Celebs Attend Intense Town Hall Meeting For Change
After five days of protests, hundreds gathered at the House of Hope church in Decatur, Georgia on Tuesday for a “Strategy For Change” town hall meeting about race, police brutality, and what’s next to invoke change.
“We’re getting a chance to really see what these people have been doing to our people since the beginning,” Jeezy said.
Panelists shared a wide variety of opinions on improving conditions in the black community, following five nights of protests in Atlanta.
“We have got to find a way to get on one accord in our approach,” said Dr. Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King Jr.
“The white bank is not going to give us a loan. We need to open up more black banks,” said rapper 2 Chainz.
Rapper David Banner suggested police officers need to face financial or even physical consequences for bad behavior.
Singer Lyfe Jennings disagreed, and the two had to be separated.
“I’m tired and am glad that black people are fired up. They should be,” Banner told Channel 2’s Matt Johnson.

Lyfe took to social media to address his passionate debate with David Banner saying:
They see two men arguing, I see two men that love their people passionate about a solution. They see battle for position, I see battle for resolution…they want it to look like we were about to fight that’s why they only gave u a piece of the video..think people.
