Neil Young has published an article on his official website addressing his feelings about the recent Black Lives Matters protests that have erupted across the nation amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

"Have hope. I feel a change. Although it could get a lot worse, the pandemic that is, I think we will all learn together. Some of us will get sick, especially those who protested, their families, those of us who care and feel," the 74-year-old singer wrote in the article, titled "Hope."

"We know black lives matter. My heart goes out to all our black families affected, so that's all the black families through American history," he continued. "I feel like we are turning a corner."

In the same article, Young also shared that though he thinks "our president is responsible for a lot of this unrest we feel today as he has fanned the flames and tried to turn us against one another for his political reasons, I am thankful that we are all standing for what we believe, and I think we will be a better country for this."

"We have a great future before us, not an easy one, a great one," he signed off.
