"This is America" music video is specifically referencing being black in America, not just American violence. Black people should be here for our entertainment, white people like their smiling gospel faces and when they sing and dance like minstrels, but stand by and watch them all get shot at and chased by police and just carry on with our day. There's loads of thinkpieces about the music video that go through all of the references. (e.g.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.2a804eec594a)
