Jay-Z recently sounded off on the George Zimmerman verdict.
In a two-part interview posted on his YouTube channel, Jay expressed outrage at the blatant racism surrounding the trial and verdict. But he also expressed hope that a younger generation will learn and grow from witnessing this injustice.
He also called George Zimmerman a “f—ing mall cop.”
“This guy’s not a professional,” Jay Z said. “First of all, you’re not a professional to profile someone. Professionals are taught not to profile … This guy is a novice. This guy is a f–king mall cop.”
“You know, I was really angry about it, you know, that the thing that we all knew that there was still a bit of racism in America, but for it to be so blatant, it was like, if you just ask the question — ask yourself the question — didn’t Trayvon have the right to stand his ground?” Jay Z said. “He was being chased, he was being chased and fought back. You know, he may have won, that doesn’t mean he’s a criminal — he won! If you chase me and you try to attack me and I defend myself, how can I be in the wrong? How is that right?”
