Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Murray McLauchlan addresses white privilege in his tell-it-straight folk single “I Live On A White Cloud." After George Floyd's murder and the global outrage against systemic racism, he was prompted to look hard at himself and his own advantages as a white man.  “I thought, ‘If I watch all this go down, and shake my head but say nothing, I’m just as guilty as anybody else,’” he explains in a press release. “I recognized my life has been easier — even in its difficulty from time to time — because of what I am.”   Watch the video hereKaren Bliss
