Childish Gambino just dropped a new video that has people talking. There is so much to intake while watching the video. It goes from a choreographed 'cutesie' bop to a massacre. Making statements on America the entire way through. What do you think Childish Gambino is trying to say? What points is he trying to prove? The video is deep, and I am here for it! Rappers need to use their platform to speak up for the people who have no voice and I think he did just that.
Here's what some of his fans had to say about the video...
Man! Let me tell y’all abt this #ThisIsAmerica video:— BIG BALLER BRE (@brerobbbb) May 6, 2018
1. It’s too short for how powerful it was!
2. Glover uses it to reference:
• Mass Shootings + hysteria
• Black men getting shot
• The state of hip hop + how they don’t care about what’s going on
So much symbolism in #ThisIsAmerica 1. Guns are handled with care 2. The kids are following his every move 3. Travon Martins dad playing the guitar 4. Dance moves depicting americas shopping craze 5. The people recording on their phones. SO MUCH MAN!— Mel_OD K. Howard (@MEL_OD) May 6, 2018
