New Black Eyed Peas Video “Get It” Shows The State of America

The Black Eyed Peas dropped a new single, “Get It,” and a video to go along with it. The video is a 4 minute look at what seems to be the headline every single day: police brutality and killings, ICE, Trump, and the unfair treatment towards those of color.

Are these issues happening at a higher rate than in previous years? I’m not sure, simply because I have not done any statistical research whatsoever. My (again, un-researched) instinct says no, we just now have the ability to document every thing, so we’re SEEING it more. We have technology to spread and share news as it unfolds. Every person is a news reporter, sharing their experience in real time. I could be wrong though, and to be honest, I wouldn’t even know how to start to find the FACTS regarding the stats in previous years.

Watch the video. Weigh in. Is America a mess?
