I admit: Jasiri X definitely made me look in the mirror with this latest release. And any real man who listens to this will admit we have not done our best in standing up for, defending and protecting our sisters.
According to his BlackYouthProject.com post, Jasiri X, said, "“Dear Marissa” is my apology to Marissa Alexander, a black woman who was sentenced in Florida to 20 years in prison for firing a warning shot at her abusive husband. Her retrial starts in July, and incredibly, she is now facing 60 years in prison. Prosecutor Angela Corey announced she is seeking the maximum sentence of 20 years for 3 counts of assault with a deadly weapon. Please contribute to Marissa Alexander’s legal defense fund by going to Marissa Alexander Freedom Fundraiser. "
The lyrics to “Dear Marissa” are below. Watch the video below as well. Please spread this!
