Wrote a song an press releases that speak out about growing up black in the South and the various race-related issues he's witnessed.
At least that's what I gathered with a quick search.
His perspective. His music. My choice on whether I listen to it or not.
One statement of his was interesting.....said he'd like to unify his fans. Not sure if he's trying to educate them first....or what his angle is.
One of the things I enjoyed about watching sports.....or movies.....or music.....was to get a break from the politics and divisions. Now....it seems that many athletes and artists want to incorporate social climate change into their work. Sorta defeats the purpose of watching for me.
I don't care to hear "an average white guy" country music singer writing songs about being oppressed with reverse-racism as he grew up, either.
Less political statements in entertainment must be too much to expect these days.
For Gary Clark Jr., racism was a part of everyday life growing up in Texas. It’s something he rarely spoke about as he became one of the world’s greatest living guitar players, championed by everyone from Eric Clapton to Barack Obama. But the 2016 election and the subsequent policies of President Donald Trump changed that.
I went saw the western Hostiles on the big screen after hearing about the cinemotography. It was absolutely breath taking art on the big screen.
The star of the movie opened his big mouth at an awards show recently demeaning GOP leadership. Made me regret my spend. I will never go watch another film with him in it. They really don’t get their opinion is no more relevant than any other persons.
