Bruce Springsteen: … drops a double live album on us, including his song “American Skin.”

“I think that it deals very directly with race, and that’s a subject that pushes a lot of buttons in America,” Springsteen said, recalling sharp reaction to the song. “It was asking some questions that are hanging very heavy in the air right now … (about) people of color in the United States who are viewed through a veil of criminality, who (are) used to having their full citizenship, their full Americanship, denied. It’s one of the issues America is going to face in the next century.”
