Martin Luther (The Dark Side of America) by The Julian Day

Our song and video “Martin Luther” are a protest of the dismantling of everything “democratic” in America.

Growing up we were taught that America was a “melting pot” and that in America everyone was, or at least one day would be, equal.

I don’t have to tell you that there’s a GREAT DIVIDE growing awfully quickly in America. And racism is far from being wiped out.

Additionally, the crush of unbridled capitalism and the heavily slanted “free market” system are turning the country into two distinct groups; the haves and the have nots.

The scariest thing is that many of the politicians and organizations espousing this new America also call themselves “Christians.” To me they are like so many hyenas, cackling their own self-righteousness.

Our song “Martin Luther (who’s next?) is an acknowledgment of this and, at the same time, a warning to others who have yet to see it, and an indictment of those who find it entertaining.
