DIRECTED AND EDITED BY Devvon Terrell
PRODUCED BY Devvon Terrell
The setting is symbolic of the sense of where players are actually allowed to protest in the locker room hidden from the eyes of society and locked away in a room
The all red from the cast symbolizes the theme of love and togetherness
The number 7 is Colin Kaepernicks jersey number
1 is a symbol of the first breath of the universe it is the keynote to uniting humankind with each other, Spirit Guides, the Gods and other realms.
The men in suits with lion mask symbolize authority. The white gloves come from and old time of honor. The suits symbolize the corporate structure of America.
The moment where you see a flower being placed in the gun represent a strong moment during the Vietnam protest and a very powerful moment known as flower power where a protester with a gun in his face places a carnation in the barrel of the gun. It was a moment where people of all races stood up for a common goal. It effected us all thus we stood together.
The clapping and the executives holding there ears represent the ever growing volume of the conversation that is building and mounting. It’s so loud that it brings pain to the men and ultimately makes them cover there ears to ignore its power and importance
When the executive cheats and runs pass me on the line you wanna run a race that I’m leading it referring to the authority in a literal sense “you wanna run a RACE in an ethnicity context t that I’m leading as a minority man” basically conveying that instead of standing by me to understand the issue your running right ahead of me and leaving the actual issue at hand behind in the effort to get ahead of the actual problem.
The moment when we are huddled and Devvon is furiously singing fast is an example of the constant aggression seen on social media constantly between racial issues. It highlights the lyrics. “If I have a problem then you have a problem if this is a pond why am I fish on a bait” the pond represents our country and the fish on the bait represents the victims of racial issues. Conveying the problem of if one of us have an issue in this country we should take it as we all have an issue and being a minority in American culture shouldn’t be an issue that solely relies on the shoulders of one race thus why I refer to myself as the baited victim.
When I say let’s not get to hype now. It’s me crying for help that besides the noise and constant showcase of outrage a sensible and intelligent conversation can be had instead of the constant boisterous banter that we have grown to constantly seeing. Showing that we can all deep down conduct ourselves like adults.
The man in the military is greeted by Devvon and told thank you as to show respect for military personnel. As to further show that our problems at home the foundation has to be taken as serious as the issues abroad and no matter what the protest is or how angry we are at our nations social construct respect is given to the brave men and women that fight for our country day in and day out.
The cop that is seen represents the issues within the police department and the officers loyalty to each other. That no matter what police officers stand by police officers. The issue with that is that the officers primary objective is to protect the well being of its civilians and the existence of morally troubled cops versus the good ones makes the entire law enforcement community look bad. It is used to recognize that There are amazing police officer out there but also bad ones that hinder the main issue that this whole conversation is about and taint the entire community.
A gun is seen put to Devvon’s head and he goes cold this represents the silencing of a message and agenda that doesn’t suit another. Constantly in our history people that speak out against social issues are murdered, imprisoned and ultimately silenced. It shows the helplessness of never obtaining true change because there will always be someone who doesn’t agree.
