I made an inference that the man represents all the innocent black men or boy who were kill for being colored, by people of white privilege. Also it tells us as black people we need to stand together and not be distracted. A question I would ask Childish Gambino is in making the video did he question if people of out nation see the real meaning behind the song instead of the cool dance moves?

It’s about a counter-narrative and it really leaves you with chills.”
