Subject: Wow...I'm a little stunned, to be honest.


A new video was released from Donald Glover yesterday (Childish Gambino) called "This Is America". A part of me wants to laugh because I know that he's known for his sense of humor and it's exaggerated as a parody. I know that apart of him is joking. But another part of me knows that he's NOT jolking, and he's saying something pretty brutal with this video.

Check it out...

I mean...it's so true. Some people make music glorifying a violent lifestyle, they dance and rap and sing while completely ignoring the lingering, real world, consequences of their actions. You get a glimpse of the brutality involved. Not just a song anymore. All of this disturbing stuff going on in the background, and it gets ignored. 'Get your money'...but at what cost? You know?

I don't know. Food for thought. Discuss?

Funny how there's never a look of fear on his face until the very end when the violence he got paid to encourage comes after him. That's crazy.
