Okay, fine, I understand the danger in lumping people into categories. Like All Republicans or All Liberals or All Muslims or All Hispanics. Using the word ALL is a dangerous thing. However, everyone, ALL of us, absolutely need to acknowledge what is happening in our country and choose whether or not they condone it. There is no gray line here, there is no middle of the road. You’re either with the oppressed and you desire to help fix the situation or you are as bad as the oppressor for tolerating the evil and the hate. There is no excuse, there are no reasons, this is completely unjustifiable.
Those of you who know me also know that when I really like a song I’ll play it 24 times in a row with no qualms and I’ll belt it out like my life depends on it.
So I knew it has been a few years since The War on Drugs released an album, but I’m not going to pretend I know what the album was or if it did well or what the singles might have been, because I have no idea. However, I did just stumble upon their latest track called “Pain” and I really liked it. So thank you Google Play Radio for sharing this new release with me, I doubt I would have heard it otherwise. And looks, I liked it enough that I logged in to write about it, when is the last time that happened? Well in all fairness I did just share a video from Ziggy Marley so I guess it hasn’t been that long, but prior to the island music I had written about something music since December!
