You have three seconds to determine if this is a real gun. Time’s up

December 2020

Regarding the seven young Black men arrested at gunpoint by Ottawa Police while attempting to film a video, let’s point the blame where it belongs.

Ottawa Police reportedly were responding to a “person with a gun” call.

I personally don’t care that Chris Simba claims the guns were in the cars by the time police arrived. Why did they have them in the first place? If Simba had bothered to secure permits for the film shoot and advised the police of their intentions, maybe none of this would have happened.

If the current incarnation of Rap music isn’t about promoting a thug lifestyle, then why was it necessary to have guns, even prop guns, in the music video in the first place?

Simba states, “We’re good kids. We’re kids with futures. Some of us have scholarships, some of us have passions.” Well, apparently none of them have any brains.

I hope this serves as a lesson to them.
