Warning:This video contains strong language.

After learning about the grand jury's announcement Monday in Ferguson, Run the Jewels rapper Killer Mike delivered a very powerful speech to the crowd at his show in St. Louis.

He paid tribute to both the peaceful protesters and "those who could not hold their anger in," adding that "riots are only the language of the unheard."

The rapper talked about race and poverty, choking up about the news which he says he expected.

"I have a twenty-year-old son and a twelve-year-old son and I am so afraid for them," he said.

This summer, Killer Mike also wrote an op-ed on the incident for "Billboard," in which he stated "Whatever this country is willing to do to the least of us, it will one day do to us all."

A 50-foot Norwood spruce in Reading, PA is the focus of ridicule this holiday season, with locals calling it "sad," "nasty," "pathetic," "ugly" and even comparing it to Charlie Brown's disaster of a tree.

"If there was a squirrel right now looking for a place to live in the Winter," said one resident. "It won't even go into this tree."

"I've never seen a tree look so horrible in all my life," said another person. "That tree is atrocious."
