Streams of N.W.A's 'Fuck tha Police' nearly quadruple amid nationwide protests

“This Is America,” meanwhile, has been a viral soundtrack on TikTok for the past month, when teens began incorporating the song in TikToks about racial inequality when charges were filed in the case of the killing of Ahmaud Arbery. Gambino’s 2018 song witnessed a 149% jump in streams over the same time period as “Fuck tha Police.

Decades-old songs have also received large spikes in streams, including James Brown’s “Say It Loud — I’m Black and I’m Proud,” which has spiked 455%, and Nina Simone’s “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free,” which saw a 34% jump in streams. Asked in 2016 how it felt to continue to see so many unarmed black men continually get killed by police officers almost 20 years after “Fuck tha Police,” N.W.A’s Ice Cube told, “[It] makes me feel like a black man. That’s what it makes me feel like — same as always. As a black person, it’s always seemed like it’s a war on us. It’s just terrible.”

Listen to this by Ice Cube instead.

I’d rather thank the police 99.9% of whom are good, than curse them out.

Trevor Noah Defends Response to George Floyd’s Death: “Police in America Are Looting Black Bodies”“There is no right way to protest, because that’s what protest is,” The Daily Show host said on Friday. “It cannot be right because you are protesting against a thing that is stopping you' I'm sorry Noah, that is insanely incorrect. People that loot and riot are hurting themselves and the communities that are at the center of it all. Target, Walmart, or whatever are only a portion of the destruction. Do not riot or loot, because your future 'contract' depends on it They are not protesters they are criminals. There is no right way to watch Trevor Noah on the Comedy Channel. I just turn the channel to old reruns of Lenny on Law and Order for laughs!
