Judging by the comments most people either didn't listen or simply didn't understand. But people might not. If you aren't into politics, you may not have seen the two sides of the song repeated 10,000 times in real life or on the internet. Usually the two sides are separated into echo chambers and you only get a little bit of the other side of you dig around for it. Me personally I research every angle I can so I get what the song is saying. It's goal is to give perspective to people in their echo chambers. To force people to hear both sides of the story.
Joyner Lucas put the song together perfectly by putting a big white redneck in the beginning of the video saying horrible things about black people. It grabs the attention of the listener regardless of which side of the coin they are on. Liberal? You get angry, watching, why the FUCK is this racist white piece of shit rapping so well about niggers?" Then you get to the second verse and you're like "ohh I see, ok cool." You're a racist conservative? You hear this song and you're like "wow! He's so right! I love this guy!" then you get to the second verse. I wonder if they turn it off at this point. But hopefully they actually do listen to it.
I just wonder if it makes a difference at all. I wonder if racist people will stop and think about their racism. I wonder if poor people will start to believe there is more to life than suffering and work hard to improve their situations. I don't know if this song will do that but maybe it helps open the doors to some communication between people.
I'm a big proponent of "perspective." I always try to learn everyones perspective, it's the most important thing, period.1
