Es – Fact Remains [Song]

Posted on November 6, 2015 by


This song was inspired by the events of the past 12 to 18 months involving police brutality, media portrayal and criminalization of people of colour and the varying opinions as it relates to race relations. The media portrayal of people of colour has in a way tainted our perceptions in many circumstances and situations. I approached this song from the vantage point of an observer (first verse) and that of a concerned parent (second verse). Check this out and see where I’m coming from. This is the way I see things from my vantage point. There is plenty of blame to go around. The first step in achieving any sort of resolution is to first acknowledge that there is a problem, then uniting as a people (regardless of skin colour) to find productive ways to move forward. There is NOTHING more counterproductive than having your problems and concerns dismissed as trivial or irrelevant. This is the core message in this one. Enjoy!
