To be a young Black man in America today is a 24 hour, 7 days a week struggle. In recent years so many Black boys and men have been victimized, criminalized and hunted by the same system made to protect the basic American rights. For the last several years we have seen time and time again Black men, women and children die by the hands of law enforcement. Those incidents that have been caught on tape have played in the media over and over again, potentially traumatizing anyone exposed to this footage day in and day out.
R&B singer, Rob Clove has capture all of the emotions of Black America in one song called “Little Black Boy” from his Energy of Humanity EP. In the song he dedicated to Alton Sterling and his son Cameron. The song, although not an answer to today’s problems does serve as an amazing piece of music social commentary, just like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On.” Listen to it below.
