“My hair has been my signature around the world since our careers started hand n hand with being a Baltimore native good,bad, or ugly.”
Unrest across Baltimore has given birth to varies means the people have chosen to make their message heard. While some have turned to a spending shutdown, others have taken up public protest. As for Sisqo … he says he showed his support by having “sacrificed” (his words) his goldie locks.
Check out how Sisqo put it:
“I sacrificed my hair as a symbol of support for the struggle that Baltimore & most inner-city youth face everyday.
It wrenched my heart when I saw the way that we were being portrayed to the world media. The fact that I was unable to march on the streets of my city with my brothers & sisters physically made me feel as if I needed to make a statement that couldn’t be tainted, twisted, or misconstrued.
I have worked with local schools, churches & youth groups in the past. Myself & DRU HILL are working to do more in the future. So hang in there young people…and remember think outside-of-the-box. Be better then the best & always remember intellect over emotion.#Baltimore #FreddieGray”
