1. Totally chilling!

Bet she had to practice awhile before she could sing this without breaking down. Unbelievably sad and poignant truthful reminder of some heinous times. This is so disturbing and rightfully so. Shames every single white person whose ancestors allowed this to go on.

Being from the south, I'm just glad my relatives from FL were fisherman and generally out at sea and the ones from TX were hunter/trappers on the plains so neither group took part in any of this. Such a horrible time and I fear we're not far from going back there, though it could be liberals, minorities and immigrants who are being hunted by traitor trolls this time.
