Xavier Rudd addresses racism with new song Shame

After Horrorshow released an anti-racism inspired single yesterday, Xavier Rudd and his band The United Nations have also jumped on the anti-racism bandwagon and released a new single, Shame, inspired by the recent issues in the media about racism within Australia. Rudd is a long time, passionate activist for the rights of our Aboriginal community, and has said in relation to the Adam Goodes saga that is is a “Worldwide embarrassment for this country”.
