When discussing the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and others who’ve suffered a similar fate at the hands of corrupt police, the most saddening fact is that it won’t be the last time it happens. Rapper Joyner Lucas reaffirms that notion with a chillingly truthful visual for his thought provoking track “Dear America.”

Lucas’ powerful messaging is accompanied by nearly five minutes worth of footage showing police either brutally beating, shooting, or murdering individuals. And that’s what’s been caught on camera. Commentary like this is needed now that the topic isn’t as prevalent on social networks (a major catalyst in effectively spreading the word) as it was a month ago.

Get a little history lesson below by pressing place.
