Childish Gambino - This Is America (grido di allarme nell' America di oggi!)

Sta facendo tanto discutere l'ultimo brano interpretato dall'attore e cantante Childish Gambino - This Is America , in Italia lo ritroveremo nell'ultima serie di Atlnta (17 Maggio su Fox). Il brano è chiaramente un grido d'allarme su quello che oggi continuano ad essere i valori di una grande fetta dell'America, ancor più accentuata forse con la vittoria di Trump.  

 La socità afroamericana negli ultimi anni ha sofferto una grave retrocessione sotto forma di propria identità. Quello che il cantante "denuncia" come dal video si può ben notare, e l'utilizzo eccessivo ed improprio delle armi da parte (anche) della polizia.Il testo dell canzone fa anche un po' di autocritica per quei modelli che influenzano la società dei consumi, e di come il rischio di omologazione per sentirsi accettati sia alto. Accusa e autoaccusa in una società descritta con rabbia, che getta sale sulle ferite proprie e su quelle contraddizione che tanto caratterizzano un paese anche troppo liberale.
