This is video of an incredible speech given by rapper Mike Bigga at a church rally before he and Big Boi from Outkast went to protest the murder of Troy Davis outside Georgia's death row.
Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh exhibited that kind of passion at their Welcome Party last summer. If only they could have shown that same kind of passion about Troy Davis.
Can you imagine the impact it could have on society if LeBron got in front of a camera and said, "Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven..." in response to a question about how many states should abolish the death penalty?
Benjamin Jealous, president of the NAACP, said if 10 more states abolish the death penalty then the federal government can be petitioned to prohibit capital punishment in America. That's the only way to ensure there won't be another Troy Davis.
I hope that's something the Three Kings become passionate about.
