A Song Tribute to the Victims: #BlackLivesMatter

” I Stand”. Written, sung and produced by Jasmine Nicole.

Video Description:


I decided to write this song after countless unarmed black men were getting killed with absolutely no justice being served. I came to the conclusion that if I’m sitting around and doing nothing, and not making any noise I also am not doing these young men justice. Time and time again these killings are happening, because we have a broken system.

This system allows for murderers to go free by trying to discredit witnesses, and making the public believe that it was justified because they claim the victim “resisted arrest” or by claiming it was “self defense.”

Many people have been killed because of racism and discrimination in America, and it will not change unless we stand up and let them know this is not OK. The value of a person isn’t determined by their skin. I believe that change should start today!!! Please share this video if you Stand for Change in America and fixing a broken system, that has been broken for way too long.

**Disclaimer** In no way am I promoting the killing of cops. This song is about using your VOICE to produce change in our society and change in America.

Special shoutout to my mother and sister who helped me create this video with their ideas and creativity, Thank you for constantly pushing me to finish and release this song and video.”
