said. “If you see it’s f**ked up, say it’s f**ked up. If you see it’s f**ked up, you’ve got to say it. I don’t give a f**k if you’re white, black, green or brown. You’ve got to say it.”
