Following the aftermath of Donald Sterling’s racist remarks, The-Dream speaks out on a new song entitled “Black.” The singer-songwriter pens a powerful track about the injustice in the world and its alienating effect, while the lyric video shows images of civil rights leaders and historic events.
“I feel real black right now, real black right now,” sings Dream over the marching instrumental.
He ends the video with a message: “Black isn’t just a color. Black isn’t just a race anymore. It’s a feeling and a place from which one feels isolated by the world of the governing elite. Classism is the new racism.”
Take a listen.
