*Moved by the senseless beating death of a 16-year-old honor student by gang members in Chicago, rapper Nas has written an open letter to teens who throw away their future by battling each other.

As previously reported, Derrion Albert was repeatedly stomped in the head, punched and beaten with planks in a gang-related brawl outside of his school. Four teens have been arrested in connection with the murder: Silvanus Shannon (19), Eric Carson (16), Eugene Riley (18), and Eugene Bailey (17).

Nas, who lost his close friend Willie “Ill Will” Graham to senseless violence in 1992, wrote the following open letter:

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars! Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool. Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But we chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Filas, and name plate chains. Deaths over 'he say she say'!!!!! 'I’m from this block or I’m from that block”, or 'my moms n pops is f***ed up now the whole world gotta pay!!!

I forgot to look and see your name on the slavery registry, oh yeah, YOU WEREN'T THERE!!! You are so misguided. We as a people (blacks) will never get reperations, the Jewish people will never get over the halacaust, and Native Americans will never get their land back. Move on with your life and let go of the hatred you feel. My great grandmother was a slave, she worked for this white family raising their kids while trying to raise her own as well. I am not full of hate from it. I was never a slave and don't deserve anything. I work for what I have and appreciate all that I have achieved. I love and respect my family for all the racism we have endured not even 40 years ago, but I refuse to let all that make me a bitter small minded imbicile like you are.

I never said anything about getting any reperations....I am NOT looking for any of that. I just can't stand it when whitey is in total denial about racism and how whitey is the one responsible for ALL racism in this country because whitey started racism by hating on the slave and oppressing them for over 400 years.

We are getting nowhere with the back and fourth comments, What are any of you doing now to help the current situation. The past is messed up yes on all ends. We can only account for our own actions. What can you say that you are doing right now to help the current situation? because back lashing is doing nothing.

Racism started way before 'whitey' and the slave trade. Do you not remember Biblical days? There was racism there, Moses was riduculed because one of his wives was black. There was even a man in the Bible (whose name I do not remember at this time) who had to pretend his wife was a servant because she was black. No 'whitey' didn't invent racism and nor did they invent the wheel. Stop being so racist and then crying racism in the same breath.

This is the same tired argument. "Theres more whites than blacks on welfare." Of course there are you idiot, whites make up 60 % of America. Blacks make up 15%. When you look at it that way blacks are WAY more likely per capita to be on welfare than whites. You cant look at total numbers when one race makes up 60% of the population. But being black im sure math isnt one of your strong points.

Of course they will forget it. They want to make it sound like whitey came over and rounded all the blacks up, when the cold hard truth is they were sold into slavery by their own people. Truth hurts.

Oh of course no body has it worse than tha po' ol black man. boo hoo. Even though a majority of blacks problems are caused by their own community. This article is about 4 black kids murdering another black kid, yet you somehow manage to blame whitey. You people are amazing.

The only people hes helped so far are political donors, and crooked ceo's. Remember the trillion dollars he gave them with no stipulations, that they used to take vacations and give themselves 50 million dollar bonuses. Politicians are all the same. He's just George Bush with a tan.

Pretty much every race and religion at one point have been slaves, or been discriminated against. Blacks were not the first.

Whitey did come over and round up all of the blacks. Who told whitey to buy anyway. He knew it was wrong, yet he did it and brought them back to the US in horrible conditions and treated them like animals...rapped their young and women. Why? White greed? White evilness? Why?

Let us not forget that our own people sold us into slavery. Every man has a price.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Dipshit, whitey comes from different areas. Whitey's have roots in England, Scotland, France, Holland, Italy, Switzerland, and other places, too. Scottish were endentured servants. They were mistreated, just as those with dark skin.

I feel for you. You just don't get it. If you truly feel that whitey has ruined all african americans lives, then why do you not go back to Africa? Do you not realize that just because you may have dark skin, the true Africans won't see you as one of them. Sorry about it, crybaby. But, please shut your piehole.
