    He signed the damn law, no? The very fact that he signed the law would imply that his personal feelings were of less import than the party's platform.

    It is extremely fashionable to pretend to be an activist at the moment and every artist and musician seems to be jumping on the fad. BillBoard.com featured an article on the top 20 Protest songs of 2017 and I am sure we will see a similar article at the end of this year.

    I just posted an article (#127) from Billboard.com featuring the best Prote$t $ongs of 2017.

    Here is another article from Rolling Stone:

    If we're seeing a rash of more-serious art, that's not a bad thing (not that I object to lighter stuff). Obviously this one is getting way more attention than others for a reason.

    I would not call what we are seeing as more serious art. It is opportunists putting a "woke" song on an album full of bling and booty lyrics in an attempt to jump on a fad and make more money. These songs are about as serious as the Jenner Kendall Pepsi commercial. It all comes down to marketing and selling a product.

    Surely you can see a difference between that video and the commercial, can't you?

    Which is it, is America a racist wasteland where people of different races are incapable of living together so much that minorites are actively affected, or is multiculturalism a success and we should strive for more diversity?

    No, I do not see a difference. The video will be just as effective in making people "woke" as the Pepsi commercial. Like the Pepsi commercial, it has inspired memes more than a change of heart.

    Which is it, America has conquered racism and people should stop complaining, or different racial groups can't live in harmony?

    The real answer is that because of its history, America does a great job integrating immigrants, and that has traditionally given us a big boost in a lot of ways and should continue to. But there is a specific problem with historical treatment of blacks that we're still moving past.

    Except this is America isn't an Anti-trump protest song.

    Multiculturalism is great. Its the best part of where live (Toronto).

    Still tons of racism that needs to be exposed and rooted out though.

    He's saying that everyone is doing protest songs or songs with some kind of meaning these days, and no difference in quality can be discerned among them by him personally.

    I'm also in Toronto and I very much disagree that the majority of minorites here are affected in any significant way by virtue of they're ethnicity.

    Well its easy to ignore of it doesn't affect you.

    Take a look at the way our indigenous population is treated, especially in the legal system. Same with black people.
