It’s Just A Song Not A Check
Lift Every Voice and Sing, Congressman James Clyburn, won’t feed the hungry, clothe the needy, eliminate the urban blight, create black economic opportunities, erase black judicial injustice, build black educational institutions that can compete with America’s primarily white educational institutions, provide clean and healthy essential resources to black communities, nor the singing of that song erase the racism that permeates throughout this nation, it will not heal the historical harm that oppressive governmental policies that has caused suffering to black Americans and the ancestors of black Americans, it will not bring the needed judgement of retribution to the murderers of innocent black Americans, it will not recover the economic losses that white supremacy policies that black Americans endured, and finally Congressmen James Clyburn it will not loosen the chains of inequality that severed black American progress. So by making the song this country’s hymn. So if you think Lift Every Voice and Sing will bring healing to America without some form of comprehensive reparations to black Americans. You sir are barking up the wrong tree. It’s just a song, a great song yes, but still just a song. White America must repay the harm by more than lifting their voices and singing.
