Robert Bronsdon (Hollywood Rob) May 2018
Normally I like to take some time to think about things before I write, but this is something that just needs to get said. I don’t want to think about it. I don’t even want to know about it.
But you should.
Donald Glover stars in the upcoming Disney Star Wars film Soylo as Lando Calrissian and so far his performance seems to be the one bright spot in an otherwise dismal movie. So don’t get me wrong. I am not complaining about Donny here. He is working hard to have a voice and I want to say that I support anyone who stands up and puts it out there.
This morning I watched Paul Joseph Watson’s comments on Donny’s music video “This is America.” Paul’s comment video was placed in limited state because – well I don’t know why and neither does he. It just was because…feelings. So I decided to take a look at the video that he was going on about. It has 120 million views. Do you know what 120 million views means? It means that just about everybody in merika has watched it. Nobody complained. It didn’t get put into limited state. And it starts with Donny shooting a black man in the head. It continues with him killing a choir with an AK and then he lites up a joint and dances around on a car. So the better part of ten murders by a black man and open drug abuse does not warrant limited state but somebody complaining about ten murders and drug abuse get put into limited state.
I just don’t know what to say. I suspect that y’all will have some thoughts but it leaves me feeling hopeless. How do you save a society that worships and rewards violence and drug abuse and castigates those who complain about violence and drug abuse? I got nothing for this. I would add the video if I could but you can find it yourself. I personally couldn’t understand a word he was singing.
