3 min read

If you’re looking for someone to provide a broader state of the nation’s address, Bruce Springsteen had one on his SiriusXM radio on Wednesday. And surprisingly, he saw the state of the Union as strong, and went so far as to say that the country was “on fire and in chaos,” with a White House that could “only a very disturbing and futile response” to coronavirus deaths, as well as racism.

After playing his own police brutality-themed “American Skin (41 shots),” Springsteen did not back-up the title of the song, but back-running the running time: “Eight minutes. The song is about eight minutes long. He has a Minneapolis police officer on his neck.” How long has it been since George Floyd died of a sore throat, and it’s been a long time, and he’s been begging for help and saying he can’t breathe, the arresting officer’s response was nothing but silence and waiting, then he had no pulses. , Still running. “

He offered a sad sacrifice for the music. “It is in the memory of Seattle, New York, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington, Los Angeles, Asbury Park, Minneapolis and George Floyd. If he could rest in peace. As we speak, 400 million people are unemployed. One hundred thousand plus citizens have died from COVID-19 with the most worrying and disturbing response from our White House. To this day, our black citizens continue to be unnecessarily murdered by our police on the streets of America. And as of this broadcast, there was fire and chaos in the country. “

Before he went to the equally directed song of Wrath of the Catalog, he had all the segments he needed: “Murder included.”

Springsteen also released a song in 1995 that he co-wrote with Joe Grusheki, “Idiots Delight” – lamentation for humanity from high, with the original resistance, “How did something so beautiful turn into the joy of stupidity?”

But the real content is a small amount of Wednesday’s satellite radio playlist. The other tracks that opened Springsteen were explicitly or explicitly protest songs – including a famous song about twentieth-century lynching, using a death frame known as “twenty-first century visual lynching”:

“Strange Fruit” by Billy Holiday
“It’s America” ​​by Pillow Gambino
“Who will survive in America?” By Kanye West
“Bernin ‘and Lutin” “by Bob Marley
“Blind Willie McTell,” “Political World,” and Bob Dylan’s “Murder Most Foul.”
“My Dark Time” by Grameen Parsons
“My country,” from you. “
Martin Luther King’s 1963 Birmingham Speech

Speaking of the violence that took part in a few marches this week, Springsteen called it “the price we have to pay for half a century of descriptive unresolved fundamental issues. We don’t take very good care of our homes. Every American, regardless of their race, color or ethnicity “There can be no peace. This week’s events prove it again.”

And he said “the real sin of slavery.” It remains a great unresolved issue in American society. The weight of its bag becomes heavier with each passing generation. There’s no end to the violent, chaotic week on American streets. “
