This is America: the theories behind Childish Gambino's satirical masterpiece

Marlon Wayans is a huge fan of the "This Is America" video Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, just released - not only for its message, but for what he calls Donalds' stripper-inspired choreography.

This is America is a video that needs to be watched not once, but again and again, to slowly peel away the symbolism and, very plainly, to notice everything going on in the background.

The video is made to look like it's been filmed all in one shot.

"The fact that Childish Gambino's "This is America" tackles police brutality, gun violence, media misdirection, and the use of African-Americans as a brand shield, all while dancing in Jim Crow-style caricature, shows a transcendence or mere performance and demands attention", one person tweeted.

Alex Ferguson 'awake and talking' after brain surgery
The Wales manager said he is praying for Ferguson (76) - who he calls the biggest influence in his life - to make a full recovery. Manchester United star, Ashley Young , has described how he was "deeply affected" by Sir Alex Ferguson's emergency surgery.

From Atlanta to Solo to his new album coming soon to his tour with Rae Sremmurd this summer, Donald Glover is keeping himself and his Childish Gambino persona busy before he retires Gambino permanently. He recently did an insanely cool and casual tour of the Millennium Falcon. SZA also makes a cameo in the finale. He recently left Glassnote Records for RCA ready for the release.

Others commented on how far he's come in the last few years.
