    the "nations" gun violence epidemic??????? NO, the issue is black criminality and their culture of violence. More idiotic propaganda from the liberal left shit rag wash post.

    Yes, because the solution is to blame the nation and not the communities. Certain people in America have to take responsibility for their actions instead of blaming the rest of the world, and those people know who they are.

    People dont notice the backround sounds which include Migos and they try to point out how it affects their fans singing about getting money by selling drugs, usage of drugs, gun violence and so on..

    You missed something near the end of the song there is a person wearing a black hoodie with black pants, that means its a sign of apocalypse. Note, he also was riding a white horse.

    The choir is also a reference to the prosperity doctrine prevalent in America. They're singing about getting your money.

    Would it be a stretch to say that the Jim Crow stance is symbolism for when white people in the past portrayed African Americans to be a dangerous violent unintelligent race; and that maybe he's pointing out how some black people nowadays are living up to this caricature making blacks as a whole look bad?

    I get a kick out of watching black people piss cry and moan about the way they are being held back in this country. It’s a bunch of crap they are living in some of the easiest times in history and all they have to do is have a few kids and get on welfare in their ways paid over the big bad white people Give me a break

    Stop recommending this same shitty video to me - it's stupid, it's offensive, it's ugly, it's hate filled, and it's not America it's anti-America. Some loser can dance sorta mediocre and sheep make him a god because he brought guns onboard. Idiots. And can any artist of today NOT RELY ON AUTOTUNE BTW? GOD! NO TALENT. My manicurist could do better and she doesn't even speak English but would be more coherent. This guy is a joke and I hope this ends the borderline harassing level of "recommendations" to me to watch this ugly ass video. Move!!!! If you hate America... GTFO.

    Childish Gambino, I didn't know anything about him until I seen this video said, a lot of people that follow that west rapper and look at those African video for dance moves. Then all the things he seen on your utube channel and all the things you tweeted about that happened during 2017 and still going on now. What I gather from this video, is that things are being covered up its all nice on the outside and messed up where it counts on the inside. When the video first started an innocent man got shot from behind but he knew it was going to happen because he had his head covered. He just didn't know when he was going to get shot. Then later in the video when Childish Gambino is dancing on top of a car the man starts to playing his guitar again.

    The end of the video showed him getting beaten by US police. So all of your shitty interpretations of his actions eventually get put down. Don't use this video as a definition of America to promote your Anti-Right belifs. Support the 2nd Amendment.

    The video could have more accurately been titled, "This is The United States of America." America refers to the landmass itself, and not all of the other countries of North, South, and Central America have the same gun violence problem. Greetings from Canada.

    Go Fk Yourself Childish Gambino! This is a biggest piece of shit music I've ever heard. I understand the meaning behind it, the message he's trying to get across.......but he just did it in a disturbing way. His topless (ugly body) dance through out the music video was also disgusting & disturbing. IT IS NOT ART. This is not a masterpiece of a music video. Seriously, you got other black singers that sends message across throughout their music and they did it with style & subtle. And Didn't Get 360k Dislikes. Because of this Song & Music Video; I hate Childish Gambino from now on. He wana be so righteous but he adds a name to himself after a notorious Mafia's family name. 360,000 dislikes on his official video = Is Shit
