    Hocho Pun Natchtrup. Dance and sing like headless chickens, sport and running around like donkeys to keep a nation entertained. But where is the social welfare and education program for the black and ethnics living the USA dream. The free world has tried and failed so what is the next phase, catch 22 free healthcare to criminals, pimps, muggers, druggies.

    0:58 ppl never note that the only car that's different is the car he's dancing on, it's a Toyota, not a American car.

    It's also statement about the ruling elite and the polity turning black entertainers into "Uncle Toms". GB is playing the part of the Uncle Tom and telling us what is really going on. The kids follow and and dance like him mindlessly and blindly not even noticing the carnage going on around them. But of course because they're just kids who are easily distracted. GB then advises the kids above to use their cell phones to record anything that might be of importance and then warns the dancing school kids to watch out for people like him (Uncle Toms). When he mimes pointing the gun, the kids immediately run away. He then takes a moment for pause (17 seconds to commemorate the 17 students killed in Florida) and lights up a joint. He jumps onto the old red car (red symbolism and confederate symbolism is rife throughout) and throws his joint as if to say "smoke break is over and now back to work" (back to the dancing!). But this time the kids aren't following his dance anymore though there is an attractive lady (SZA) who is still very interested and enamored with Gambino. But Gambino is just a "big dawg" in a kennel in someones backyard, and that someone aint happy about Gambino warning the kids!

    I feel like the part regarding the kids was suppose to represent how care-free there lives are suppose to be at this stage in there lives but they are in the midst of chaos and commotion like all the school shootings that's been going on. Also I feel there's a subliminal message about poor education for blacks and how America tries to categories us all therefore places us in uniforms is symbolic for giving us all the same stereotype due to some of our behaviors. Due to the stereotype that's been placed on all of us for quite some time now it has caused fear in those who have authority and power. They've been abusing there power for too long. And each time they give an assumption that leads to the catastrophe that leaves someone dead. Final thought: stop judging us by our appearance, attire, but by our attitude and actions. 🙏🏾 Amen

    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.

    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?

    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.
