Neil Young shared a message of hope with his fans in a Viewpoint article for his Neil Young Archives Times-Contrarian website Saturday (June 6) that publicized his support for the Black Lives Matter movement and his disdain for President Donald Trump.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic and the protests as a result of the racist murders of multiple Black individuals, the former Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young member promised his fans that he feels change coming. "Although it could get a lot worse, the pandemic that is, I think we all learn together. Some of us will get sick, especially those who protested, their families, those of us who care and feel. We know black lives matter," he wrote over the weekend. "My heart goes out to all our black families affected, so that's all the black families through American history. I feel like we are turning a corner. All together, all colors on the street. We know our mission is the right one for America and for mankind."
The Canadian-born singer-songwriter gained American citizenship at the beginning of 2020 after living in the United States for 60 years. Soon after, he began exercising his First Amendment right by penning a scathing later to President Donald Trump in February, but Young still mustered enough enmity for the current Commander-in-Chief in his latest letter.
