I don’t know if we know the value of a life for real, because when you take somebody’s life, dog — you’re setting back their family. You’re setting the whole lineage back — generations.
What I mean by that is, I know for a fact my grandma was working for my mom and for me and my brother. I don’t even have kids — I’m definitely already working for my kids and my kids’ kids. When you take somebody’s life, you’re setting all that back. And for what? For something that could have been communicated better?”
Sean addressed that he had his own communication issues and continued.
”I have noticed that in men, and in black men, we’re taught to communicate certain ways. We’re taught to be tough, we’re taught to stand tough and get your revenge and retaliate through violence and all that type of shit, right?
“But you know, we gonna keep losing kings! Gonna keep losing Martin Luther Kings. Gonna keep losing Malcolm Xs. We gonna keep losing Nipsey Hussles. And for what?”
