In the wake of NFL players across the country taking a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick, protesting police brutality on minorities and in response to President Trump’s negative rhetoric on the subject matter, Nick Cannon has released a controversial spoken word piece voicing his opinion on the matter. The four minute black and white visual features a passionate Cannon sharing his thoughts on everything from confederate flags and statue of Robert E. Lee to minority casualties in the military. Stand For What showcases various images of African Americans being victimized by those in authority, vintage footage of civil rights leaders & more. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
