Nick Cannon Releases Powerful Spoken Word Video

On Sunday, Nick Cannon released “Don’t Be Distracted,” a powerful spoken word poem where he shared his thoughts, feelings, and frustrations about how we are distracted from the things that are really plaguing the black community.

In the two-minute video posted on his Facebook page, Nick addresses everything from police brutality to the controversy surrounding the Oscars.

Damn! Look what they did to Oscar.
Nah, not another trophy rant.
I’m talking Oscar Grant, Sandra Bland, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray.
Why we trust what the news say anyway?
It’s blasphemous, don’t get distracted by these lottery tickets and statues.
It’s just fake gold and plastic.
