  • Love this song

    yeah the text was sort of visually distracting, with that said I imagine it was very cool for the participants to have their names in the video, I’ve always thought of Brownsville as a horrible neighborhood in Brooklyn but this brigthens my outlook on the place some

    • ya i never thought about that side of it, great tribute to the moms and coaches

    love the song. love that they profiled nyc youth and their families, but i can’t help feeling a little uncomfortable about the lack of integration. there’s some, but not enough. but the again, forced integration isn’t genuine. i live/work in brooklyn, so i understand demographics, but i think this video brings to light that nyc is more of a mixing then melting pot. i hope in the future this continues to change. on a more positive note, this could be seen as a project heralding in a new era that will continue to bring more people together through art.
