Can I just say that I really appreciate Ice Cube doing this video. The senseless murder of teen football star Jamiel Shaw Jr., as well as the countless others shown throughout this video, needs to be questioned and put out there for the world to see what's happening right here in America. It's like 'strange fruit' happening all over again. Cube and director Benny Boom cleverly hint at this with the shot of the pictures hanging from the tree.

It's seems like the mainstream media ignores these stories like they are yesteryears news. I guess since it happens so often, they don't feel the need to really have to report on it but these kids are dying out here and ending up in jail for the most trivial of circumstances. I'm actually doing a film in an effort to help divert some of the nonsense these kids are involving themselves in. This must stop!!
