VIDEO: MARCEL CARTIER (@marcelcartier) FT AGENT OF CHANGE (@agent_of_change) ‘WHITE LIKE ME’

Check out the latest track from Mar­cel Carti­er ft Agent Of Change ‘White Like Me’ accom­pan­ied by a com­ic­al video made by Glob­al Fac­tion. Taken from the new album “Invent the Future”.

Here’s what the Hip Hop revolu­tion­ist had to say about the track:

“The new single and video “White Like Me” is a satir­ic­al ana­lys­is of racism, white priv­ilege and suprem­acy in con­tem­por­ary U.S. soci­ety. Every line in the first verse is built upon some­thing that I’ve heard a fel­low white per­son say at some point over either the past few years or when I was grow­ing up. Some of it is rather overtly racist, while oth­er things may seem pretty subtle but reveal pre­ju­diced atti­tudes when diving deep­er. The “left” and the “revolu­tion­ar­ies” aren’t immune from this, either. When I say “now we all cope on an equal play­ing field with oppres­sion”, I’m speak­ing from the per­spect­ive of those so-called revolu­tion­ar­ies who say they “don’t see race” or think that the race ques­tion is now irrel­ev­ant and that some­how we’re all being “equally fucked”. I speak to this in the out­ro of the song, because I think it’s really import­ant: sure, cap­it­al­ism is based on the exploit­a­tion and oppres­sion of the work­ing-class in gen­er­al, but nation­al and racial oppres­sion is one of the key weapons in their arsen­al (along with homo­pho­bia and sex­ism). Acknow­ledging white priv­ilege is incred­ibly import­ant for those like myself who want to play a genu­ine role in mak­ing humble con­tri­bu­tions towards the cre­ation of a fairer, more equit­able world.”
