Rapper Wale visits Baltimore high school following riots

D.C. rapper Wale and Rev. Jamal Bryant visited students at Frederick Douglass High School on their first day back following violent riots in the city.

"Regardless of what's happened out here, these are the young leaders of tomorrow and they have to look in the mirror and see something better than what they're being perceived as on TV," Wale said. "We need each other. We need our community leaders to come step forward and we need these kids to understand that somebody believes in them. I believe in them, Jamal believes in them and there's a lot of people in this community that believe in these kids." 

Rev. Bryant said Wale traveled from New York to speak to students because he was upset that some people in the city were being labeled as thugs and hoodlums.
