JOHN COUGAR MELLENCAMP

~Ahead Of Super Bowl Weekend~

John Mellencamp capped off a haunting rendition of his politically charged anthem “Easy Target” with a powerful statement on Thursday’s episode of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
The musician dropped down to one knee and raised a fist into the air as his performance drew to a close.

The track itself, which Mellencamp released on the eve of ‘so-called President’ Drumpf’s inauguration in January 2017, addresses racial inequality and references the Black Lives Matter movement.

The lyrics include:
So Black Lives Matter, who we tryin’ to kid.

Here’s an easy target. Don’t matter, never did.

Crosses burning such a long time ago, 400 years and we still don’t let it go.

Video of Mellencamp’s “Late Show” protest is now going viral, poignantly coming as it did ahead of this Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots.

NFL players have invoked the wrath of Drumpf and the president’s supporters in recent months for following the lead of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in taking a knee during the national anthem before games to protest police brutality and racial injustice.

STATE OF THE BLACK UNION

The Shadow of Crisis has NOT Passed
2014 was a year that saw profound injustice, and extraordinary resilience. Homicides at the hands of police sparked massive protests, meaning that America could no longer ignore bitter truths of the Black experience.

Among many, Gabriella Naverez, a queer Black woman was killed at 22 years old, unarmed. 37 year old Tanisha Anderson’s family dialed 911 for medical assistance. Instead, Cleveland police officers took her life.  Anyia Parker, a Black trans woman was gunned down in East Hollywood. This brutal attack was caught on camera, yet her murder, like so many murders of Black trans women, have gone unanswered.

This country must abandon the lie that the deep psychological wounds of slavery, racism and structural oppression are figments of the Black imagination. The time to address these wounds is now.

The movement was co-founded by three black activists: Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.

BLM

Black Lives Matter is an American activist grassroots movement that can be traced back to the July 2013 acquittal of George Zimmerman in the Florida shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin.

It received fresh impetus from the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, an African-American teen, and the death of Eric Garner, as well as the acquittals of both of the officers who killed them. The Black Lives Matter movement also speaks out and organizes against police brutality against African-Americans in the United States.

Some of the unarmed African-Americans who died at the hands of law enforcement have had their deaths protested by the movement, including Tamir Rice, Eric Harris, Walter Scott, and Freddie Gray (whose death sparked the 2015 Baltimore protests).
