The track is over six minutes long, and begins with an inspirational message from Khaled before transitioning to the powerful hook with kids singing the lyrics, “Time to take a stand save our future, like we all got shot, like we all got shot.” There are a number of notable and strong lyrics on the song, including Ross’ line, “Keys to the city yet we left in the cold, hands in the sky, still was left in the road, Michael Brown another soul by the system, black men we pay the toll.”
Have you guys heard the song yet if so what’s your opinion on it?
'Racism has long been part of American history. Undeniably powerful and disturbing images of swastikas, Klansmen and flaming crosses are immensely associated with the term. Since the civil-rights movement of the ’50s and ’60s, many people prefer to believe racism no longer exists. Yet, it is still alive and functioning in this country. Today, with the goal of becoming part of the American mainstream, the racist movement operates through both subtle and transparent practices to recruit new believers from among America's youth.'
