The Real Message of Childish Gambino’s “This is America”

hildish Gambino’s “This is America” portrays the situation in the US really well – not only through the video but through the reactions it caused.

The obvious reality (of America and of the clip) that so many people ignored is… that the shooter is black.

A black man shooting other black people and then running away from law enforcement, while he tries to shift the blame onto white people using countless distractions (which so many jumped on looking for hidden meanings).

Naturally it generated a lot of praise from left wingers, as they sift through these tiny, misleading references in the background (like they usually do) which are merely a bait they so eagerly took, exposing how ignorant they are to the most obvious things.

It’s something we can see happening every single day.

Public outrage is focused everywhere but on the main issue. The media drum up the narrative of supposedly widespread racism, of praise for Confederacy, keen gun ownership, alleged police violence and so on – everything that distracts from the biggest problem – that violence against African Americans comes overwhelmingly from other African Americans.

The shooter is almost always black.
