A Nashville-based gospel singer unleashed a viral rant about racial tensions and unity — and took aim at some of the protestors who have recently flooded America’s streets.
Shannon Knight from the Music City Show Quartet published his video on Aug. 16, and it has already garnered well over 1 million views. Due to its candid nature, the clip is sure to spark both controversy and conversation.
“I just couldn’t take it anymore. I’ve been watching the news and reading Facebook,” Knight said at the start of the clip. “I’m fired up. I’ve had it.”
The performer went on to say that, while he believes there are “a few bad ones on the black side and the white side that are acting like complete idiots,” he believes most of the country isn’t racist.
“Get a life. Get your life right. Get a job. Do something, because the majority of Americans are working together today, black and white,” Knight said. “They’re walking the streets together, shopping together, eating together and just a couple of you crazy folks on both sides making us all look bad, stirring up conflict and strife.”
He implored all Americans to “love unconditionally” and said that it’s time for people to come together in unity.
“In Jesus name, I bind you!” Knight said. “May the devil be drug out of every one of you!”
