After news of the decision to not indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Mike Brown, protests all across the country ensued, with Ferguson, MO being the epicenter of these protests. In the midst of the marches and protests that occurred, TMZ caught up with Macklemore, who was marching with a group of people with their hands up in his Seattle hometown, chanting "Hands up, don't shoot." Appearing as if he did not want to be seen, when asked why he was marching, Macklemore replied: "Mike Brown. Solidarity. It's about Mike Brown, it's not about me."
