Joyner Lucas - I'm Not Racist Music
Perhaps, American Rapper, Joyner Lucas just unleashed the most powerful song of 2017. Titled “I’m Not Racist,” the Worcester, Massachusetts native simply brought race conversations to bare in a poetic delivery that might be difficult to match.
Plus, Joyner Lucas connects the dots perfectly with a music video to match his vivid delivery on “I’m Not Racist.”
Starting off with a white man with a “Make America Great Again” hat, he goes on a damning assessment of African Americans on the peripherals of being lazy, embedded in crime, irresponsibility with family affairs as well as the controversial use of the N-word.
He will eventually console himself about not being racist calling on the usual excuse and example many White people use of not being racist because they know one or two people who are black.
From the first verse on “I’m Not Racist,” you’d struggle to hold your breath with all of the no-holds barred attack you believe many White Americans might actually nurture in their thoughts but unable to share openly.
However, the video takes an unexpected turn when the Black man sitting across the fella takes centre stage as he defends his race as well as the hypocrisy of the accusations.
Painting a candid picture of what coloured people have to go through in the United States. He talks about limited opportunities, systematic racism, the police, the justice system, the presidency of Donald Trump, issues of slave trade and how it affects Black people till this day and a lot more.
However, “I’m Not Racist” ends on a positive note as the two come to an understanding of each other’s positions and share an embrace. Joyner Lucas does score a massive classic that’s deserving of legendary status with this latest piece.
In fact, “I’m Not Racist” is the exact uncomfortable race discussions that people should be having but are happy to shy away from. The song has indeed gone viral with several news channels including CNN picking up on its message.
