2016 and we are still divided because of skin color. Have we not advanced beyond this YET? Why not? Why? First we need to pray about it. Thank you BLACK EYED PEAS for using your forum to talk about and pray about it. Let us pray together…..for unity.
Then we need to learn how to act. How to act to move forward. Will.i.am says we need to invest. We need to sympathize and empathize.
#Whereisthe Love, 2016 remake from the Black Eyed Peas
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate, then you’re bound to get irate
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how hate works and operates
Man, we gotta set it straight
Take control of your mind, just meditate
And let your soul just gravitate to the love
So the whole world celebrate it
Easier said than done…..but just do it. You gotta start somewhere.
We started remaking “Where Is The Love?” in 2016 right after being bombarded by all the things the media were showing – the wickedness of the world, the conflict in Syria, the Paris terrorist attack, the Brussels bombing, the Turkey violence and the Orlando shooting. Every time I looked up there was severe hate and not enough love, so I wanted to get all of my friends together and re-imagine what we did after 9/11 with “Where Is The Love?”
We just wanted to ask the questions, “Where is the humanity in things? Whatever happened to the fairness and equality?” Instead of spreading love, we’re spreading animosity. What’s wrong with the world?
And if you never know love, then you never know God, wow
(Where’s the love)
Where’s the love y’all? I don’t, I don’t know
Where’s the truth y’all? I don’t know
Make me an instrument of thy peace. Show me the way. Give me courage to ACT.
