Basslines and Protest Signs is Brett Callwood’s column looking at the intersection of music and politics. This week talks about the Texas Senate Bill 8.
Today we have the ACLU + NAACP suing the state of Georgia for their new voter suppression law, Arkansas passing another anti-trans law, Twin XL announcing a new music video and Pastel signing a new first-look deal.
The country has become more polarized than ever, and we’re doing nothing to change it. Protests on the street, and shouts of “Not My President” will continue to move us further apart. We can continue to believe that half the country are bigots, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic and racists; but that would be simplistic and missing the big picture.
