I can count 5 parents in the last 3 hours who have text me and said my child just asked me “AM I GOING TO DIE”?!?

The 30-year-old singer, who is the mother of 11-year-old Daniel Julez Smith, Jr., followed up:

The TRAUMA that is being passed on to us, and OUR CHILDREN by this non stop murder of our brothers and sisters is sickening…

Castile’s deadly encounter with police during a traffic stop on Wednesday in the St. Paul suburb of Falcon Heights, Minnesota, comes on the heels of Tuesday’s killing of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

On Thursday morning, Minnesota Governor, Mark Dayton requested a Justice Department investigation into the investigation, according to reports.
