This is relevant to music because it’s relevant to making music a place that’s open. Humans and technology melted down this week – but that shouldn’t avail u...

This is America: Donald Glover’s Video is a Gripping Read

In times of great crisis, we create great art. Donald Glover’s video for his latest single This is America is great art. It’s not because it’s trying to be overly subtle to where only art connoisseurs can defuse the meaning. It’s that it trusts us to pick up what it’s dropping, so it drops a lot for us to hold.

The mother of the little boy in that racist H&M ad, in which he can be seen modeling a green hoodie with the words “Coolest Monkey In the Jungle” printed on it, has responded to the backlash.

While most Black people are upset at H&M for putting a little Black boy in a hoodie calling him a “monkey,” his mother, Terry Mango, is far from it. In fact, she doesn’t understand the outrage in the least bit, and has taken to soci...
