I am SO out done about this sh%t 😡! No matter if this man is a celebrity or not enough is enough! But it IS more upsetting because he is an artist from my town who has YEARS of history and influence in music behind him. BS! #moodymann #313 #detroit #cops #sowrong #notright #highlandparkmichigan #police #lawenforcement @playgrmuziq @normtalleyii @badbeats87 @djminxwomenonwax @djtoneworldwide
According to the deleted post, Dixon was taken to jail and charged with breaking and entering on his own property, “even though I had keys”.
The Black Madonna addressed the disturbing video on Twitter. “Kenny is a great man. He’s a man of peace.”, she said, “We have to stop terrorizing black men. The sound of his voice is something that will haunt.”
Kenny is a great man. He’s a man of peace. We have to stop terrorizing black men. The sound of his voice is something that will haunt. I’m so glad they didn’t shoot. Thank god they didn’t, but fuck this.
Again, black lives matter. Black lives matter.
