    On April 27, 2015, IDF soldier Damas Pakada, of Ethiopian descent, was assaulted by a police officer. While the officer was ultimately cleared of attacking him for racial reasons, the filmed attack went viral, sparking protests by Ethiopian youth across Israel against police brutality and perceived discrimination, with some turning violent.

For them, hip hop is way to define their identity, which was erased since the Jewish Ethiopian community came to Israel. And it’s also a way to get out of where they live.
