Remembering 3 Little Girls…For Women’s History Month

Shout out to Pittsburgh artist Jasiri X who comes with a heartfelt thoughtful joint that focuses on the plight of 3 young girls who were brutally slain…

Here’s what Jasiri penned about the women

For Woman’s History Month we wanted to shed light on how violent this society is especially towards woman and girls. “Three Little Girls” tells the stories of the senseless murders of Christina Taylor Green who was killed during the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Brisenia Flores who was gunned down by anti-immigrant militia intent on starting a race war, and Aiyana Jones who shot to death while asleep in her home, by the Detroit Police Department, while they were filming a reality TV show.

I realize these are sad stories, but how can we not be moved to action by the cold-blooded killings of innocent little girls? We have to begin to take an unflinching look at a culture that continues to glorify guns, bombs, and war and sees violence and aggression as the only solutions to its problems.

Written by Jasiri X and featuring 10 year old Hadiyah Yates, “Three Little Girls” was produced by GM3 and directed by Paradise Gray.

    Beautiful song and video.

    It’s about innocent victims, but may I also pay respect to the women and girls who have done wrong things, trying to survive in this society. I’ve been bullied by my mother and rejected by my family for twenty years so although I’ve always been innocent of everything I’ve been accused of doing and being, having been isolated all that time I’ve come across many women who weren’t innocent anymore. Sadly, once you have no allies you have no voice, and then you’re fair game for everybody. But everyone should be protected and defended, that’s the only way forward.

    I work with intellectually disabled people and one thing I’ve noticed is that they have difficulties navigating the social fabric, whereas so-called normal people have a hard time navigating the spiritual fabric. Manipulation and following the crowd seem to be as necessary for the standard population as breathing, which is a disability on a deeper level. People are people, and we don’t need to dominate or obey each other.
