As a perennial paternalistic look at the nice "Blacks"... With his video clip "This is America", it s far from what we could expect  with more than 300 million of views in less than one week ... 


 

Do you remember "Community"? If not, just look at the video clip, you will certainly recognize Donald  Glover one of the actor... better known nowadays as Childhish Gambino. We could think seeing him: "Sweet face, nice humour, sympathic guy"... Shortly, we can just think: "Waouh! A nice ethnical minority, now, for sure he's gonna evolve as a great Samuel Lee Jackson, Will Smith,  or whatever other funny Eddy Murphy... As a perennial paternalistic look at the nice "Blacks"... With his video clip "This is America" is far from what we could expect. This, with more than 300 million of views in less than one week ... Before to read this article, better see the video yourself, first, if you did not have the occasion yet.

Not surprising that all around the world, people have the same feeling of perpetual injustice : violence and brutality of the police, corruption, contreband, guns, elitism, falls of consciousness etc . In a few words : end of democraty.

For example :

  • "This is Nigeria" from the the icone of rap singer Falz is in the spotlight, to highlight poverty of actions from the government and corruption of the police;
  • This is Brazil is also about corruption and about the denounciation of a non ethical police, to whom State gave too much power;
  • From Axel Merryl, a Benin neighboor :  This is Africa  that also show how presidential can change to dictature;
  • This Is Irak from I-NZ  deals with  several injustices, with the unfinished war from Bush to Trump;
  • This is Syria blames the sad situation that occured from day to day within the decision of a bunch of politics from Syria and moreover from "Israel", USA, Saudi Arabia and United Arabic States;
  • This is Aghanistan is denounces the situation of Aghanistan nowadays, Afghanistan before USA interfere. The clip is done nevertheless is France.
  • From another point a view, funny "clichés" parodies : This is GermanyThis is DubaiThis is Arabia, This is Iran ... " or even better This is Malaysia by itself. More funny.
  • Even our artificial friendly intelligence game dit it with This Is Fortnite 

This is America clearly denounces injustices and police violence mainly towards minority. All the other artists that follow this clip model, lead us to believe democracy is deeply dying  in favor of oligarchic perverse powers. In the microcosm of Luxembourg, oligarchy and nepotism are also winning. More and more. Sad to say, but futhermore towards whatever minority.

Any clip coming soon to denounce "This is Luxembourg" or even "This is Europe" ? And could we believe one day on THE happy end  as ... "#ThisIsDemocracy" ?
