A Soundtrack For Injustice: Spoken Word by The Watts Prophets

Playing tracks by

Chart positions

This show was 3rd in the global soundtrack chart, 5th in the global hip-hop/rap chart, 11th in the global funk - soul - jazz chart and 12th in the global soul chart.

With all the latest events of injustice that's been happening I thought it would be appropriate to share this soundtrack that I've compiled. I think the Watts Prophets sum up really well what African Americans have been going through decade after decade.

This problem of bigotry and racial hatred is not a White/Black issue. It is an issue of human society that is deeply rooted to the creation of us human beings. Protesting/Looting does not help this so-called CHANGE that we all want. Something more radical needs to happen to force this change to actually CHANGE.

As a side note: I use the term African American/Black/White. Ideally I do not like to use these terms to describe a person because he or she is either a US citizen or not (stop saying American). There is no such thing as African American, Asian American etc. The same counts for the rest of the world.

We are all the same human beings. We just have different features, stories to tell, skills and mindsets etc...
