- Come on, sit down.

You want to draw something?

Ah, Byron, stop biting the table.

This going to be my fighter

right here. Come here.

Come on. Come on.


You don't want to fight

me? Come on, let's fight.

Hit me.

Get him, Byron, get him.

He going to be my little

fighter though. For sure.

- Give me five.

- Pow. Bam, bam, bam.


We gon' let them know that we are one.

Enough is enough.

We are one.

We are one.

We are one! We are one!

Say it louder.

- We are one.

Say it louder.

- We are one.

Say it louder.

- We are one.

Say it louder.

- We are one.

Say it louder.

Say it louder.

Say it louder.

I mean, we lost another good brother.

I heard he was starting school on Monday,

I mean, going to college.

This ain't right, man.

We just, we gotta show, we gotta

show our love out here. We got to.

We are one.

We want justice for Mike Mike, Big

Mike, Michael Brown. Y'all hear me?

He got stopped walking,

the same way I got stopped.

From the time I was in junior high.

That was my first experience.

I was 13 years old.

And that dude was walking

down the street doing nothing.

They say he tried to yank away from him.

They shot him one time,

that's a warning shot.

Other than that, no need to shoot no more.

He put his hands up 'cause he

felt he had no other chance.

He was gonna get shot if he kept running.

I want everybody to put their hands

up. This the way we'll be all day long.

- Put your hands all the way up.

- Put your hands up!

I want your hands all the way up

because this how he was when he got shot.
