Social media was abuzz this past weekend with a powerful video from rapper Prince AE. The St. Louis native is filmed making a speech addressing the conflicts in Ferguson. AE claims that society can only change when we examine our thoughts and cultural beliefs, which we’ve been fed from outside influences.

“We have been brain washed with conditioned thoughts,” says the rapper.

“Thoughts that we have died over, killed over, fought over. But we gotta question them.”

EA tells viewers to open a history book, because history shows us that man has struggled with the same issues since our beginnings. Race, violence, war, politics; none of these things have been the solution to our problems.

After giving some spiritual advice on how to discover what truly matters, EA finished by saying, “man-kind has the opportunity to transform into kind-men.”

Since posting the video up on Facebook, over 16 million people have viewed the video, says EA. Popular website WorldStarHipHop.com also posted the video on their front page. The video can be seen here:
