...and if it were a White guy instead of that retard, the internet would be on fire...

...but he's black so, its OK... its now considered art and protest in one... not at all racist... just the truth.... a truth lost in chaos.

just look at all the comments on youtube "masterpiece", "Awesome"... "best vid Ever"... yet the obviousness of the message flies right over their heads.

yeah... "this is America"... no thanks to people like him that continue to push the wrong buttons to perpetuate a problem that grows from within. This videos purpose is to point out how two different lives are two different sides of the same coin... its done badly and provides no solution... other than to continue the violence between lulls of happy dancing... only to try to run to the next bout of chaos.

..in short, Its crap and does nothing but polarize an already frayed perception of blacks.

I can only say that this video is one of the most disturbing and 'in-humane' music video's I have ever seen. Yes, there are worse, but the manner in which people were killed in it is just heinous. This is art? This is music? This is freedom of speech? This is nothing more then spreading hate and murder. For those that 'like' this video, you are sub-human.

at least it's accurate in the sense it's a black guy shooting his own people. That part surprised me.

It's a very distasteful display that does nothing for anyone....however, there are lots of horrible music videos made by just about any artist but you choose this one of all videos to try and label people. Stop doing that.

Nothing better than a bunch of white guys critiquing things in a bad rap video that they have zero life experience about except but from the narrow- minded "I'm a middle aged white guy" perspective.

Horrible video? Yes it is. But, stop trying brand all "blacks" as condoning stuff like this. It's not art it's garbage...and you'll find for every "black" that liked it, there are many more that rolled their eyes...like my hubby did.....stop trying read more in to it than that.

I couldnt understand a word that was being "sung", so I looked up the lyrics and read them. Still have absolutely no freakin idea what point is trying to be made, but I'll try to make a guess..."Artist" is complaining about the Country that provides him the opportunity to make millions of dollars and speak freely about his perception of injustices. He writes a "song" about said perceived injustices, makes more millions of dollars from song, but doesnt actually do anything to correct the perceived injustices (other than fill up his bank account).

This is America INDEED!!

...being a music video ( I use that term loosely ), posted on an open platforms (YouTube & Vimeo) it is therefore an expression of lyrics and visual representation... henceforth OPEN to CRITICISM by ANYONE regardless of life experience or skin color.

Who are you to define who can or cannot critique it?

Who are you to claim to know what an entire group of people are or are not based on a bad rap video?

The fact is your are not critiquing the artistry (or lack thereof) of any of the musical, visual, or lyrical elements of the video. You are only singling out the things in the video that fit your world view of who or what you think ALL black people are about.

You are not saying that the individuals involved with that video are this or that...but ALL blacks are this or that because of elements in that crappy ass video. There's a difference.

You could find thousands of other good videos that could argue against your negative stance that "blacks" are this or that but you won't post those. Don't seem to care much when there's an obvious message or good musical content in a video....doesn't feed your world view of what you think black are about huh?

and you've lost the point of the video...

like I already said, the message will likely be lost (and it has). The message is clear to those that can tie the lyrics and visual symbolism together... the black community has to deal with violence, prejudice and self destructive behavior... it is the new norm... "this is America".

granted its done badly in my opinion... and does nothing to solve the issue. it only highlights them... but then again he's known for being controversial, and he knows he can get away with it too... that was my point.

LM, get off of the race wagon. I really don't care if it was Vanilla Ice or PSY doing that video....it was sub-human in nature and glorified violence. No matter the race, color or religion/lack of, it is a heinous video.

WOW what an amazingly racist and sexist comment
"Nothing better than a bunch of white guys critiquing things in a bad rap video that they have zero life experience about except but from the narrow- minded "I'm a middle aged white guy" perspective."

Just remember -- if the world didn't suck, we would fall off.
