Twitter Is Mercilessly Going In On Chrisette Michele For Her 'Black Lives Matter' Song

Black card (still) revoked.

Published November 14, 2017

It’s been nearly an entire year since Black Twitter traded R&B songstress Chrisette Michele for practically any other woke White artist after she stood before the entire nation to offer up her vocals at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.

In a whirlwind of back-and-forths amid the controversy, she first defended her decision but later revealed the personal damage it caused. Now, Michele is returning with a politically charged ballad with a title that’s sure to turn heads after all the fuss: “Black Lives Matter.”  

The organ-heavy track features Michele’s soulful vocals and newfound testaments on Black lives, racism and oppression.

“Racism is loud and clear/What’s the hurt in hearing my fear?” she croons. “Doesn’t mean I don’t see your pain, it just means we’re human the same/If I matter, hold up the sign/Say it with me, identify.”

But no matter how much of new leaf she’s turned over toward her apparently new stance on race relations in America, Black Twitter is not buying it — neither the single (which is “now available everywhere music is sold”) nor a new Black card for Michele.

Listen to her “Black Lives Matter” peace treaty below and what Black Twitter had to say about it.
