Joyner Lucas | “I’m Not Racist”
Art is always the best way to understand each other. We need perspective and structured exchange to even begin the actual work of reparation. Great work here in my opinion.
Some, however, found the notion of equivalency between both perspectives problematic. Personally I feel like the presentation of both perspectives allows the consumer to weigh the relative merits of each position. Making a song called “White People are Racist” for instance would be treading no new ground. Sometimes you have to allow for empathy even if the other party isn’t. When that’s gone, we’re only left with these hands, and force, while satisfying, is never permanent change.
