Ahmaud Arbery: Jay-Z Pens Open Letter To Georgia Officials

If not for the work of social justice warriors, the men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery would still be free men.

Today, Jay-Z is using his voice to ensure that justice is delivered to the suspects by penning an open letter to Georgia officials.

The rapper teamed up with a number of Roc Nation artists to deliver this message…


By now, we’ve all seen the crime’s disturbing video, so the facts here are not in doubt: He was unarmed and innocent and the victim of a hate crime. Which is why we call upon you today, as official leaders of the Great State of Georgia, and with the entire world watching, to ensure that a fair trial is conducted, as that can only lead to the appropriate felony convictions of both McMichaels. We also implore you to charge William Bryan as an armed accomplice to the crime.

William Bryan is the man who filmed the slaying.

The letter adds…

We truly appreciate that you have arrested and charged these men with Ahmaud’s murder, and are hopeful that a trial and conviction will show that, in the state that gave us Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and has been the site of the best and worst of the Civil Rights movement, Dr. King’s words do ring true: ‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.'”

      “We truly appreciate that you have arrested and charged these men with Ahmaud’s murder.”

      Say “I” not “we.” You don’t speak for all. This hate crime happened in February and these men are just now getting arrested for their crime, not because the video is new evidence; the Georgia police seen this video months ago. They are getting arrested because the video has made traction and has brought a light to the state of the Georgia officials and police force at the height of an election year.

      I don’t “appreciate” that they finally arrested these men. Congrats you did your fûcking job when someone had to leak a video in order for you to do it.

      Instead of asking for a fair trial. Ask for the removal of government officials and Georgia police chief and police officers so not only can Ahmaud have a fair trial, but so shît like this can’t be over looked again!

      Jay Z your plea letter is elementary status at best, but you’ll get a pat on the back from the black community because you gave “acknowledgement”

    Great sentiment but if nothing else this justice has shown is that the justice system as yet proven to be corrupt and rampant with racism. The recruiting requirements for police officers, commissioners etc…. The whole district attorney office needs to be revamped a lot of people need to be getting fired. Black people need to turn up to these local elections yall need to know who is being elected as DA. It’s not just about trump it’s about rooting out corrupt mayors, governors etc…
