Brother Ali just unleashed the official video for Mourning in America, and it’s packed powerful visuals to go along with his powerful message. This is defiantly worthy of your time. Ali did a great job here.
This is the title track to my new album, Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color. The first half of the album highlights and critiques the dire situation in which we live. The second half outlines the tremendous opportunity we have to re-imagine and reform our society.
This song is an observation and a critique of our culture of death and murder. From actual war zones around the world, to our own inner cities where this summer’s death rates rival war zones. I also address our national hypocrisy regarding violence.
We have a zero tolerance policy of violence committed against us, but we’re a lot more lenient and patient when it comes to the violence we commit. “A life is a life and a killer is a killer”. -Brother Ali
