The non-indictment of Darren Wilson in the killing of Mike Brown and now the non-indictment of officer Daniel Pantaleo in the killing of Eric Garner have become emblematic of the ongoing tensions between police officers and the Black community.
The outcome of recent grand jury decisions has caused a lot of us to reexamine our relationship with our community, but our community’s relationship with the nation.
In recent weeks, many have used social media to demand that celebrities and public figures alike vocalize their support of the Black community and take a stand for injustice. Some celebs have…some haven’t.
In the wake of the grand jury’s decision to not indict the officer responsible for killing Eric Garner earlier this afternoon, Azealia Banks used it as an opportunity to single out fellow rapper Iggy Azalea for her lack of public support.
Do you think Iggy Azalea should have to speak on the issue? Let us know your thoughts!
UPDATE: Iggy has responded.
