People Get Ready

73-year-old Lester Chambers dedicates “People Get Ready” in memory of Trayvon Martin.  A white woman jumps on stage and assaults him.

If you aren’t familiar with the song, here’s a recording of Aretha Franklin singing it:

Imagine how folks would’ve reacted if Lester had sung Springsteen’s “American Skin (41 Shots)”.

One thought on “People Get Ready

  1. I think the racial stuff is getting insane. It seems to be getting crazy on all sides. I wish people would figure out the powers that be WANT the different races TO FIGHT from what I can tell, that way less pressure on the bankers and elite while the different races shred each other to bits. Sigh…. American Great Depression? Well ignore what is going on for ALL the people falling into poverty and get them to fight one another. The ghettos are the way they are because of the earlier removal of all manufacturing early on leaving options few and now they are becoming fewer for more and more people.
