That's Not Trayvon Martin's Dad In Childish Gambino's "This Is America" Video

That's Not Trayvon Martin's Dad In Childish Gambino's

To say the video politically charged is an understatement: "This Is America" is a confronting look at gun violence, police brutality, and the fractured social state in the U.S. right now.

See the full video below, which was directed by Hiro Murai, who has worked on several episodes of "Atlanta". And despite the attractive distractions in life, it's important to acknowledge and stay focused on the injustices that surround us at any given second. But as protests, police clashes and chaos ensue in the background, he continues to sing oblivious to his environment. Despite frequent gun-related tragedies and subsequent national debates over gun control, the NRA and gun owners only seem to hug their semi-automatic rifles tighter and spout the Second Amendment louder.

It's a confronting look at the horrifying gun violence ravaging the U.S., and the ease at which it's ignored. This definitely won't be the last we hear from him. If you think anything other than gun and police violence, you obviously need to catch up on your celebrity politics. There's no release date yet for the new album, but we can probably expect it sometime before the end of the year.

Some are commenting that West should should be turning out the same type of relevant, thought-provoking music instead of pushing out songs with lyrics like "poopity scoop", which is found in his new song "Life Yourself".

Obviously, the liberal media thinks the whole thing is genius and has "LAYERS" of deep thoughts that need to be analyzed and thought over before viewers can fully understand and appreciate the profound brilliance of the message portrayed in this music video.

The new single marks Glover's first new foray into music since his Grammy-nominated 2016 album Awaken, My Love!
