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.”
