Blood is on your hand – US rapper Macklemore tells Biden as he releases song for Palestine

U.S. rapper Macklemore has released a song about pro-Palestinian protests, while accusing President Joe Biden of bearing some blood on his hand.
He also announced that he would donate all proceeds from the song to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
In the song, the 40-year-old singer from Seattle, said he was not voting for U.S. President Joe Biden in November’s presidential election.
“The blood is on your hands, Biden, we can see it all,” he raps in the song released on his social media profiles.
The rap, “Hind’s Hall,” is named after a Palestinian girl who was killed in an attack in Gaza.
At protests at New York’s elite Columbia University, pro-Palestinian students renamed a building they had occupied “Hind’s Hall.”
In the song, Macklemore raps about the recent protests at U.S. universities against Israel’s actions in the Gaza war and in favour of solidarity with the Palestinians.
The hip-hop musician, who urges a ceasefire in the song, had already taken part in a large pro-Palestinian demonstration in the U.S. capital Washington in November.
Macklemore has often taken a political stance in his songs.
The hit “Same Love” became an anthem for same-sex love.
The song “White Privilege II” made reference to the black protest movement “Black Lives Matter.”
