“Due to the growing controversy over Trayvon Martin & George Zimmerman, I decided to write a song to support the Martin family and movement. It’s sad to see that even in 2012-2013 we still have issues, and I mean serious issues, with racial discrimination in the United States. A CHILD lost his life for going to the corner store for a snack, millions of other children around the world are doing this right now and they shouldn’t be worried they won’t make it back home safely because of the color of their skin. The fact that his murderer is walking around with the same freedoms as you or I, COMPELLED me to write this song! I am/was inspired by all of the support the Martin family has received, black, white and otherwise. Watch my new video of, “United,” let us know what you think about the message of unity I am trying to portray to the nation and world. This was a wake up call that racial discrimination is still prevalent and a part of our culture. BUT, I was equally inspired when I saw just as many white people supporting and protesting this cause as my black brothers and sisters. Please don’t let this precious life be forgotten! If we stand “UNITED” his life will live on and his legacy will be preserved!” ~Jung Phil
