Cole Beasley speaks out
In a four-slide long message to the current landscape of racial injustice, Beasley injected some of his life experiences along with a call to action.
“As a father of three biracial kids and someone who loves to rap, I am embarrassed really,” the statement read. “Growing up as a white kid, I never had to go through the hardships that black people endure every day in this country,” he added.
Later in his statement, Beasley admitted that he has been part of the problem.
“I have remained ignorant as much as it kills me to say. Not only have I failed black people, but I have failed my sons and my daughter up to this point, by turning the other way.”
In the final paragraphs of his statement, Beasley announced that he would be doing something about it. Partnering with 9inty-10, a nonprofit foundation aimed to help underprivileged kids and athletes through sports and proper exercise.
Additionally, Beasley recorded an album titled “United Hates of America” where he states that “every cent made from downloads and streams will be donated to the charity”.
