Spotify Releases Pro-DACA Playlist Featuring A Tribe Called Quest, Pharrell & More
The playlist includes tracks from A Tribe Called Quest, Pharrell, John Legend, Khalid, and more.
Titled “No Moment For Silence,” the 56-song playlist is an offering of solidarity with those affected by Donald Trump’s decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
“With having lived in a border city, I have so many friends whose families could possibly lose their legal status in the country that they grew up in,” Khalid said in a press release for the playlist. “Please stand for the DREAMers and let them know that they are not alone and that they have our support.”
Following Trump’s announcement former POTUS Barack Obama voiced his displeasure with the decision.
“Let’s be clear: the action taken today isn’t required legally. It’s a political decision and a moral question. Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn’t threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us,” Obama wrote. “…Ultimately, this is about basic decency. This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we’d want our own kids to be treated. It’s about who we are as a people – and who we want to be.”
