“Weeping,” by Bright Blue, the song for America as it becomes an Apartheid state

A long time ago there was Apartheid, an ideology based on racial privilege, fear of the other, walls and barbed wire, censorship, ignorance and oppression.

This was one of the songs we sang when we wept for all those damaged, abused and betrayed and were denied the opportunity to fulfill their potential:

Apartheid died because people never gave up protesting against it and, eventually, its own internal contradictions bankrupted it. We hoped never to see its like again.
