David Banner Says Freddie Gray Is Proof America Has Turned On African-Americans


(AllHipHop News) Rapper David Banner continues to be one of the most outspoken artists on a number of issues, specifically police brutality.

David Banner has weighed in on the recent news that prosecutors in Baltimore decided to drop all charges against the remaining police officers who were accused of causing Freddie Gray’s death.

Gray was killed in April of 2015, when he was handcuffed and placed into the back of a van and taken for a “rough ride” by Baltimore police officers.

“In the case of Freddie Gray, America has clearly shown that it has completely turned its back on Black people,” David Banner told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Apparently, the laws are not the same for the Police. We lose our lives; they get paid vacation. What are Blackbpeople to do about it is a better question!”
