Wale Visits Baltimore High School
DC Rapper speaks with teens.
Wale took it upon himself to visit a Baltimore High School on the first day since schools reopened after the the rioting that occurred on Monday. His mission was to speak to the youth and to let them know they are not alone in what it is that they are feeling since the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody.
The Washington, DC rapper also spoke about his experiences with systematic inequalities when he was a teenager as well as today as a millionaire… Unfortunately, it seems to be more of the same, regardless of the economic differences.
Hip Hop has been stepping up to the plate lately when it comes to the injustices that many minorities face still today in 2015. From the Mike Brown situation in Ferguson, Missouri to the Eric Garner occurrence in New York City, many artists are finally using the platform that they have been provided to hopefully bring some social change.
Unfortunately, it has been in times where we need to step up. Check the videos below.
