Heartless.G – HoodLife [Video]
Toronto, ON – This is “HoodLife” by Heartless.G. The video was posted with this note: “This video has been made not to glorify street life but to give the world a glimpse into the realities Toronto youth are faced with on a daily basis. In the 1960’s during the civil rights movement many positive community initiatives where destroyed by Jim Crow, leaving a void in our communities. Now Jim Crow wants to destroy our youth in 2010 by racially profiling, community neglect and making whole sale arrests. Minorities make up close to 85% of the prison system and less than 10% of Canada’s total population. Freedom of speech and self expression is necessary for self definition and growth. To the media blood means drugs, guns and negativity…to the streets it simply means family “I have a dream…that one day we will be judged not for the colour of our skin, the braids in our hair or the coulor we choose to wear, but for the content of our characters.”
