I have seen a lot of these symbolism videos recently. I feel a lot is missed out deliberately so that you can make your "own interpretation". I think ultimately this the message of the video is....hey I'm gonna make you think* *really make money like everyone else.

His overall point of the video is how us AMERICANS get distracted so easily by social media IN GENERAL not pointing the finger at race saying who doing what

Is this like a preview of the expert's take or something, where's the beef? Fucking experts these days, 30 seconds outside the velvet box to get a couple big words a half deep thought.

I am going to ask a serious question! Do you think outlawing firearms in the United States will stop violence between people? Keep in mind that the United States outlaws drugs and we still have people using and selling it. Also, London just surpassed New York City with the amount of murders committed, London had outlawed firearms for years!

This is America video is really for the pseudo conscious and the fake woke.....the choir sequence mimics a manufactured news story of a crisis actor Dylan Storm Roof which perpetuates a false narrative and deception... Which is why this is only for the fake woke not the real conscious people that see right through the infantile emotions being triggered... this is America.. Edit

Enjoyed the video because it paints a true picture of today's culture but what it doesn't do is offer any helpful solutions. Typical victimized mindset of many in this country. Blame someone else rather than take ahold of it yourself and spread positive change. Am looking forward to the next video form Gambino about "Steps to take to Fix America". Also- TIME: you suck at breaking down videos.

Literally the only ones I've seen to disagree with the symbolism, meanings, and truths behind it all are all white. Maybe try to see why people of color feel this way. try to understand.

Why didn't mention about he smokes weed who indicated how many business cannabis lately just boom as legally mariyuana, mdical cannabis, etc... It's just ridiculous... In this MV seem the artist look like smoke weed that's why all scene seem slower then seem repeat back like nothing happened because all people just enjoy themselves in drug ... Ironic

All of that anti-gun talk is fine and dandy, until you wake up in the middle of the night, and see a large, scary dude, trying to break into your house at 3am. And then, you have to call the cops. But, you know that the police aren't gonna show up for another 30-45 minutes.

I know people are mocking the expert, but honestly his point was true. You could catch onto it on the first to second viewing of the video, Donald wanted to make it an obvious message because he wants people to know, and I’m sure most people thought the exact thing as this expert before watching this vid.

I am sorry but African Americans kill each other way more than any white shooter by like 100X and they think guns and white shooters are the problem look in the mirror first.

You are discussing subtext. Look at what is in your face: The person being executed IS America. WHAT is being machined gunned IS Christianity. THEY want America dead, THEY want Christians dead, THEY want blacks dead. THEY want us all stupid, preoccupied, and doped up. That is what this video is saying, it's very obvious. THEY are being hampered by America. TIME is part of THEM. So; is Danny Glover warning you or B.S-ing you?
