Should Bruce release a statement?

Recommended Posts

It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes strength to be gentle and kind

Number 11 on that list, tells me Macdonalds use prison labour FFS.

I'd didn't think that would be legal anymore, it's like something out out the Shawshank Redemption 

This book is already somewhat older but an excellent read on how forced laber continued well beyond the reconstruction and how it targeted afro-americans.

In lieu of Bruce's reluctance to release a statement, I will be releasing one instead.  It can be found on one of the Greasy Lake Offshoots at 2PM.  Thanks you very much.

Aren't you listening to his radio show at the moment?

The songs that followed all had the same sentiment and the whole show became his statement. Typically Bruce!  From the heart and as he has always seen it.

Bruce sure has a way with words. "We have a choice between ideas of community, a spiritual, moral and democratic awakening or become a nation fallen to history". Almost Lincolnesque. And I love the phrase "original sin of slavery". Now that is very Bruce.

For those that don't want to read all 5 pages.

People were getting the vapors and their panties in a bunch about Bruce not making a statement.

Bruce made a statement during his regularly scheduled stint on satellite radio.

People are happy, no more vapors, panties no longer bunched up.

Well they are no longer bunched about Bruce not making a statement would be more accurate a comment.

the audio of the statement is now up on .net

 

Thank You, Bruce. 
I really needed to hear that from you.

Setlist:
(Wonder why I liked the Billie Holiday choice the most. Why is that song needed in 2020?)
