St. Louis Rapper Thi'sl Organizes "Let Your Voice Be Heard" Forum In Wake Of Michael Brown Shooting

Exclusive: Thi'sl says he wants to provide an open public forum to give a voice to the area's youth and young adults.

St. Louis rapper Thi’sl has helped organize "Let Your Voice Be Heard," a public forum for youth and young adults to discuss the Michael Brown shooting and its aftermath.  

Doors are slated to open for the "Let Your Voice Be Heard" forum today (August 15) at 6:30 pm CST at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church at 5515 Dr. Martin Luther King Drive, St Louis, MO 63112. The event is scheduled to begin at 7 pm CST.

"The cry of the youth and young adult of our generation is that no one is listening to us,” Thi'sl says during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "I wanted to use the space and platform that I have to allow them to be heard peacefully about the Mike Brown situation. Not just to be heard, but also that they may hear messages of hope from people in their community and hear a plan about moving forward.” 

Brown, a Ferguson, Missouri, teen, was reportedly shot and killed by police Saturday (August 9).

Furguson is about 13 miles northwest of downtown St. Louis. 

J. Cole, Killer Mike, Big Boi and Nelly are among the rappers who have commented on the shooting of Brown.

The flyer for "Let Your Voice Be Heard” is as follows:

    Dr. Farrah Gray Asian Interviewer: "Can you address their concerns Mr.Chang?" MR. CHANG: "The concerns of Black people? Yes I can. The fact is, that we all live under a system of White Supremacy. We Asian people look back at our long history of conflict with the European. We observe their strategies and develop our own, in response and in kind. There is no need for loud mass movements on our part, because we intend to overtake them in time, through action and personal sacrifice". Asian INTERVIEWER: "And the Black man?" MR. CHANG: "He does not count into our situation. He is simply here. We do not hate the Black man. We just love the Asian man most. Real love--not cliche. We want to see Asian man happy, so we employ him. We eat together. We spend time with each other. We want his kids to be educated, so we invest in our own schools that offer our children the technical abilities to change the world's power structure in our favor. We want to see the Asian man safe, so we purchase and organize our own communities. We want him to remain Asian, so we reduce the outside influence of others ideologies and cultures. While he fought to sniff behind the White man, the Black man has had the opportunity and every right in the world to do the same, but he chooses to indict people like me for not hiring him over my own brothers. For me to do this would be foolish and that would not be Asian love. In contrast, the Black man will fight for the right to be up under everyone else other than other Black people who he should feel the most love for. If our indifference to their situation make us racist, then what would you call the Black man's indifference to his own situation?" www.FarrahGray.com

    I sincerely hope that this is NOT a shameful attempt at gaining publicity for this rapper and that he truly is serious about this.

      I agree that painting him in a false light only allows people to discredit you. His family's lawyers have all but admitted that he had troubles in his past. However the point is that no matter what kind of person he was, when he put his hands up and surrendered it should have ended there. What transpired after that was murder.
