      Stop all the fuzziness, this description has a meaning. It’s right in front of our eyes, we need to know and understand.

    3. what appears to be the grinch with a gun451

    4. autismo

    5. maliyah Hayes

      THATS WHY ITS CALLED THIS IS AMERICA DUHHHH AND ITS REAL ITS TRUE

    6. Peter Matthews

      I guess having an all black cast represents the fact there are no more whites living there.

    7. Damario Haynes

      This is the stupidly and the narrow mindedness of Whites and just a few of the injustices they committed against Blacks. It's 2018 and unfortunately Blacks are still discriminated against by a lot of narrow minded fools. No one is better than the other, because were all the human race.

    8. Armonee Rogers

      STAY WOKE!!!!!

    9. Brendan Manetz

      There were 10 choir singers but only 3 bloodstains on the wall...

    10. Anaclara Pérez

      so good! Thank you!

    11. mil encarnacion

      When he on top if the car and the camera backs up, he looks like he’s hanging...

    12. dingle_mccringleberry

      a few of these interpretations are insightful, but most are bullshit

    13. None Dedly

      What you missed was the riot from every shooting "don't catch you slipin"slip in and his tatto

    14. Dez Alan

      This doesn't look like America, more like Africa

    15. RainyDays321

      I'll be honest and admit that I thought the black man in the white horse was a vine reference

    16. Sariah the Elf Queen

      This was really helpful thanks

    17. Randi Mobley

      Was her running from the racism?

      1. what appears to be the grinch with a gun451

        Very cool

    19. gardensofthegods

      And still even in this day and age more blacks are dying at the hands of other blacks with guns...the irony.

    20. TruePowerIsMine

      Great video.

    21. shane lauer

      I don’t get it. There is nothing hidden in this video. The bottom line of this video is all white people are racist and cops kill any black person they can.

    22. danis wara

      What if all things that you mentioned is just unintentional. After all the meaning behind the video itself didn't made any particular story

    23. darrell gillespie

      Or when he says "this a celly" he means that the world is set up in such a way that we don't have a way to get out of it.

    24. KILLER GAMER2

      Is that real shoting

    25. awesome Mario 64

      🤔

    26. j v

      Great book report. See me after class.

    27. X sniperrzXx

      Don’t get why they made the screen black when he shot the gun but yea i know he shot someone BUT ITS FAKE!

    28. Krosit The Dragon

      Could this mean his songs will have a story?

    29. Krosit The Dragon

      Could this mean his songs will have a story?

    30. Redstone Rekkerz

      1:39 hype

    31. Link Anater

      When he says I’m on Gucci im so pretty he is talking about how people always need to have nice stuff to be pretty and will kill to have it

    32. M4x Chillax

      Did anyone notice a dancer doing the mask off dance??

    33. Zoeyeliza Hernandez

      At one point a cat and a chicken were together and normally the cat would eat the chicken. That says that people should treat each other equally

    34. george kontalexis

      Will you stop this shit with the slavery thing about blacks how many years do you think we can handle this? If you want to end slavery once and for all try to fix the problems the native americans have !

    35. Nadya Tioriman

      Its sounds funny But the meaning is dark 🙃

    36. Thay Almeida

      In 1:05 i believe that he is imitating Uncle Ruckus from the boondocks...

    37. Dr3adL0rdhg

      This video is biased towards black people. It tries to make it like black people are the victim from places in the lyrics and video where that’s not the issue

    38. Frosty Ghost

      This shit is so gay.....

    39. Tyler Mateaki

      Towards the end the people dancing run and they have school uniforms on and the man acts as if he has a gun and I think that says school shootings

    40. The Bella is awesome

      0:26 lmao caracachr

    41. Saniyahqueenofhearts matthew

      this is not true

    42. Colton McConathy

      This is a bunch of bullshit

    43. Colton McConathy

      Bro they are just literally grey pants

    44. PeterLambert2211

      As a white guy can I ask, why is it so hard to escape America like you are saying Gambino is trying to do at the end of the video. What does it mean to escape America? Are you talking about leaving the country? Are you talking about escaping the culture or the past? Aren't we all trying to do that, and does continuing to bring the past up make it harder or easier to escape it? How much responsibility does the black community have for their own unhappiness and oppression? Is it 0 %? 50%? 100% All of points you are trying to make seem like smoke and distractions that fall apart under the lightest scrutiny. Please educate me.

    45. Official Maxwell Armstrong

      Who ever isn’t dancing like him he kills them

    46. Remas Gweli

      That guy who he killed is alive and he killed him so how is it right and how is he alive

    47. Tyebskeleton

      By the way I think why the song name is this is America because the horse guy looks like Paul Revere to me

    48. MyRedPony1

      "This a celly, that's a tool" is about the murder of 22-year-old black man, Stephon Clark, who was shot dead in his own backyard earlier this year b/c LE assumed he had a gun when he really only had a cell phone.. Your explanation of that part is not accurate. Also, pleas read the comment under min by Matthew Burgos.

    49. C- Lo

      Play along.

    50. Kevin Hermoso

      3:39 thats a RED cloth?!
