I hated Father of the Bride when it first came out and while I eventually came to like it, it is definitely NOT their best album. Too many bad/ weird songs in that album

Are these people for real? I didn’t know people were such self pitying losers these days. Our society is doomed if people don’t stop calling themselves victims when they are among the most lucky people to live in this country in this year.

these are some of the meanest nasty people I have ever heard. They do not practice what they preach. They constantly say the meanest shit about people then tell use to treat women better and if i say that i don't like a particular black dude or girl that don't make me a racist just means I don't like them just like I don't like some white people if i tell a girl he dress is pretty that don't make me a sex harasser. GUYS WHO TRY TO GET LAID ARE NOT BAD GUYS THEY ARE JUST PEOPLE now u can go to far and be a creep or rape is not ok but a guy trying to get laid is not a criminal

I found "this is america" to be a profound expression of an artist. I don't feel it needs an explanation at least not from Donald Glover. of course there's a percentage of ppl who are stupid and will unfortunately make connections that aren't there (like the trayvon martin dad thing) but ppl do that w everything. especially now. what I got from it was how our culture is viewed from HIS perspective. how we allow distractions to avert our attention from atrocities. how we value (as a nation) guns more than actual lives. how we too participate in the perpetuation of our culture and also attribute to the violence. acknowledging that isn't denying the role others have played in our history. Donald acknowledging black on black crime IS an effort to have a conversation (as kara says) so why are y'all co ing down so hard on him? not that it shoukd matter bc its art but he also says "this a celly. that's a tool" referencing the police gunning down that young black man in the back who only had a cell phone. everyone is entitled to their opinion and I'm just sharing mine but tbr it feels like y'all just don't want to like his message so you're trying to demean his work. I have sat and listened to y'all worship some ppl on this show that I personally think set us back collectively so it's odd to hear y'all bash on this brother simply for having an opinion and expressing himself.
