The popular lyricist recently revealed this in a statement via his #Merky company.
According to him, it is sad that black people in the UK have been at a constant disadvantage in every aspect of life just because of their skin color.
He added that Black people have been playing on an uneven field for far too long so he’ll keep trying to even things out.
His words, “The uncomfortable truth that our country continuously fails to recognise and admit, is that black people in the UK have been at a constant disadvantage in every aspect of life – simply due to the colour of our skin.”
“I’m lucky enough to be in the position I’m in and I’ve heard people often dismiss the idea of racism existing in Britain by saying ‘If the country’s so racist how have you become a success?!’ and I reject that with this: I am not the UK’s shining example of what supposedly happens when a black person works hard.”
“There are millions of us. We are not far and few. We have to fight against the odds of a racist system stacked against us and designed for us to fail from before we are eve.”
“Black people have been playing on an uneven field for far too long and this pledge is a continuation in the fight to finally try and even it.”
