As the world awaits the grand jury verdict in the Michael Brown case, Tef Poe (aka Kareem Jackson), a St. Louis rapper turned activist, has released a song that targets Missouri governor Jay Nixon and other figures of authority who have failed the people of Ferguson.

“Jay Nixon is blatantly standing on the wrong side of history with zero regard for the pain we currently feel as a community,” he wrote. “He is not our friend. He is not our comrade. He is not our governor. He does not work for us. He works for those that have used institutionalized racism to kill us.”
