In a conversation with Ferrari Sheppard, Yasiin Bey shared his thoughts on the tragic events in Paris on Friday night that shocked the world. He also touched on the current state of violence across the world, highlighting the police brutality against Tamir Rice and others.

“Love must and will prevail. I don’t care how corny it sounds. The world has been in a state of emergency. The problem is not Islam [or] organized religion. The problem is people’s lack of compassion and care for themselves and their fellow human beings. We don’t treat each other well. We need to treat each other better.”
