A few weeks ago many Americans, including myself, made the mistake of underestimating Donald Trump and his supporters. We were too blinded by our privilege to realize that the heart of America still contained the types of virulent intolerance and hatred we’d like to pretend is in our past. That was our error, and its one we cannot repeat.
I’m not going to say this is the worst period in American history – that would be aloof at best and downright ignorant at worst. But I will say that the coming four years scare me. And so I carefully curated this playlist to highlight the powers of resistance, both past and present, as to remind myself and all that listen that there is still a fight to be fought.
Note: This playlist contains profanity.
