(SALEM)  A new video, “Spiritual Journey,” traces the spiritual life of musician Jason Barnes, better known in Rasta circles as Primitive.  Here in the United States, we know racism is a huge problem, particularly for Blacks.  As Primitive explains in this 11-minute documentary film, racism is also a huge problem in the UK.

Primitive says the police harassment he experienced as a young man in the early 1970ʼs under England’s Sus Law, continues unabated today.  The law allows police in England and Wales, to stop, search and potentially arrest a “suspected person,” on suspicion they could be in violation of section 4 of the Vagrancy Act 1824.

(CHICAGO)  Near the end of Arlo Guthrie’s classic 1967 folk tale, Alice’s Restaurant, Guthrie sings these words:

“Can you imagine, three people walking in singing a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and walking out, they may think it’s an organization.  And can you imagine fifty people a day, I said fifty people a day, walking in singing a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and walking out, well friends, they may think it’s a movement.

In his latest song, Agron Belica throws down his gauntlet before the artistic world. While paraphrasing the wisdom of the revolutionary Spanish painter Pablo Picasso and invoking the spirit of the great Persian poet and mystic, Jallaluddin Rumi and his whirling dervish followers, Agron takes his stand and demands to be heard. Well done, Agron! Yours is a voice and a message to be reckoned with. Pay attention, world!
