Before all, thanks for the richness and (exhaustive) extensive knowledge you are providing here. Thanks for being (somewhat trying as I do) conscious people concerned. Thanks also for I stop doing anything for 1 or 2 hours every week to be able to read and listen to all the materials you provide. I am here since the beginning even if I don’t reply much.
Today something hit my ears:
Dee Dee Bridge water…before retiring from the United States and taking up residence in France.
I must say here that my ears (and heart, etc…) are french.
As far as I know she still performs and issues discs here, were she always has good review and audience. Reasons why she left the states probably are also explained in the text here up:

“the twisted truth is that “Strange Fruit” continues to grow, rot and drop in the American South (i.e. anywhere below the Canadian border).”
“and living in the South still provides enough reminders of the past that it’s enough to keep a conscious black man pissed off 24 hours a day.”

Yet I apologise for I think that it is not my job to explain her reasons, or to say bad things about america.

Also I add that (including me) we all still love america, and america today. “with so much tenderness and passion.” (text above, again)

Thank you again for stating your opinions and how it insribe into the big and small things of your life.

And Sharing.

Take Care,
