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.'”
