That is the voice of an angel. I can’t even make eye contact with him right now. His voice is like a combination of Fergie and Jesus. For a minute i thought i saw him floating above himself looking down.

It is all propaganda.

A very large portion of this country is easily influence and believe what the media tells them.

The message these propaganda outlets have been pushing for years is that "America is unfair, racist and needs to be fixed".

The so-called "media" is the biggest threat to our nation currently.

For a portion of the population thatís probably pretty accurate. I doubt that demographic is well represented on a boating forum so the responses are as expected.

I agree that for a portion of the population that is pretty accurate song, the problem is that it does not make it reality, fact or anywhere close to civilized.

I would theorize that a boating forum is comprised of successful, intelligent, hard working people who pay an extremely large portion of taxes. Like many people here, I built everything that I have without help and overcame issues. I didnt blame other people or America.

This is part of diversity, inclusion and integration of people and culture. The old way of thinking is dying on the vine, withering into boating forum innuendos and whispers of anonymous threats . Tolerance and acceptance are working it’s way into our society. Look as far as your tv, radio, school, go to a wedding, listen to the music, watch the dance moves, your Uber driver/taxi driver, police, fireman, nurse. Growing pains? Sure enough but change is inevitable. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. One could only imagine what action invoked such a song to be written, what action perpetrated to elicit such strong emotion, visual violence..... The artist will be explaining his message for weeks to come, to those that would listen. Why this song/album was picked over any others? Who knows, a message to the masses maybe? I would give it a R rating at the least.
