Common’s New Single With Stevie Wonder “Black America” Addresses Police Violence Towards Black People [Video]
Common just dropped another inspiring visual called “Black America” which puts police brutality on blast and takes a closer look at the boys in blue murdering more unarmed Black men at an epidemic rate. With the recent deaths Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahama and Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina by police, Common’s latest gem featuring the legend Stevie Wonder is definitely needed.
With nothing seeming to change as police continue to view unarmed Black men as threats, Common revealed,
“I wrote this song in March and unfortunately it was as relevant then as it is now. As it could have been in the 1960s or 1800s or any era that we have existed in in this country. “Black America Again” is centered in the injustices that Black people have experienced and endured since we arrived on the shores of America. “Black America Again” is a call to action. It is a song about Black love, Black strength, Black justice, Black resistance, Black resilience, Black empowerment, and Black people.”
The video even starts with the footage of the police murdering Alton Sterling. Check out why #BlackLivesMatter below.
