Warzone A Message of Love
I’m Not Racist
I had the chance to catch up with Nicky Scorpio, Songwriter of the duo band The Sophisticated Psychos. Nicky Scorpio grew up in a diverse neighborhood in the Bay Area. — First-handedly he saw police target African Americans and saw how mainstream culture steals from the African American culture. People want to be heard, respected and acknowledged. Basic human rights. Nicky Scorpio shed some light on some of his personal views on the concept of Race.
In this song Warzone, I’m admitting I have white privilege to get other people thinking and talking about it. Even on my worst day, people aren’t clutching their purse, calling the police when I’m walking by.
“The song titled Warzone was created because we as a community and as humans, need to do better..and be better. Evolve. We as activists are all talking about what’s going on around the world, on the news and in our community and making the change. It starts with dialog and honesty. It takes time, but you are seeing it unfold and it’s beautiful. On the other side of this, there are many people who are completely unaware of what goes on outside their community. Many people want to turn a blind eye and ignore this issue because it does not pertain to them or they cannot relate. When people are rolling their eyes, thinking or making hateful comments, it’s because they are not connecting. Change comes when people relate; when they connect. We want a call to action. To show people and paint a picture. The call to action is us coming together, removing the concept of race alongside with educating and uplifting members of our human COMMUNITY.”
Nicky Scorpio went on to say:
The dividing argument most of the time is “this happened so long ago”, or “all lives matter”, which we all agree upon, but the system needs to be updated. People are so tired and exhausted on both sides. The difference is the killers and “bad guys” that aren’t allowed in white neighborhoods go home to the poor neighborhoods and people in the suburbs may be disconnected, but they’re safe. Tupac said this decades ago and it hasn’t changed. People living in the War Zone are just as afraid. People want to like the police, but when they’re targeted because of circumstances they can’t control, it’s truly not fair. It’s a broken system in such an advanced world. When you’re seeing police admitting they go to low income neighborhoods to make their quotas, it’s not fair. It’s Exhausting. People have been asking nicely and tried being patient. It’s time to open people’s eyes and minds. In this song Warzone, I’m admitting I have white privilege to get other people thinking and talking about it. Even on my worst day, people aren’t clutching their purse, calling the police when I’m walking by.
What’s unique about this song is the beautiful vocalist Taali Mack comes from France via The Republic of the Congo so she has a completely different perspective when we say War Zone. Taali Mack opened our eyes to what’s going on in Goma, Africa and how important this message is now internationally.
