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.
