Slink Johnson shares his thoughts on the situation in Ferguson, MO., and says the news has hit him differently since he has a teenage son. The “Black Jesus” star adds that the nation can get what they want if they control the anger and rage they have toward the situation.
The conversation then turns to the Rodney King beating in the early ’90s, and Slink says he can see the similarities in the Ferguson case. However, today, Slink believes that people should be constructively fighting for the cause, along with being passionate to live and prosper.
When asked about white celebrities who embrace black culture, like Justin Bieber and Katy Perry, not going to Ferguson, Slink says they don’t have a way to “constructively channel their passion.” He ends the conversation by saying that he feels most of them are passionate about the culture, but risk damaging their reputation if they can’t execute the demonstration properly.
