    Ever since the "Black Lives Matter" movement was going on, I've wondered if there were any songs similar to Three Dog Night's "Black and White" with a similar message.


    It just seems odd that it is the only anti-racism song I can name or that I've ever heard on the radio or whatever streaming services get used by area businesses.
    So what other songs are out there? "Black and White" is 50 years old. Surely it isn't the only one of its kind.

    There's a song called Black Lives Matter from 2020 but I don't think it was much of a hit. A few that were:

    Brother Louie - Hot Chocolate
    Drowning - Hootie and the Blowfish
    The Way It Is - Bruce Hornsby and the Range

    Indirectly, The Last Resort by The Eagles discusses the "White Man's Burden."

    An 1930's example is Billie Holiday's Strange Fruit -- which references lynched bodies hung like fruit from trees.
