I think what he is trying to say in the music video is black people are not getting treated the same as white for example if a white person dies they don’t stop until they ding out who killed the white person but if it’s black they will act like they care when they don’t racists stuff and people is coming back in America but if you think about it it will make sense also watch the original but look in the background

When he talks he is so pretty I think he is showing how everyone is so rapped up into themselves their worlds involve paris Hilton and the cardasians they could care less about the violence. What is going on with the Cardasians this week?

You can also look at it from a perspective on history of civil rights: when he's dancing with those kids, they're dressed up in clothing that would've been popular in the 1960s during the time of the Civil Rights Movement. His moving away from them is symbolic in how far we've come as a society in terms of civil movements, but also how the history that we fought for seems far away and can't be related to due to the developments in the past 60 years.

So many thoughts that went by too quick This video is distracting itself and you to take time to learn it They don't want you to see what's going on Why is the message short about the video? I have not heard enough Video Not judged today But after the death it will Just Like You Fear god to not sin again please and fix you Do not save this song Or any music For you are a ritual

A mental place for black people? Seems racist how black people and only blacks have the guilt To have that He running cause he wrong and that's why he running And the white people running behind him is just like him and wrong too This isn't about guns and no Jim crow Its about all sins and runners and copes How you dodging the rest of the problems And mention gun violence You care to save yourself the gun The dance the smile The music and the other sins Instead of getting to god If you choose then keep running to darkness Money just for you Its to learn from And he reached it but it sounds as he hasn't spoke enough on it and The rest of the people almost have it right He left you confused by not speaking Because he runs from himself That's the most of it to not speak on Hide himself But behind the gun With a gun in front He a gorilla Now who holds a gun Blacks White police And Mexican army members The only stereotype is a sinner hear But where in the video is anyone getting to god. They rather not And I know And I know But I I will get to god Trust me Learn from a teacher Learn from mistakes Learn from yourself. Learn from god Do not distract yourselves even To others lives because you do But focus on your own Your truth is dodged by you yourself Even gambino dodging his own truth Proof on video And getting to god I do No marriage within me to no evil But you You would So you do To treat a gun To treat distraction To treat money To treat food A fake you I didn't judge Now accept it if I really do know you But you run (Trap? ) No sinner is cool But you think black Racist you

The real breakdown of this racist video. I'm tired of black people with the poor me this and poor me that attitude. Pull your pants up and step away from the rap music that is brainwashing you. The population of blacks in America is down to 13% and dropping. They are their own worst enemy. Every other race at some time or another were slaves but you never hear about it because we got over it and we are not trying to get free shit. Humor me and watch what is really happening to black America...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTe9bFSOVWg

This is way too obscure. The washington post is pulling these connections out of their asses. The lyrics have seriously nothing to do with *any* of this.

You guys forgot to mention the choice of lyrics. Similar to what you hear in todays rap culture. We have people talking about making drugs and killing people which adds to the problem with youth. Donald did such a fantastic job hitting all topics with this song and video. With that classic beat and vibe only he produces when he makes music.

I liked everything up to the final analogy. Comparing him fleeing to the sunken place and calling it "a mental prison for black people" was an incredible stretch. Plus in Get Out it was about racism, but not in the way most would think of it. The sunken place was just a mental prison... had nothing to do with race. It was more of a metaphor for the conscious mind being pushed to the front so it could be taken over.

This is not America.... This is what America is becoming, minus the racism(unless you watch CNN, MSNBC).. I would love to see a video that brings attention to what is causing America to become this way........

wrong. its showing the duality of america. how in one moment violent crimes are being committed and also where the new dance comes from. and by standards on phones? im guessing they missed the masks they had on. its showing gang control of areas.. also the whole part at the start saying notice the care given to the gun compared to the body and then cuts the video short so you dont see the SAME thing happening to the body as it is the gun. they're getting rid of evidence.... the guns wrapped in a cloth so the man doesn't get his finger prints on it. and the body is dragged away to be disposed of..... the people who are trying to explain the video are talking of a world they know literally nothing about other then their own bullshit they tell everyone else. Also the end is showing him getting chased down by the very people he was hanging out with 2 mins earlier and by the look in his eyes you can tell he's running for his life.... has fuck all to do with insane asylums. its showing how people who kill people have to watch out for the people around them.

It’s this actors freedom of speech to voice his opinion about what he chooses to believe about black people and their communities in America through the eyes of mainstream entertainment/ media. Unfortunately he doesn’t seem to grasp the fact that not every black person in America lives this way and doesn’t understand the difference between race and culture. Not every black person believes the culture that is glorified through the entertainment industry is remotely similar to the culture they live in their day to day lives. Believe it or not there are actually black people who live in nice communities, have great families, have college degrees, have great jobs, don’t complain about how everything in America isn’t the way they want it to be because of their race, and don’t live the life that is seen through the entertainment industry because they live in the real world.

Again the music is good but the message is over exaggerated and not congruent with reality. Don't misconstrue me. Trust me would you rather live in the USA or somewhere like Venezuela or Denmark. Stop complaining where you live.

the older cars could also represent the second amendment. When those cars first came out they more than likely worked fine and people enjoyed them, now with their age though there's a lot of problems with the cars and they could very easily cause accidents just like the second amendment. Sure it was good back then and it protected people guns have changed though.
