It's a powerful video with some strong imagery that sticks with you after you've finished watching it, including some of Glover's erratic facial expressions (representing mental instability) and the sheer joyfulness of the dance juxtaposed with the casual killing.

Glover, 34, said it himself during his opening monologue on "SNL".

"This is America" premiered after Glover hosted the parody show Saturday Night Live on May 5.

"We easily forget about the shootings and tragedies and get distracted by silly dances, memes and viral videos", twitter user T wrote.

Many fans are skeptical of the Solo movie, but several agree that Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian is already a standout.

Trump to Skip US Embassy Opening in Jerusalem
While Israel views Jerusalem as its capital, Palestinians view East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump , and son-in-law, Jared Kushner , who serve as advisers to the president, will also attend.

In a sketch, which riffed off both A Quiet Place and the recent Kanye West controversy, Donald Glover and his group attempted to outrun the monsters hunting them.

While fielding questions in 2016 about his abrupt departure from the hit NBC comedy Community, Glover appeared to hope for the death of Donald Trump. After being introduced by Zoe Kravitz, who casually held a red cup before she joined the party on stage, Childish debuted a new song, "Saturday".

Rich in symbolism and layered with question-raising imagery, the music video shows what it means to be black in trigger-happy America. He then asks you to weigh in on Facebook with your thoughts on his new music video, "This is America".

What else would one expect to see in a music video by a famous rapper titled "This is America"? Later, he guns down a gospel choir in a scene eerily reminiscent of the 2015 terrorist attack at a Charleston church that killed nine people attending a bible study. The accompanying music video for the more serious "This Is America" dropped online shortly before the episode aired.
