"This song lasts for nearly eight minutes. This is the time that it took George Floyd to die with the knee of an officer of the Minneapolis-pressed into his neck," said Bruce Springsteen. "It is very long. This is the time during which he has asked for help and said that he could not breathe. The response of the police officer who made the arrest, there was only silence and weight. And then he no longer had a pulse. And it continued... May he rest in peace," continued the artist.

After which, Bruce Springsteen has been on the rest of the american news, just as bad. "At the moment we are talking about 40 million people are unemployed. More than 100 000 citizens died of the Covid-19 with the only answer that is lukewarm and uncaring of our White House. To this day, our black citizens continue to be killed unnecessarily by our police in the streets of America. The country is on fire and in the chaos", a-t-he sadly pointed out.

"We remain haunted, generation after generation, by our original sin of slavery. This remains the great unresolved issue of american society. The weight of his baggage has been increasing over the generations. This week's violent and chaotic in the american roads has no end in sight", he laments.

We remain haunted, generation after generation, by our original sin of slavery.
