    • It’s racist black Biden supporers like you who burn crosses. Racist blacks like you are the ones torching churches.

      @Rocco Lore After we get rid of Trump, I wonder what will happen to his supporters..? Just look at all of those people out there… and all of them hate YOU.

    • Spare me, please. Fake commie sellouts making music and millions off of the capitalist system that they b!tch and whine about in their songs. They are as ideologically false as your constipated commie Bernie, a millionaire who complains about billionaires. They fooled you into backing a senile pervert who can’t remember what day it is. lol🤣

    • @Jaguar God The same rich liberals who worship Castro, Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Mugabe, Maduro, and Chavez.

    I’m hoping Ari might be able to do a special episode where he can examine more of the greatest songs in protest history, from spirituals to soul to pop. I’ve always found it odd how there is a segment of society that preaches artists should “sing and shut up”, when the history of modern music’s very tapestry is woven with protest songs that have emerged as some of the most popular compositions of all time? Well, in due time, hopefully this can be a topic of interest for the show; music inspires, soothes, compels, and unites…and lord knows we need a little bit of all of that right now.

    I remember a colleague of mine whose parents were murdered in their home and robbed. I know their parents well, both were kind hearted, hard working and very simple folks. The guy is a navy officer of a country in South East Asia. When he spoke at the wake of his parents, the first sentence he said was: “If my parents have done you wrong, I am sorry, and I forgive you.”

    I cried too when I heard all four Police Officers were charged and the officer who took George’s life was charged from 3rd degree murder to 2nd. To my young fellow sisters and brothers be strong and know your voices are being heard not just here in the States but Globally. When I was your age we protested the Vietnam War, were able to drop the voting age from 21 to 18 with the logic if an elected official can send you to War you should have the right to vote that official in or out of office. Fought for Civil and women’s rights. In my day there were no black or women News Broadcasters; Barbara Walters was the first.

    Things have changed but we’re still a young Nation and still have some serious growing to do. Trump & Co. is there to wake us up. I know we’ll come out of this challenge stronger and wiser, stay in if you can and stay well Covard-19 is still lurking about.

    Right now would be a great time to play “Bring On The Lucie (Freda Peeple)” by John Lennon. *Here it is:*
