Shawn Stockman of the legendary group, BoyzIIMen, uses his songwriting/vocal talents AND his frustration to point out the troubling issues African-Americans face in a new song, “Let Things Go”.

The lyrics…

so tired of all the bullshit
No real intentions to improve it
We got men of power but no common sense
We witness Incidents with no consequence
It’s messing with my self-conscious

I wanna live how I wanna live
Wanna Speak how I wanna speak
Even though it is what it is
There’s a deeper need 4 me to… Take time to let things go/ do my own thang and just take control

Shawn has been really vocal about race issues and the injustices African-Americans face on his Instagram, so his posts are worth the follow.
