The viral hatred and white supremacy that Trump whips up in this country is taking away precious lives, all for the sake of Trump’s personal greed for power. Even while wrecking the lives of his followers, as Republicans before him have done, Trump distracts them by pointing furiously at non-white people as the ones to blame for their suffering. He has enforced an Us vs. Them mentality on the nation that is making life for all Americans more troubling and dangerous by the day.
So this weekend’s music thread is about accepting the Us and Them scenario that has been thrust upon the country. We do have to pick a side between Trump and his fellow racists who betray the American promise of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness…and our fellow Americans who have a conscience, compassion and are under siege (as we could soon be).
Songs about us, we, them and standing up for the right thing to do is what this weekend’s music theme is all about.
Let’s get together in the good fight, share songs that speak about “us” and standing up to those who want to divide us with their hate.
