Song Written Out of the Pain of Ferguson

Protest Music: a song by Loki, 16-year-old musician from Ferguson, MO.

Letter to Obama

My name is Loki. I wrote this song titled ‘Letter to Obama’ because I don’t feel Obama cares for my city. I was inspired to write this when I overheard an old man saying Obama loves us. I don’t feel loved by him. He watches young Black men dying and doesn’t say anything or try to help, it’s as if he doesn’t see it. He is Black, his kids are Black, so he should feel our pain. He has a lot of power, I believe enough power to stop what is happening. We won’t stop fighting.
