(FreshAsFrankie) Meek Mill should be expecting a visit from Rev. Al Sharpton on Monday, November 28, according to the New York Daily News. “I think this is about an injustice that is representative of many young men of color that face an abuse of a probation or parole system,” Sharpton stated during a gathering at the headquarters of his National Action Network (NAN) in Harlem. Sharpton is meeting with Meek as part of a larger effort to see the Philly rapper’s case receive a new hearing.
Sharpton said further:
I think what’s happening with Meek Mill is something that the National Action Network has always fought, and I hope that me going there is going to raise the pressure on the issue and help begin a drive-by us in supporting others and demanding a new hearing for him and a new judge.
Al Sharpton shares the sentiment with many others that believe Meek Mill represents a larger systemic issue and according to Rev. Sharpton, “he can be an example of how we correct that.”
