excuse me if yall have talked about this video and i missed the post. i actually like some of this kids music, and the 2 songs in the vid are dope. the hanging part is crazy, he talks about emmit till and philando castel, then brings a black and white kid on a stage and chooses the white kid to be hanged. it's crazy. also this vid has 13 million views with 585k likes and 100k dislikes.

Seriously though....ain't no way I'm taking a 19-year-old with anger issues and possible mental illness seriously on politics.

When I see this, I see someone going for shock in lieu of making commentary that'll resonate with people. The idea that people would've been okay with the black boy is silly because the fact is that neither are okay.

13196936, People been ok with Black kids being lynched for hundreds of years.

Where have you been?

lol

Did you hear about this kid Tamir Rice who
was lynched on camera? Racists still defend
that. And they're more outraged over a
fictional hanging of a white kid.
13197318, true or not....I still think XXXTentacion is doing this for shock.

The way the hanging is presented in the video doesn't really add anything constructive to the conversation of than the Matthew Mcconaughey Time to Kill closing statement 'imagine this person was white'.

I get it but there's nothing else to video besides that IMHO.

13198766, You should read the lyrics.

He's calling out anti-white racism. Yah...he's using shock value but it's not for nothing. There's a lot of substance in the lyrics.
13198768, Nothing else to the video besides that ?

"Although the video features some disturbing imagery, Stanley says it was meant to send a message about the way White people have been desensitized to violence against Black people. According to her, the White and Black children are meant to symbolize innocence."

13198784, dude we don't have to agree.....

I think the timing of this video is convenient given XXX's current troubles, the album release, and the current political climate.

I don't think he's wrong for having an opinion, I just don't care about his opinion so much. I'm meh on his political commentary.



Having said that, I find his album to be interesting and worth discussion on its own merits.
13198789, I never said we had to agree

None of that proves nothing else is in the video.
13196965, You do know the state of South Carolina electrocuedt a 14 hr old?

And none were brought to any kind of justice which means it's pretty much accepted
13196947, 2nd track was surprisingly decent.

13198762, I don't get the reaction.
Posted by denny, Sat Sep-30-17 06:32 PM
My reading of his lyrics is that he's telling black people to stop being vindictive against white people and cops and to stop black on black crime. lol. It's like a hodgepodge of anti-blm rhetoric.

What the hell? Either I'm reading the lyrics completely wrong or almost everyone else is.
