Superstar Jennifer Lopez shared a repost from Nas, a soul-stirring cry for justice that strikes hard at the current untenable situation in the country.
As the “young black man” Keedon Bryant, 12, sings poignantly: “I see what’s being done to my kind every day / I’m being hunted as prey / my people don’t want no trouble…”
Jennifer Lopez shifted out of her superstar mode to amplify this cry for justice. JLo’s normal Instagram feed looks more like this:
Keedon Bryant first stirred the nation on an episode of Little Big Shots. The world is watching and hoping he can stir it again with this mournful, moving performance — and that the cry for justice can be not just heard but acted upon.
JLo adding her voice is significant. Nas got half a million views for his posting, but JLo’s account saw more than 750K in just 9 hours.
