Donald Glover's new music video "This Is America" has amassed more than 64 million views and inspired innumerable think pieces since its debut last weekend. Released by the actor's musical alter ego, Childish Gambino, the video depicts Glover dancing, rapping and shooting an entire choir of gospel singers, supposedly in reference to the 2015 murder of nine churchgoers by white supremacist Dylann Roof in Charleston, South Carolina, as chaos unfolds in the background. Rolling Stone contributor Tre Johnson has called the video "a nightmare we can't afford to look away from."
