Summer of Black Lives Ending – September 21, 2016

| Radio, Songs

There were more police killings of black men this week, including Keith Scott and Terence Crutcher, bringing a sense of frustration and grief that can’t go away because they don’t stop happening…  This week’s Bubble Wrap show featured lots of funk, r&b, hip hop, and even some disco (imagine that), mostly addressing the black experience, punctuated by random, mostly white, pop songs of the last few years.  The music presented quite a contrast, and without meaning to, pointed out a pretty basic element of reality which is, that black people have much bigger problems on their hands than white people, and the music proves it.  See for yourself — play list below.
