Nas Believes America Fell Asleep at the Wheel on Racial Equality

Following the racially motivated shooting at a Charleston, South Carolina church, Nas has penned a letter to fans examining racism in America. In a long Instagram message accompanying an abstract painting of an American flag, the rapper says that our country's "biggest export" is a culture largely derived from African-Americans. Nas asks "How can we be the ones responsible for America's biggest export & fear for our lives like we shouldn't belong here," .
That's supposed to mean MORE than just words but the actions of late just don't speak to what we are supposed to stand for. Nas' message is an extension of comments he made to Vibe about the Charleston shooting and the roots of racism in this country saying, "Racism is rotting America, It's been rotting America since America's inception. So this is a very serious time that we’re moving into in 2015."
