Punk outfit Anti-Flag have responded to the recent, horrific scenes in Charlottesville by releasing a forceful new track.
Racists responds directly to the abhorrent marches being held by so-called White Supremacists in the state of Virginia, with the band saying the following about the track:
“We stand in solidarity with those fighting racism and fascism in the streets of Charlottesville and beyond. We believe it is time for the removal of all monuments to the confederacy and the racism for which they stand. We must put these symbols of white supremacy into places where the proper context can be provided for what they actually are; outdated, backwards, and antithetical to what we believe the values of humanity should be. It is past time to have real conversations on systemic racism and America’s history of it. There are museums memorializing the Holocaust all across Europe, while America continues to try to hide from its racist and murderous past and present.”
