Hi friends
Thanks for stopping in, and I hope you are having a great night!

I had to share this tremendously powerful video regarding race issues in America.

The current atmosphere breaks my heart. I think humans are so creative, capable, deep, and tremendous beings. It's hard to see us stuck in such a base and superficial level when it comes to human relationships. U.S. race relations is an issue that I have spent a lot of time thinking about, discussing, reading up on, and it is one I care about. I've wanted to write a thread about it here, in hopes to discuss some of the ideas I've encountered if anyone is interested in an open discussion on race. Luckily for me (lol, just kidding- I'll probably still write up a thread at some point because there is more to the issue than a song can say) Joyner Lucas's new song I'm Not A Racist sums up a lot of interesting ideas on the issue, and in a very powerful way.

Joyner Lucas is really, really talented. He's a 29 year old rapper from Massachusets, born Gary Lucas, and his music has a positive message. I'd like to hear what you think of his words. (Also... the video is brilliant--the end is just great.)



Enjoy the rest of your night/day!

It's a different song unless it plays out to the end!

because casting a whole race as superior, inferior, subjugated, privileged, is stereotyping and removes the personal responsibility of the individual to better his situation and the world around him.

I agree completely. I find the song brings up so many different viewpoints which are held by people these days- and they are all racist.

I also think the legal system and maybe the education system (which hit the poor communities the hardest) could use a huge revamping to the benefit of everyone.

in the mean time we have affirmative action, SJW brigades, white and black supremacists crapping all over everything.

Woah I am really looking forward to it. That first link (all I've gotten to so far) is very interesting stuff.

Yes the video was brilliant.

I actually saw this a few days ago and ended up listening to some of his other songs as well. The guy is pretty special. Super talented.

And considering the state of rap right now, what a breath of fresh air.

Good night you you too, my friend


Also, this has got to be one of the best beats I've heard in a while!

He absolutely is a breath of fresh air- a great musician (love the beats too) with smart and thoughtful music. What's not to love?

Have you heard his remixes of Panda and Mask Off? He killed it!
