The-Dream Shares "Black," Speaks About Classism and Donald...

Posted by - 10:22 PM on 04/29/14
R&B auteur The-Dream just released a lyric video for an overtly political new track titled "Black." The video includes imagery from the Donald Sterling controversy and various social movements, and concludes with this written message: "Black isn't just a color. Black isn't just a race anymore. It's a feeling and a place from which one feels isolated by the world of the governing elite. Classism is the new racism. This is what black feels like." There's no announced single or album to accompany the song, but you can watch the video in the replies.

Only this man could write such a serious and important song and bestow it with a hook that's still stuck in my head an hour after listening to it

Even if you don't know him by name, you definitely know some of his work.



Song is fantastic. Made me all emotional. Get it, Terius. Don't know if I'm on board with classism is the new racism tho

Even without the message, the song itself is really solid

Just looked it up and you're right. Know quite a bit of his work, just didn't know it was his doing.
