Heems Of Das Racist Speaks On Wisconsin Temple Shooting

    Yesterday five men and one woman were killed with three others left in critical condition following a shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisc. The movie theater attack in Aurora, Col. took place only a few weeks ago.

    We reported earlier that the suspected Wisconsin gunman, Wade Michael Page, fronted a hardcore white supremacist band in the past. The New York Times has also confirmed that Page was an army vet, having served in the United Sates military from 1992-98.

    This recent string of massacres is not only a catalog of American gun violence in 2012, but also a tragic sign of where hate and racism are at in a post-9/11 society. Appropriately, Das Racist’s Himanshu Suri (aka Heems)–who’s been forwarding the dialogue on race through his music from the start–had plenty to say via Twitter yesterday. Below you can read some of his posts. [EgoTrip]
