I don’t get it. There is nothing hidden in this video. The bottom line of this video is all white people are racist and cops kill any black person they can.

At one point a cat and a chicken were together and normally the cat would eat the chicken. That says that people should treat each other equally

As a white guy can I ask, why is it so hard to escape America like you are saying Gambino is trying to do at the end of the video. What does it mean to escape America? Are you talking about leaving the country? Are you talking about escaping the culture or the past? Aren't we all trying to do that, and does continuing to bring the past up make it harder or easier to escape it? How much responsibility does the black community have for their own unhappiness and oppression? Is it 0 %? 50%? 100% All of points you are trying to make seem like smoke and distractions that fall apart under the lightest scrutiny. Please educate me.

"This a celly, that's a tool" is about the murder of 22-year-old black man, Stephon Clark, who was shot dead in his own backyard earlier this year b/c LE assumed he had a gun when he really only had a cell phone.. Your explanation of that part is not accurate.

Gambino is a race baiter.

You know how black children are disadvantaged in America?

The 79% of them born to single black mothers. Take responsibility for your actions.

p.s. Blacks are destroying South Africa.

It seems strange that “a moment of silence” is marked with a hit off of a joint. Wouldn’t getting high make this moment less reverent? What is he saying by conflating those messages?
