“She’s in my mouth… I have to get this out. Sandy Bland. Sandy Bland. Sandy Bland.”

Woman singer Jill Scott couldn’t help but #sayhername when she performed to a sold out crowd in Brooklyn on Thursday, Jul. 23.

The next day, Scott spoke with Essence on the matter, saying she is “disturbed on a cellular level,” and expressed she is “angry and concerned for us as a country.”

Do you agree with her last point?

“At this point, it’s terrorism inside the United States. We’re one of the biggest fighters against terrorism but it’s insideour own country. We should be ashamed of ourselves. Clearly something is going terribly wrong when a woman gets pulled over for a traffic citation and ends up murdered.”
