Neil Young has written his opinion on his website to show support to the Black Lives Matter movement.
He writes, “As an old white guy, I don’t feel threatened by my black brothers. I welcome him and his sisters. We have to deal with our white insecurities. I don’t feel any of those insecurities myself, (I have my own in other places). I will stand with my black brother. I want a better world for us all together. … My black brothers and sisters have suffered long enough.”
He continued, “I feel a change…We know black lives matter. My heart goes out to all our black families affected, so that’s all the black families through American history. I feel like we are turning a corner. All Together, all colours on the street. We know our mission is the right one for America and for mankind.”
He had a few words for Trump as well saying, “I think our president is responsible for a lot of this unrest we feel today as he has fanned the flames and turned us against each other for his political reasons. He is, in the end, just a poor leader who is building walls around our house. I believe he will be powerless soon and I wish him the best in his next life. That sorry man will not destroy the American dream. He can see his power slipping away with the support he is losing in his own party. It’s just the beginning of the end for him. I hope he and his family are safe through this transition.”
