Jay-Z's Roc Nation has released a letter to state officials demanding justice for Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man who was gunned down in cold blood by two white men in south Georgia in February.

The letter was addressed to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, state Attorney General Chris Carr and the current prosecutor, Tom Durden, district attorney of the Atlantic Judicial Circuit.

"As a society we can no longer pretend that the racial inequities, which exist in every facet of our lives, don't invariably lead down the path to poverty, violence and death," the letter reads.

The father and son who murdered Arbery has evaded any repercussions from the law until the shocking video of his killing went viral, sparking national outrage.

"To even think about breaking this cycle we need you to protect the process and preserve the fairness of the trial," the letter continues.
