    The car are symbolized as what Africans get to when they come to America. Toyota Corrolla being usually at the top.

    a look at gun violence? way to miss the message entirely. This video is all about how it "feels" to be black in America. Its not about gun violence. It's about black skin. Listen to the words. Look at the imagery. Why is there a jovial group of black people dancing around while dismay and disorder ensues behind them. Why is a chorus of gospel singing black people gunned down in cold blood? Its not about the guns, its about the society. We absorb the black art, but ignore the black plight. And we create expectations of the black man. "Get your money black man" Focusing on the guns is stupid, wrong and political. Listen to the message very obviously being conveyed. Think this video is about guns? Then explain the very end, where he is running for his life. He's running from society, not guns.

    Guns take 33,000 lives, (12-16,000 excluding suicide), per year in the USA. However a bare minimum of 500,000 lives in America are saved by guns every year with the numbers being closer to 3,000,000. Guns do more good than evil. They are weapons of intimidation used by the public to keep criminals at bay. They can be used without firing a shot. A criminal will not commit a crime knowing the capabilities of their victim’s gun.

    Who cares about black men? Why comment on what's best for the black fucking community if you're not black?! And especially if you're a white man! What the fuck kind of retarded subhuman creature are you?! Do you think you're some kind of christlike white cuck? Care about your own people, WHITE PEOPLE, when THEY are the ones facing a crisis and an extermination process all over the world right now. It's easy as fuck to be black in America now. Think about YOUR OWN PEOPLE you FREAK FUCKING SO-CALLED WHITE PEOPLE! THESE KIKES ARE KILLING YOU OFF!! this fucking proliferation of black culture is degrading and degenerating us all! Whites and Hispanics! And they're actually valuable people, unlike niggers. Use your guns while you still have them to kill the jews.

    That was actually a very stupid way to handle a gun. Never wrap a loaded gun in a piece of fabric that can wrap around the trigger. Great way to get an accidental misfire. And at the risk of pointing out the obvious, the amount of "violence" in the background is minimal. It's 99% people running around without doing any violence at all. It's more like TV violence and mob panic than it is about actual violence. In fact, Gambino's gun shots are the only actual scenes of violence I could see.

    "Notice how much care is given to the gun, not the victim" Or it could be a black man killed another black man but it's okay so long as the black community covers for the murderer... It's sort of telling how you didn't notice this was a video about black on black crime. It just shows how blind you are to the biggest cause of black deaths and so eager to blame a tool for the actions of a man. Just as Gambino points out in the music video, you're distracted by the same old song and dance.

    Someone should do a video spanning 800 years of rape, murder, genocide, torture, enslavement and cruelty on the Irish, that way we can blame the descendents of people no longer alive for the atrocities suffered by nobody who was alive from back then. Then what we should do is claim it a holocaust and when ever Ireland does anything disgusting or questionable like invading another country and murdering them for land mass, we can just scream MUH HOLOCAUST. History of every nation on earth is brutal and horrific. But you learn to move on. Get the fuck over yourselves. You live in an overly privileged society. You want a better life go fucking earn it. Generation of fucking beggers.

    "look how much care is given to the gun." Yeah sure, all I saw were co-conspirators to help aid in concealing crime evidence. that was my honest first impression.

    Lmao shut the fuck up. You always focus on the white school shootings what about the 1000s of kids and teens killed each year in black communities nation wide. The only time they get coverage is when a white man kills black.

    I find black on black shootings are due to gang conflict. White on white shootings are more about existential issues. I’ve never seen or heard of a black shooter shooting up a school just to kill people. Black kids normally have specific targets while white kids just want high body counts.

    They focused on narrative over symbolism. They barely scratched the surface. They didn't focus on the duality of the character having a sort of schizophrenic appreciation for beauty and death. They didn't at all attempt to reckon with the color red signaling impending doom for something beautiful or peaceful. They don't at all reckon with the fact that most music and clothing themes are more African than american. They don't reckon with the pursuit of money and justification for the atrocity in the lyrics. They don't reckon with the fact that the cloth for the gun after it's use is red as well. The imagery speaks more to song and dance as distraction from ever present danger. in the garage the pillars had red markings and someone fell from the upper area on to a car. A death signaled by red in the upper areas on the pillars but this time the main character played by Childish Gambino wasn't a participant or perpetrator. The path he was running in the end was lit and darkness was behind him. A multiracial group chased him so I don't think he's running from something racial. But attempting desperately to escape the madness of the world he was in. If you pay attention to the color red you can stay alive if you're willing to destroy. The song and dance is a distraction. Its a wonderfully honest portrayal of how someone lives their life in a dangerous world. Beauty is constantly interrupted and violence cleaned away amidst song and dance. If you are an American Black man in a large city this is what life is like. But trying to leave is daunting as you have to shoot to stay alive and have to make money. There's also always someone trying to keep you there, keep you trapped.

    Important symbols you forgot: The brown and white chickens facing away each other at 0:56 to represent the racial divide When Childish Gambino said "This a celly (ha), that’s a tool (yeah)” on March 18th, 2018 in Sacramento California, Stephon Clark was observed to have picked up a “toolbar” and break a window to a residence. He ran into his grandmothers backyard and was then shot 20 times after an officer yelled “gun, gun, gun.” His grandmother said that she saw him with an iPhone (CELLY) at the time the shots were fired. TOOL is slang for gun The kids are shown recording the events but remain silence as represented by the material covering their mouths at 0:52 And also the 17 seconds of silence for the 17 lives lost in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida on Valentine’s Day
