Nicole Arbour Slaps Her Whiteness On Childish Gambino’s “This Is America”

This is why we can’t have nice things – Black people, probably. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Earlier this month, #ChildishGambino dropped his powerful, politically charged song and visual “This is America.” The video showed themes of violence, from mass shootings to police brutality, and race relations in the United States, all while discussing the distractions amid the chaos.

As the video made its rounds, the culture appreciated the visual representation of the struggle, but it was only a matter of time until ‘they’ put their grubby hands on it and hurdled the entire point.

Over the weekend, YouTube comedian Nicole Arbour released a “feminist” version of Gambino’s masterpiece. Like Gambino’s powerful “This is America” video, Arbour’s “This Is America: Women’s Edit” was filmed in a warehouse, discussing equal pay and boobs, as if that is even remotely close to the importance of Black lives.

But, there was one interesting moment in her video that did feature a Black person. In fact, the woman was breastfeeding a baby when Arbour came behind her with a phone camera, as two men dragged her away. While it remains unclear what the moment even meant, one can only assume….(comment below).

In the meantime, Black Twitter dragged Arbour for the attempt.

  1. Are you guys stupid? What that part meant about the breast feeding? Like who runs this page. Clearly it’s about the issue of women getting shit for feeding in public… like do you live under a rock? And what’s wrong with making a remix or different version to also talk about women’s rights and daily issues? Like shouldn’t we be standing together to stop these social issues? This article is over the top and ignorant. Educate yourself about issues before looking like an idiot. Zero problems with this video as it’s to point out women rights issues.

    • stfu idiot! breast feeding in public?? OH THE TORMENT!!! just some pink idiot that wants to degrade anything black people do and make fun of it! Keep your raw chicken looking ass outta here ! boiled quarter body having ass!

    • Having equal pay and getting over sexualized is nowhere near as bad as fearing for your life… not to mention black and Latina or Hispanic women are more over sexualized than white women. The point is she could have come up with her OWN idea and video instead of putting her problems as a white Canadian woman over black America’s… And the video was bad lol
