This is America

Donald Glover has been a topic of conversation- some praise, some critiquing- for his recent release of the song "This is America," and the music video that followed. Analyze and/or critique Childish Gambino’s newly-released "This is America." What is being implied, implicitly or explicitly, through the imagery of the music video as well as his lyrics? It would be prudent to pay special attention to the subtle nods to various events throughout the music video, and perhaps bring in critical race theorists such as Charles Mills (author of "The Racial Contract"), James Baldwin, Angela Davis, or Audre Lorde.
