You can think or believe what you want and I will do the same. People like you try to shove this excrement down the throats of everyone and expect us to follow like sheep. I don't and won't buy into it...ever.

This is is where we disagree. I feel songs like this are divisive, not inclusive and separate America. They attempt to bring up a culture by bringing down another.

E. Plurabus Enum = Out of many, One.

I personally feel the diversity focus hurts America instead of focusing on us all being Americans. We should be one nation.

I also feel that this negative culture is what stops people from advancing. It is not the hardware, it the software that is the issue.

Why do a disproportionately amount of Asians succeed in this country over all others?

Yup. I totally agree. And I will add that I don't owe this talentless douche bag jack shit, regardless of what his grandma told him.

Anybody else find it odd that a bunch of bilge rats are so easily bent out of shape over some song winning an award.

I think most of us are just laughing at how stupid it is. It's winter and were bored.

I don't like awards shows, and largely ignore them, but I wonder how many people here actually know who he is? Stand up comedian and writer/actor with a degree from NYU. Song is a satire on the mentality on what many black Americans feel the country has come to, including the sad reality of the ingrained perpetuation of the handout/welfare system. It is also mocking current rap 'music' style (many of his songs are more R&B), and state of American 'values'. I don't like the music, but the more white people this pisses off behind keyboards, the more accurate it is.

Most people who bash the song for supporting ideals, look up satire.

A little bit about the guy, for the few of you interested.

The multi-talented Donald Glover is a writer, actor, musician, comedian, producer and director, who performs under the stage names Childish Gambino and mcDJ. He was born Donald McKinley Glover at Edwards Air Force Base, California, and was raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia. His mother, Beverly (Smith), ran a daycare center, and his father, Donald Glover, is a retired postal worker. He is not, despite rumors, related to actor Danny Glover. He has a younger brother, Stephen Glover, a screenwriter and producer. Donald graduated from New York University with a degree in Dramatic Writing in 2006.

In 2006, at age 23, while still living in the NYU dorms, Glover joined the writing staff of NBC comedy 30 Rock (2006), for which he received a Writers Guild of America Award nomination in 2009. Later credited as an executive story editor, he also had several cameos in front of the camera. In 2009, he left "30 Rock" for a role on the comedy series Community (2009), in which he played an athlete in a rather odd study group, opposite Chevy Chase and Joel McHale. The show ran for six seasons.

Glover is the creator, writer, producer, director and star of the series Atlanta (2016), which debuted on FX in 2016. The series was an immediate critical and commercial hit, winning the 2017 Golden Globe Award for Best Series and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Musical or Comedy) for Glover. At the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards, Glover won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, while the show also earned four other nominations: Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Glover (for the episode Atlanta: B.A.N. (2016)) and his brother, Stephen (for the episode Atlanta: Streets on Lock (2016)).

His first stand-up special aired on Comedy Central in March 2010. As Childish Gambino, Glover has released the studio albums "Camp" (2011), "Because the Internet" (2013) and "Awaken, My Love!" (2016). In 2015, he was nominated for Grammy Awards in 2015 for Best Rap Album for "Because the Internet" and Best Rap Performance for his single "3005" In 2018, he was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for "Awaken, My Love!" and Record of the Year for the hit "Redbone," winning the Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance.

On the big screen, Glover's credits include Magic Mike XXL (2015), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), and The Martian (2015). He will star as the young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) and will provide the voice of Simba in a remake of The Lion King (2019).

Oh, the tone here is far from casual and easygoing.

You realize it is a top 25-30 school in the USA in every academic ranking, right?
