White teens who kill receive kind words and humanizing obituary-esque headlines surrounding their crimes, whereas black teens who are killed are covertly demonized or belittled and no worth is attached to the stories covering their death.
This is the world we live in.
It’s quite a privilege to actually go around, play music and have so many people go to the shows. To be able to share that with people, it’s a bizarre thing; you write on your own and then you share it with people every night. The fame side for me is funny because it’s really nice and really positive in many ways. It’s really nice to get recognized by people and I think we all live our lives in the eyes of other people to such a huge extent anyway, all of us do. But it’s funny that people recognize you quite a lot for what you do. [x]/[x]
