Erin Josey is feeling disappointed!

I will not acknowledge any of the ignorance individually that I’ve seen today in regards to Nipsey Hussle. Posting pictures of him and offering condolences is now deemed fake because some people didn’t know of him prior to his death? Unfortunately it took his death to shed light on who he was as a very knowledgeable man and great rapper to a lot of people.It does not matter if any of us were fans of his music 2 years or 2 days ago. This is a very tragic situation. A man was executed and now his children and girlfriend have to deal with the pain of losing someone they love. Ignorance is a lack of knowledge and as a community we as black people can be so ignorant to what’s going on in this world! I cried last night as I was reading articles and watching videos of him being wheeled to the ambulance. I cried because I asked myself is every black man or woman with a platform that tries to educate the black communities going to be executed? I cried because that could have been my husband, my sons, or even my brothers. Knowledge is power and as long as we continue to operate the way we have for years we will continue to be the most ignorant race in the world. I pray for comfort and peace to all of Nipsey’s family, friends, and loved ones!
