Damian Lillard has never been shy to speak his mind.

Now, a week after attending a Black Lives Matter rally in Portland, he's continuing to speak out about racism plaguing the United States. Or in this case, vent.

He didn't pull any punches, beginning the song by calling out racists and complacent white people in today's America. 

As a brother with a good heart,

F*** you if you're racist,

Or white staying quiet,

You're disabling the changes - Dame D.O.L.L.A.

Lillard's single mentions the killing of George Floyd, racism in America, police brutality, the blacklisting of former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and more. 

Dame D.O.L.L.A. also condemns the president, calling out Donald Trump's controversial tweet where he stated, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts," and calling him a "trust fund baby."

He also bookends the song calling out the same people he did in the beginning: racists and complacent white people.

This isn't the first time Dame D.O.L.L.A. has spoken out on racial issues. He released "Bigger Than Us" back in January 2016 in response to the Ferguson riots.
