When it comes to artists who resonate and practice what they preach, there are very few these days. Back in the day, we had Poor Righteous Teachers, Public Enemy, X-Clan and several others who were about empowering the African American Community. These days, everyone is really on jewelry, alcohol and females, and they stay away from things that really matter. During the Superbowl, the world was in an uproar when Beyonce did the halftime performance, and even more when the "Formation" video came out.

But I have come to the conclusion that people are most uncomfortable when things they see or hear are true. This is the reality that we live in, and we have to do something about. Common is back with a very touching song and video that displays the actions of certain police here in Louisiana and also uses Stevie Wonder to really bring the message home. Check out the new video for "Black America Again".

We have to talk about what's going on and stop being closed-mouthed about what's happening to our people. We can close our eyes and ears, and it still won't make the problem go away. Regardless of what nationality you are, if you are a decent human being with a heart, you have to realize that the violence that is perpetrated on African Americans in not right.
