Black Like Me - Single Tracklist:
Powerful vocals and lyrics. This song was written last year, before George Floyd’s death brought popular attention to how black people are treated in the USA. What she’s doing is a patriotic duty. If you love somebody, you tell them when they’re on the wrong path, you don’t let them keep messing up. She’s speaking up so that the country we all love can grow into being the land of the free for everybody.🗽
People denying there is racism everywhere is our society is exactly the reason we still have racism. This song holds up a mirror to the deniers...and they don't like it. Well done, Ms Guyton.
Great song. Certainly makes a lot of likely white people uncomfortable, it should. White people like me have never lived as a black person for one second. So until you do quit pretending everything is okay for Blacks. You are the problem.
If I can leave negative stars I will. I do NOT appreciate a song like this at all. Her voice is beautiful but the lyrics are distasteful and all that is wrong in the world today. This is stirring up controversy and is inappropriate.
I love Mickey Guyton's authenticity and her courage in addressing relevant issues. I just wish the ultimate message didn't boil down to "you can't understand because you're not like me". It's conflict resolution 101: use "I" statements instead of "you". We need more love and empathy and understanding, and to do that, not more division. The producers and songwriters on Songland say it all the time.
Please don’t let some people’s reviews stop you girl! It’s not racist but how you seen the world. Everyone see’s things different and they can’t see others views. We all need to stop and look through others eyes. It will bring us together and start caring more.
Seriously? This is what is wrong with America right now. This is just adding fuel to the fire and separating people further. I turn the station every time this song is played. Shut up and sing. Leave your political BS at home.
Remember Mickey from American Idol and man these reviews just prove how ignorant so many of these country music fans are. She is not divisive or racist for shedding light on an important issue in this country. As one of the only mainstream Black country artists, she’s using her spotlight to fight against injustice and rather than judging, understand her message. I’m proud of her for speaking out and making this song. Black Lives MATTER. ❤️
Everyone has had it hard and anyone who lives in America is privileged. We are all free to eat where we want, wear what we want and watch what we want. People in other countries aren’t so lucky. Also Mickey is rich and famous so she probably shouldn’t be whining about having such a hard life when she still has a job and can still pay her bills every month.
So only black people have it tough? Why can’t you talk about the common folk struggle. Also trying to make a quick buck by making a bad song about an actual struggle America is going through and instead of helping, you’re influencing the rioting by talking about how black people suffer. Honestly, quit music cause you obviously don’t understand how to be a good artist.
This song is what’s wrong with America right now. America is the land of the free and you have all the opportunities anybody else has. This is absolute garbage, and the fact that it’s playing on country radio is disheartening. This is not country music, the message is invalid, and has nothing to do with country music. I’ll go out of my way to change the radio station immediately. And no I’m not racist 🙄
Truth is you are talented and powerful beautiful voice. Please ignore the other reviews it said she was being delusional and other things it’s easy for people to hide behind a review I wonder if they’d say it in the light of day. Keep going Mickey. Great song.
It’s sad that in 2020, people still think everyone’s experience is the same. If you’re mad about this song, you’re missing the point. This song is beautiful and powerful. Mickey is amazing. Can’t wait to hear more from this powerful woman!
this song definitely came from the heart and you can feel her emotion through it. Doesn’t deserve the 1 star reviews from the typical demographic of country music just because they can’t relate lol keep doing you Mickey!!
When Mickey first started, I listened to her a lot. Her voice is gorgeous (plus, she’s from Texas 🤙🏻). But saying “If you think we live in the land of the free, you should try being black like me”, is being wildly disingenuous, and simplifying an extremely complex issue.
No one should be judged by the color of their skin. That being said no one should use the color of their skin just to get sympathy on why they can’t make it as a singer. There are millions of people that want to make it as a professional singer but they don’t say the reason for their lack of success is their skin color. It could be a multitude of thing. Voice, song choice, timing, luck, etc. But for someone to try and capitalize on the division in our country and to make money from this is not right IMO.
In America everyone has a chance to make it. No matter the color of ur skin. This song is exactly what is wrong in America. people are always the victim,and they never look at themselves and say it’s my fault. We must rise up from these lies and bleeding heart liberal mindsets and keep America great!
Normally I’m not into country music cuz a lot of them sound the same and shallow. But this song brought tears to my eyes, and I’m not even black myself. It’s so deep, relatable, and exactly what we need during this time of fighting for racial justice. Thank you, Mickey Guyton. You are the truest artist in every sense of the word. You are now my most favorite country singer. And to all the negative reviews written here... y’all need to take a long look in the mirror and wonder who’s truly racist and divisive. If a black woman pouring her heart and soul into a song about her honest experiences of dealing with racism in her life is so offensive to you, then you have some serious issues of your own personal discrimination and racism you need to face before you come in here and accusing someone else of being racist.
What a divisive dumb song... we are Americans and all lives matter. This is the reason there is so much division in our country because of idiots like this. Everybody has equal opportunity in the USA. It is called Choices. God bless the USA and God bless Law Enforcement!
If America was so racist the outrage would not be what it is today from both sides where 95% of America agrees the death of George Floyd was wrong this is complete BS and instead of blaming all your failures on other people and institutions look yourself in the mirror first and ask yourself what you can do better...P.S. white people can be poor to
