Bruce Springsteen believes the United States (US) is still “haunted” by “slavery”.
The Born in the USA hitmaker reflected on the demonstrations happening across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police last week and chose songs that echoed his feelings on racial injustice and political protest in his two-hour SiriusXM broadcast as part of his ongoing Bruce Springsteen – From His Home to Yours series.
He said, “We remain haunted, generation after generation, by our original sin of slavery.
“It remains the great unresolved issue of American society. The weight of its baggage gets heavier with each passing generation. As of this violent, chaotic week on the streets of America, there is no end in sight.”
