For centuries racial tension has been the elephant in America’s living room. Many choose to ignore the pain and injustice around them. Some reproduce this culture of ignorance because of miseducation. How can we have reasonable discussions on these issues that lead to healthy relationships and understanding? First we must not be afraid to bring to light the many obstacles that plague our society. “Jim Crow” by Sho Baraka is that very song. It is a shout from the auction blocks against the apathy of today’s pseudo post-racial society. It’s a challenge to both the majority and minority.
