Nas writes an open letter to the young mutants, I mean young warriors in Chicago.

When is this lower tier pacifying, excuse making, absence of personal responsibility ish going to stop??
You can expect us to take this open letter apart and get into why some of what Nas says here IS part of the problem. Until then, tell us what you think, and also take a look at some random comments left by folks around the net.

"Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars! Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool.

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But....

We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Fila sneakers, and name plate chains. Deaths over "he say, she say"!!!!! "I'm from this block or I'm from that block", or "my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay"!!!

I remember feeling like I was the hardest "n*gga" breathing. And I couldn't wait to prove it. But let's think. What are we really proving?? And proving what to who?? Everybody knows Chicago breeds the strongest of the strong but I just feel, me, being ya brother from another state feels your pain as if I grew up with you in ya very own household.

You have the ability and mindpower to change they way we are looked at. Look who's watching us young warriors, look who's throwing us in jail constantly, look at the ignorance in the world. Look at the racist dogs who love to see us down. Loving to bury us in the ground or in jail where we continue this worthless war on one another.

Young warriors.... We are WASTING more and more time. We gotta get on our jobs and take over the world. Cuz this movie left the theaters years ago, Juice, Menace, Boys n the Hood , Blood n Blood Out, Belly!

When we see each other why do we see hatred? Why were we born in a storm, born soldiers, WARRIORS....and instead of building each other up we are at war with each other.. May the soul of this young person find peace with the almighty. I'm with you young warriors. You're me and I'm you. But trust me! you are fighting the wrong war."

Here are some random quotes:
"i think this is some bullshit!!.. they are saying that this kid was a honor roll student and he was walking home and got caught in the fight...
but you can see in the video that the dude was swinging on somebody when he got wacked with the board. he was out their fighting too. he was no innocent victim.
and why only sentence 3 teens?? about 20 stomped him. and life in jail for this shit??? it was a all out brawl. they should be doing no more than 5 years.
chicago losses again
thats 4 lives gone. and probably more because somebody snitched."

"some kids made a little memorial with bears and baloons and candles for the boy
.. and they burned it up.. smh this whole city is crazy the streets and the laws"

"everyone was out their fighting. why take 3 out of the whole group and take away their lives.
more than 3 people stomped him. and he was out their fighting to. so it should be self defense.
he got hiself into it"
