Billie Eilish

Support Billie Eilish

I recently read that Billie Eilish, who’s from Lubbock, Texas, is an activist for the rights of the disenfranchised. She’s performed several award-winning concerts around the country to protest the re-emergence of white supremacy, and she’s won awards for her own work with the National Organization for Women (NOW) in this country.

Katherine Merrell, a black female musician from Los Angeles, is a vocal opponent of racism and was raised by an abused single mother. She’s an outspoken advocate of the rights of women, and her life has been influenced by her love of country music. She’s well known for her many hit songs.

I’ve noticed a lot of progressive men not only want to be supportive of Billie Eilish, but I have also noticed a number of women of color who support and appreciate Eilish’s advocacy. This seems to me a great example of how change and activism work. How can you support a person who inspires you?

As I’ve noted, one of the biggest challenges of this year, as far as progressivism goes, is the effect of the campaign to elect Donald Trump. His campaign focused on white supremacists and Nazi sympathizers. He didn’t just mention them or to tell his followers about them; he actually paid them to rally in support of him. What is remarkable is that he didn’t use that as an issue; rather, he used it as a talking point and an argument for why he should be president.

When it comes to white supremacy, the focus has been on black males, which is a problem when it comes to supporting women who want to be leaders. A few weeks ago, as a result of these unending attacks on white males, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort resigned over having had secret meetings with the Russians. That action, of course, made it more difficult for Donald Trump to draw from the white male base, so he’s had to turn to others, such as Billie Eilish. These are essentially the two women that he needs to energize.

One of the challenges with Billie Eilish is that she is very much a do-it-yourself gal, and she’s not going to have a national following unless she can expand it. For the purpose of that expansion, she needs a platform that not only mirrors the passion she has for politics, but also uses that passion to influence her fans to have similar interests.

That may sound like a tall order, but there’s something I’ve noticed with the people who support Billie Eilish, and it’s something that has been a puzzle to me all along. If you care about the advancement of the rights of women and you are willing to support someone who can inspire you to get involved, then I urge you to take a look at her work and see if you agree with it.
