  1. Charlemagne…stop acting like ur culture and problems are so complex, in fact many are simple solutions, a little accountability will go a long way. And CHARLEMAGNE, black on black crime is not a stereotype, its a fact.

  2. We see it. Not all white people are ignorant to what's happening. I got the same thing you guys did from the video, Breakfast Club.

  3. I really liked the video. It took me about 4 times watching it to fully understand everything but I will say this.. I wouldn’t go too far to assume that all white people will assume that some narrative of the video is black on black crime. I’m a white guy from the middle of Iowa and the first thing I saw in most situations was Gambino portraying a white man. Just clarifying that this didn’t paint a black in black situation in my head at all. Good message though!

  4. 4 years ago when he was on the breakfast club, CTG criticized him for caring about what white people think, and he's on here talking about how white people are going to view this video.

  5. So when 21 savage or kodak walkin round with choppas in music videos it ain't a problem get outta here with yall woke asses take a nap

  6. I Guess everyone’s Interpretation is different, IN NO WAY DID I THINK HE WAS PORTRAYING BLACK ON BLACK CRIME, HES JUST TELLING THE STORY OF AMERICA, I DON’T AGREE WITH CHARLEMAGNE AND ITS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A SHOCK VALUE. OH AND I GUESS YOU CANT BE PRO BLACK IF YOU MARRIED OUTSIDE YOUR RACE, DUMB AZZ COMENT!!!!
    Best Video of 2018 …..Pure Genius and Real!!!!

  7. All we see is black culture completely abandoning any responsibility for their actions in modern society, gang violence doesn't matter, cops shooting three times as many unarmed white men as black men doesn't matter; blacks are still the only "REAL" victims of police violence, drug violence and decay in your communities doesn't matter or isn't your fault. All I see are insolent children with no fathers to raise them. What it meant to me was that someone recognizes that ALL of us regardless of skin color are fucked in the head and we have to do something to heal our community, the American Community that you are a part of, or all of us are going to regret not doing so.

  8. Its super annoying that he keeps thinking a white guy shouldve been shooting… like cleary that was a choice that was made for a reason.

  9. I disagree with CTG on the notion of black on black violence, other than slavery. Black on black violence is the biggest set back amongst black ppl. And I know a lot black ppl want to turn the blind eye on that issue but that's something that needs to change and soon. Hopefully future generations can change that and turn their anger on those that been putting their feet on their necks but unfortunately I believe this cycle will never end.

  10. Amazing video. Amazing artist. To put aside all hidden meaning and symbolism in the video for one second, my initial impression of the video wasn't "black on black crime" or "that should have a white dude". None of that was in my mind. I just saw Gambino portraying America, PERIOD. Everyone is "disturbed" by the shock of the choir shooting in the video or when he first shot the man in the hood… that's EXACTLY how it happens and been happening. Everything is good until it's not. Everything is chill and all we want is to consume what's in front of us until we are literally shocked to turn our heads to see something else and unfortunately it seems to take something as brutal as a shooting to do it. But then we light a j and back to normal again. Cyclical. Americans kill Americans. This.is.America.

  11. I’m white and I definitely didn’t just see a black guy shooting black people. He was saying “this is America” then showing us America. He was kind of z narrator to me. The choir being shot was obviously a reference to Charleston and we know that was a white guy, Dylan Roof. The entire video was so rich in symbolism and provocative there are several trending videos analyzing it because it’s so fascinating and layered. you’re wrong that all we see is a black guy being violent. It’s brilliant Donald Glover shining a light on our hypocrisy.

  12. I agree with Charlemagne, the Gentiles are a slow minded people, due to the prevalence of Neanderthal DNA in their genomes, we must make things very clear to them or they will rationalize away there much needed and never failing white guilt. Hitler wanted to burn the books of his people for a reason. The Gentiles are a desolate group that mend and destroy pretty much everything they touch eventually… but the first shall be lost and the last shall be first in these last days…”cocaine white body, look like Gentile” think about it. Learn the true history, not through Wikipedia, but books. Seek learning from the best books. The mystery’s of this world are contained therein.

  13. I’m a white person and I don’t see black people killing black people 😂 I see AMERICANS killing one another and we quite literally “dance” around the issues, but that’s just me

  14. I never even thought for an instance that the shooter needed to be white to make it more insightful. It would've been too obvious.

  15. Should’ve had a white teen with a bowl haircut shoot up the church and a crooked cop shoot the man sitting down cmon man. He make my non singing non rapping make a song and do a correct video. And after the cop shot the blk man dance with the kids after cause that’s how these cops like to distract ppl with that fake joyful bull like speak on us dying and take mf accountability
