Carefully Taught, a moving song about racism by Billy Porter and India Arie

Lovely new song by Billy Porter aka Ellis Porter-Smith and India Arie. It’s a moving song about how racism begins. Look at Charlottesville yesterday. The time for this song is now and I hope it reaches some of the people who need to hear it. For those who prefer uptempo jams, Quentin Harris has a nice dance remix also.

“You’ve got to be taught to be afraid of people whose eyes are oddly made. And people whose skin is a different shade. You have to be taught before you’re 6, 7, or 8, to hate all the people your relatives hate. You have to be carefully taught.”
