Drake Writes Powerful Letter After Shooting of Alton Sterling

Drake has written a powerful letter, published to his Instagram account, after the murder of Alton Sterling at the hands of police in Louisiana earlier this week.

This week, another black man, Philando Castile, was also gunned down by an officer.

“It’s impossible to ignore that the relationship between black and brown communities and law enforcement remains as strained as it was decades ago. No one begins their life as a hashtag. Yet the trend of being reduced to one continues,” Drake wrote. He also confided that he is concerned for his family, friends, and any other human who could fall victim to the pattern.
