Don’t Shoot: Chris Brown, Nelly, & Trey Songz Protest Michael Brown Shooting

Wale, Chris Brown, Nelly, Lil Mama, and Bow Wow

The stars took the field for a good cause. Following last month’s kickball game, Chris Brown and Quincy teamed up to host a charity flag football game at Jack Kemp Stadium at Occidental College in L.A. on Saturday.

Team Breezy, which included Game, Wale, Tyga, Trey Songz, Bow Wow, and Omarion, defeated Team Quincy 42-21.

There was plenty of action off the field as well. Despite reports that they broke up, Chris was seen cozying up to his old flame Karrueche, who was all smiles as Chris put his arms around her. He later posted an Instagram photo of them together in the car.

At the end of the game, Missouri native Nelly got on the mic and asked everyone to put their hands up and say “Don’t Shoot” in protest of the police shooting that left African-American teenager Michael Brown dead in Ferguson, Miss. Chris, Bow Wow, Trey, Lil Mama, Wale, and the rest of the stadium stood in solidarity with their hands up.

“If anybody can sympathize with what my city is going through, it’s this city of L.A. right now on so many levels,” said Nelly, who was wearing a #MikeBrown tank top. “So for that respect alone, I’m asking you, I’m begging you, and I’m pleading for you to just raise your hands for a second.”

    @Val Zinger, maybe he just doesn’t feel/see it that way. and please stop it with the brother/sister – maybe u should start to see everybody in your country as a brother or sister…
    then if you don’t do it, the police won’t do it too. don’t you think?

    but i do not live in your country, so what do i know, right?

    @alrightythen, Yes, it is typical to hold your hands up and ask the police not to shoot.

    You tried it. You failed.

    alrightythen Reply:

    @*sigh*, Nope I got the last laugh. Now you have the top of a epicfailed moment. black people are so typical about crying wolf, using the BLACK-CARD, plays victim, black people DON’T carry guns, black people Don’t sell drugs, black don’t use drugs, black people don’t start fights, black people don’t have sex, black are so innocence, black are never guilty, black people don’t need money. i can keep goin on and on.

    @arno, Go slit your fucking throat. Enough of you Uncle Toms and your deflection tactics. Racist whites are going to hate you regardless of how you look, how you act or how much education you have.

    *sigh* Reply:

    @Rachel, You are part of the problem and you don’t even realize it; or you realize it and you just don’t care.

    No one is saying progressing will stop a racist from being racist – just like someone evolving their mindset won’t stop you from choosing to stay ignorant.

    It would take too long and be too wasted an effort to explain this to someone like you, who is obviously content with their hate. You’re as bad as the racists you hate, and likely are a racist yourself. That hatred and closed-mindedness is toxic.

    *sigh* Reply:

    @arno, I actually get where you’re coming from. The problem is that to too many people, it’ll always only be “them” that’s the problem. Black folks will never change as a people if they don’t get their own house in order first. If they’re not united, how can they effectively combat this type of thing.

    Seems like the only thing to “unify” is when someone outside the community does something. Meanwhile, the community is rotting from the inside. You don’t send sick soldiers to fight a war.

    So many people don’t get that, so they respond with anger at the fact that anyone could so much as insinuate that there’s anything wrong. Outside persecution IS wrong and needs to be fought, but the modern day black person stands on even weaker foundations than the ones did during the Civil Rights Era.

    @arno, I agree with you so much….How many Black Men this weekend got killed by others Black Men? If a White person or cop don’t do it, then it will not make the news.

    @SMDH, Here we go ignorance at it’s finest. You didn’t even fucking know Mike to be calling him a ‘low life criminal’.I didn’t know him either but fuck out of here with that bullshit. You’re the type of person to believe everything the media throws at you even though the truth is right in front of you.

    *sigh* Reply:

    @Danni j, A lot of people, if not most, on this site, where they devote far, far, far more energy arguing over Rihanna vs Beyonce or “your fave could never” or Nicki-this or Lil Kim that, won’t get it.

    They do not care. I repeat, they do not care. They care about artists who will never know them, and they care even more about arguing about said artists.

    The solution to all this is right there in their faces but they’ll never see it.

    On the real, I knew him. He was very disrespectful on the daily, always high, very quarrelsome. I didn’t know he was out of lockup. However, him being shot to death is still devastating. This is someone I watched growing up. He will answer for his actions on the other side. What can we learn down here from this. I am not sure who the officer is but if it is who I think it is, he is very excessive and military trained. He will get his due.
