I think of the parents, the children, the communities. We have to do better. This has to stop. End police violence, now.

Railroad Park: Ashland, Oregon.

The story goes that a Black Lives Matter poster went up last week, and someone was caught on video tearing it down.

The next day, this happened. It is a very intense experience just to read all the names. And as a father, I think of the parents, the children, the communities. We have to do better. This has to stop.

End police violence, now.

For July 4th, I wanted to highlight some recent music from Danielle Ponder, King Bliss, Otis Mensah x Hemlock Ernst, and Brian Fender x TxTHEWAY.
