When I choose to ignore someone’s race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation, I discredit the struggles and experiences that influence their identity. My silence and choice to ignore makes me complicit in the oppression they face.
All songs are purposefully unedited versions and some of the topics will be tough to swallow. Nonetheless, I find it necessary to leave the music unadulterated for the sake of the message. I challenge you to hear the struggles and really listen intently to the lyrics before you. Only through listening, humility, and a willingness to be uncomfortable can we achieve a right understanding of solidarity, empathy, and inclusive love.
