image004

Is this reality? … you might be wondering after watching the video for the new Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino new song, ‘This Is America‘. Remember he is an actor and in this mini movie, his acting is for Oscar. The tune is a heavy bass-beats song with a gospel choir in it and some really heavy lyrics. Young Thug in the end sings:

You just a Black man in this world
You just a barcode, ayy
You just a Black man in this world
Drivin’ expensive foreigns, ayy
You just a big dawg, yeah
I kenneled him in the backyard
No probably ain’t life to a dog
For a big dog

This is a statement that you cannot unsee. This video and tune, speaks the truth in many ways, that we (living outside US) are not able to witness, live though we realize watching the world and news around us, that they’re driven into whole weird directions, untrue for the human kind. I’m not gonna get into details for the video, as i discover more and more by watching it. Check it out your own and you’ll realize that this mini movie with Childish Gambino as the star-actor is a truth-telling story of multiple events. It’s the news on TV, combined into a video clip with choreography, to manipulate our minds, while ‘This Is America’ is playing loud.

This is my tune of the week.
