Celebrities social media pages went viral today sharing and promoting Usher’s new and powerful song (and message) about racial profiling in America. Usher, along with NAS and BiBi Bourelly are apart of the movement to #DontLookAway.
According to his Facebook page, here is what Usher had to say about the meaning of the song:
“I was motivated by the events involving prejudicial injustice that are still happening today. The reality is that racial bigotry diminishes the lives of too many people in our country. We have to come together as a country to solve these problems and this is one way I can contribute. I chose to introduce the song through the #DontLookAway experience because it is important not only to feel the issue but to face it. The pain and suffering that these victims and their families have endured is something we must never forget. When we look away from this problem it gets worse. To fix it we have to face it.
