David Banner reflects on the fact that these tragedies happen everyday in black communities. Banner believes there isn’t a peaceful route to go about at this point. He said,”The difference between being a cop and being black is that I can’t choose to be black or not.” Police officers choose their profession and now are taking advantage. Banner wants all rappers, actors and others to get together to be more powerful. He fears for lives everyday and tells Smiley that a strategy needs to be made offline amongst entertainers without any media presence.
