’80’s Babies-3 Fifths


The ’80’s Babies’ “3 Fifths” is a reference to the Three-Fifths Compromise which was a law enacted in 1787 to count slaves as property with no legal representation. “3 Fifths” connects that constitutional amendment to the lack of indictments against the police officers who killed Mike Brown and Eric Garner. You can get the song and read the lyrics at the ’80’s Babies’ Bandcamp page.
