Kanye West on Crime



Recognize racial disparity in verdicts & prison sentences

Reform the legal system to provide true justice, equitable for all citizens, regardless of race or ability to defend oneself in court. Recognize the disparity in verdicts & prison sentences, caused by the lack of financial resources or legal assistance.

There will not be differing weights and differing measures. -- Proverbs 20:10

Reform the approach to policing in a manner that treats all Americans the same, regardless of race, color, or ethnicity. Refocus police forces on real crime. Eliminate federal sentencing guidelines that tie the hands of judges, resulting in ridiculous sentences for the most minor offenses.

We will speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. -- Proverbs 31:8

One of my to-do lists is to end police brutality

One of my to-do lists is to end police brutality. The police are people, too. In the George Floyd case, there was a Black guy that went to jail and it was his first day on the force. If it's your first day on the force and this cop with 18 violations already starts filing out, are you going to jump in front of that person and lose your job that same day? He probably didn't realize that the cop was going to take it that far. I'm one of the few Black people that would speak openly like this.
