Black Lives Matter & U2
« on: June 03, 2020, 04:24:14 PM »
I look to my musical influences and heroes during hard times and emotional moments like we have going on right now in the U.S. and other parts of the world. I'm surprised the band, or at least Bono, have yet to make a formal statement or take the time to formally participate in some sort of protest or organized conversation.

In the meantime, thank you U2 for this gift: One love. One life. We get to carry each other, carry each other. One.

What other songs by U2 or other artists have significance and importance at this time?

I understand that this is a tough subject but what exactly would a statement from Bono achieve?

I for one do not need another statement from U2 or anyone. There’s enough empty sentiments out there that are flooding the internet right now. And it’s mostly all pretty much useless. The world doesn’t need another hashtag to trend.

Use their music to escape in.

Thank you for sharing the Instagram link. Also, I agree, definitely need to just listen to the music. We all know where the band stands.
