If the real courts won't do anything… maybe the court of public opinion will.

We really hope the proximity of these senseless deaths finally lead to some real change.

As you've probably heard by now, Alton Sterling was the first of two black men to be shot and killed by Police in America so far this week.

The 37-year-old father-of-five was selling CDs outside a store when two Baton Rouge, Louisiana cops responded to a call and began aggressively handling Alton before shooting him in the back while he was already restrained and pinned on the ground.

Obviously, most Americans took issue with the killing — especially since officers Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake II were caught on camera using brutal force — and celebrities are no different.

While most celebs immediately took to social media to voice their grief over the loss, Drake decided to take his time to pen a touching letter to Alton's family on Wednesday.

In the emotional Instagram post, the rapper noted that while he doesn't know exactly how to push the Black Lives Matter movement forward, he's confident an open and "honest dialogue" will get things started!
