Music Makers: Together Against Racism


More than 700 music makers have sent an open message urging people to “stand together and eliminate racism now.”The British Broadcasting Corporation indicated that among the signers of the message were the band “Little Mix”, the American singer Nile Rodgers, the Scottish Lewis Cabaldi, and the British Rita Ora.
And the text of the message states: “We are proudly united to raise our voices and take responsibility. Silence is not an option. ” He adds that the signatories to it want to show that “love, unity and friendship, not division and hatred, should be our common cause and will always be.” He continued: «We are at our worst when we attack each other. Minorities have fought against all backgrounds and beliefs. All forms of racism have the same roots: ignorance, lack of education, scapegoats.
According to the message, music “brings joy and hope and connects us all … Through music, education and sympathy we can find unity.” This comes days after the British monarch followed the headlines, after he published a series of “anti-Semitic tweets”, before his Twitter account was banned. In a television interview last week, the artist apologized for the “generalization” about the Jew, stressing that he was not racist.
