Frank Ocean Raises Questions In The Aftermath Of Michael Brown’s Shooting

The singer weighed in with a new tumblr post.

After artists like J. Cole and Childish Gambino weighed in on the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of Michael Brown, Frank Ocean is speaking up in the conversation.

In a tumblr post, the singer included an image with a lengthy caption. The photo showed Highway Patrol captain Ron Johnson standing at a podium during a Thursday press conference, with the state’s governor, Jay Nixon, behind him, as well as a young black female and an older black male.

The Odd Future member questioned the sincerity of what he saw.

You see that black woman standing up there? I wonder if she was called to stand behind the governor because she’s black. I wonder if i’m supposed to think Missouri’s gov’t is pro-black because of her being stood up there with those other black men being all black and everything. I wonder if she was off the clock while she stood up there. If she was off the clock..then i wonder if she was getting paid for her time off like the guy who shot Michael 8 times. What’s that guy’s name by the way?

Early on Friday (August 15), the police identified Brown’s shooter.
