In response of the recent Charlottesville protests that occurred this past weekend, punk group Anti-Flag have shared a lyric video for their new song "Rascists." Watch it above, courtesy of the band's YouTube.

Anti-Flag left a comment about America's history of racism on their Facebook page:

We stand in solidarity with those fighting racism and fascism in the streets of Charlottesville and beyond. We believe it is time for the removal of all monuments to the confederacy and the racism for which they stand. We must put these symbols of white supremacy into places where the proper context can be provided for what they actually are; outdated, backwards, and antithetical to what we believe the values of humanity should be. It is past time to have real conversations on systemic racism and America's history of it. There are museums memorializing the holocaust all across Europe while America continues to try to hide from its racist, murderous past and present.

"Pray for the dead, and fight like hell for the living." - Mother Jones

The song is an energetic punk-rock anthem with lyrics that address sexism, fascism, and bigotry. The tune is backed by images of the KKK, Confederate flag supporters, and Donald Trump voters.
