This hit me hard. I have no.prior familiarity or knowledge of Mr Lamar. That matters not. Its his passion and his agency as exalted by Mr Zito that moved me. And it seems to all start with and comes back to seeking and acknowledging truth, especially in ourselves. If we all looked honestly at ourselves and others and the events around us we would be on our way to true redemption and a better world. Hopefully that is the message (among others) from Lamar and many will be inspired notwithstanding the criticism being heaped at this time.

Beautifully written. And so timely.

So much resonated, personally, for me in this piece. I am not a fan of rap but I immediately went out and bought the cd and plan to dig into it with the your words in mind as I explore this beautiful piece of art. KL is brave to be so authentic and his words will heal many. If woke culture was wise, it would offer a path to love and redemption, and thusly, would be far more powerful and effective. Without this path, it is simply one more cudgel that we all have to survive. And life has enough of those already.

Unfortunately, the power one feels when dehumanizing others to acquire revenge is both seductive and toxic. Dehumanization and defenestration are the weapons of woke culture, which can only destroy, and never create. This is the multi-headed hydra we are battling. We need MORE brave art like this in the world right now to illuminate alternate paths of healing and problem solving. Bravo, KL and Jason! Nicely done! 🌻
