Wyclef Jean, David Banner, & T.I. Weigh in on Racial Profiling

During a recent taping of BET's 106 & Park, rap artists David Banner and Wyclef Jean gave some insight into racial profiling and the key steps necessary to prevent it. This all stems as a direct result of the Trayvon Martin tragedy.

"What can we do to make sure that this doesn't happen again?", asked Banner, "We can march, we can sing, we can make songs—no we have to do something that means something so this will never happen to another child again."

"We have to find a way to hit America in its pocket or implement laws [against] people who feel like they want to be vigilantes", he continued.

Wyclef Jean, who wore a hoodie in support of Trayvon Martin, also gave his opinion on the matter and provided some advice as well.

"When anybody who has the authority to lock you up or take your life approaches you, the number one thing you have to learn is always remain calm and always speak calm back to the person. Once you start to speak loud, the person's gonna get louder and louder."

Atlanta native and fellow rap artist T.I. called in to speak his thoughts as well.

"I don't think race should ever come into question whenever you're looking to uphold justice and uphold the law."
