There has been some discussion about what role a music blog should play in social issues. The goal of Electric Panda Music is to share great music with people, but sometimes things get too heavy to ignore. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people in this country who aren’t afforded the opportunity to put their head in the sand. J. Cole gives voice to the injustice happening in Ferguson with the release of “Be Free.” This isn’t anything new in America, but maybe this is the time where people say enough is enough.
RIP to Mike Brown, Ezell Ford, Eric Garner, Dillon Taylor and all other victims of police violence. Love to their families and loved ones, may they yet see justice.
