I recently came across this message from John Legend, a man whose music I enjoy and philanthropy I admire. There has been a lot of hubba balloo recently about a football player who refuses to stand for the National Anthem in protest of the treatment of black men and women far less fortunate than he, and especially at the hands of the police. I have mixed feelings on this issue but would like to see this football player working with John Legend on this cause. Colin Kaepernick has made himself noticed and has been joined by many. He is now in the perfect position to do more than sit down.
I have created an album on my facebook page called Words to Sing By to accompany this weekly post. Check it out!
