Rapper Jay-Z is funding violent protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson
A black celebrity, with close ties to Obama and the 5%er black power religious cult, has been funding violent protesters in Ferguson and Baltimore.
Jay-Z performed at campaign events for Barak Obama’s Senate Campaign, despite his crude, vulgar, anti-white, and misogynistic lyrics. He was also active in Obama’s presidential campaign.
Jay-Z and his celebrity wife Beyonce have a combined net worth of $1 Billion. He co-owns the Brooklyn Nets. Jay-Z is known for holding public parties in which bouncers are instructed to bar any white people from getting in.
Rap mogul Jay Z has quietly used his wealth to post bail for people arrested in protests across the United States against police excesses, an author close to him said.
Dream Hampton, a writer and activist who worked with Jay Z on his 2010 memoir “Decoded,” made the revelations in a series of messages on Twitter that she later deleted but were reproduced by the hip-hop magazine Complex.
“When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I… hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson (and he) wired tens of thousands” of dollars within minutes, read one tweet.
She also tweeted that Jay Z and his pop superstar wife Beyonce wrote a “huge check” to support the burgeoning “Black Lives Matter” movement aimed at improving police treatment of African Americans.
Protests spread last year after a white police officer shot dead unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
Major demonstrations, some turning violent, erupted in recent weeks in Baltimore after another African-American man, Freddie Gray, died from a spinal injury sustained in police custody.
Hampton later wrote that she deleted the tweets because Jay Z “would be pi-issed to see I was offering evidence” that he is taking action.
The tweets appeared aimed at defending Jay Z and Beyonce, who have faced accusations from some activists that they have only paid lip service to causes without tapping into the couple’s estimated $1 billion net worth.
