Donald Glover, the mastermind behind the hit television show "Atlanta," has taken on his other persona, Childish Gambino, to make an important statement.
Gambino just released a music video that everyone is talking about called "This is America." Watch below.
You will probably need to watch the video more than once to process what you are looking at. However, a shirtless Gambino can be seen in the forefront, while their is chaos happening behind him. Many have their own interpretations of what is going on here.
For the people who didn’t understand childish gambino’s video & is only focusing on his dancing is just mind blowing. It clearly shows the violence that is currently going on in America, the people entertaining viral dance moves instead of what’s really happening & so much more.— Wait What?

Childish Gambino's video speaks to gun violence, police brutality, and the exploitative nature of how we glorify & exploit black entertainment while turning a blind eye to the death of these same citizens by our own guns.
Watch it.https://t.co/BIrVigZFJZ pic.twitter.com/mvhjkWEK7E
