Nationwide -- A new song about the Coronavirus is infecting Black America with some very powerful, hard-hitting lyrics. The song, written and sung by a father whose own son was denied a test, hits home for thousands of Blacks in the U.S. and the UK that can relate to racial disparity and discrimination when it comes to being treated and even being tested for the virus.
The singer says in one verse:
Doctor doctor. I'm not feeling well.
He took my temperature and said he can tell.
Can you give me a test? He said you don't qualify.
He wrote a prescription and sent me home to die.
In another verse, he sings:
What does it mean to be self-quarantined?
I'm fighting something that can't be seen.
If I get infected or maybe you.
How we gonna tell who infected who?
