“I wanna be a white rapper” – Childish Gambino

Last night, Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) shared some thoughts on Twitter about race, people’s perceptions of him, and more. He tweeted all this after hearing a friend sobbing and talking to his mom and clarified this morning that he wasn’t under the influence when he was tweeting. Although he doesn’t mention them specifically, the events in Ferguson, Missouri could also have inspired him to speak on Twitter.

Read all he had to say above.

  • NewBeast

    fucking douchebag. his time will be over soon.

  • Justice Taylor

    He’s a douche because he’s afraid and tired of the bullshit that comes with being black in america? alright.

  • PIGSONMYKNEES

    LOL at the daugther story though

  • 33

    DAMN. THANK YOU FOR POSTING.

  • Mike

    This has to be the realest thing said on twitter in a long time.

  • Tolstroy

    I agree with you, NewBeast. Only a douchebag would be tired of being the target of racist people. That’s why I’m glad you and I are white, and so big, so we don’t have to be douchebags, we could simply be stupid assholes.

  • BostonCannonsLax

    your so fucking stupid, just get the fuck out dumbass

  • 3005

    Well, Childish Gambino is every bit as corny as G-Eazy and Community is too white for most white people so I guess he’s on the right track

  • Tolstroy

    I’m stupid?You agree with with this idiot NewBeast and I’m stupid? Get a mirror.

    He is merely pointing out that he is a “white rapper” without any of the “white privilege”. This is a real issue he is shedding light on, he’s not some “fucking douchebag”.

    Obviously, he’s not a douchebag if he’s merely voicing his anger of being a victim of racism. Now all we need to do is to get you to under sarcasm… and everybody wins. No right-thinking person could ever agree with this moron NewBeast.

  • Shawn Carroll

    Hes so tired of white dads not handing their daughter to him.. hahahahah

  • Justice Taylor

    It’s more, he’s tired of being looked down on by those types of people, the white parents.

  • Justice Taylor

    Remove your ignorance from this place.

  • G

    White dads don’t hand their daughter over to black guys cause most are raised to be racist against whites.. and most are.. that’s why they don’t give AF if they go with a mexican, chinese etc. etc. Nothin to do with skin color, has to do with culture.

  • Justice Taylor

    I see where you’re coming from, but, I highly doubt they’d why most white dads don’t permit their daughters to date black guys.

    Its pretty sad how bad our country/world has been even still today with racial views. I myself am a white male whose had police brutality done to myself. Now, I often get that I looked mixed due to my dark white skin tone and wavy curly hair but Ive personally never really cared. The cop pulled me over for failing to use my turn signal. The cop looked at me and then to my friend who is actually mixed and before even going back to his squad car made me get out of my car then forced me into his. He then said he was going to drug/alcohol test my friends and I because we were “clearly on something.” When I told him we’d both be happy to take the tests to prove him wrong he then started writing me a ticket. When I asked what the ticket was for he said “he could write it for whatever the fuck he wants!” Then I mumbled something about how that is really illegal, he got even more pissed and basically tossed my out of his car telling us to go home (it was like midnight.) he then followed me to my friends house, waited for me outside to leave then followed me home. Now, I clearly know that story isnt nearly as bad as what many African Americans deal with on an every day basis, but I just wanted to share my story and how nearly any one (esp. those who aren’t white/dont look white) can have to deal with police brutality.

  • Justice Taylor

    yeah, it’s definitely a thing that happens regardless of race. I think police positions often attract people who wish that Call of Duty was real and those with aggression issues and those who’ve always felt powerless and see the position as an opportunity to throw their weight.
    But, due to racial issues, I definitely still think that it happens to Black people and other people of color more than white people. but to be fair, I don’t have enough research to state this as a fact.

  • destiny’slovechild

    And I guess sleeping with white women is one of the said benefits of being white. Typical white washed negro

  • destiny’slovechild

    And the fact that he can’t sex white women without criticism is the greatest disappointment about not being white for Gambino

  • destiny’slovechild

    If you’re getting mistaken for being mixed because you’re dark, then aren’t you proving that race and appearance indeed DOES have something to do with who the police decide to mess with?

  • destiny’slovechild

    Nobody says police don’t hassle whites, but it’s a FACT that they hassle blacks and Hispanics WORSE and to a more extreme degree

  • destiny’slovechild

    you must mean the reverse, that most whites are raised to be racist against blacks. This would explain slavery and the Jim Crow laws where WHITES demanded segregation from blacks and had their way all the way up until 1965. And of course, they cried, complained, beat down, and lynched several blacks along the way in protest.

  • destiny’slovechild

    keep lying to yourself, G. It doesn’t help the obvious white racism come to an end.

  • Justice Taylor

    Actually, yeah, you are right about it being factual. Because there’s reports put out nearly every few days about the inequality of police action towards blacks and Hispanics as opposed to whites.

  • Evon

    Sorry if my post was confusing. That’s what I was trying to get at. That yeah, they hassle whites too but it’s far worse for those of other races.

  • CallingOutStupid

    yet your name is 3005…

  • TopJoshDragon

    My Mom’s white and I’m black. We both agree that there are far more white people that are intolerant of black people, than there are black people that are intolerant of white people. Also white people tend to be more racist towards black people than other races. I have an ethnically diverse group of friends and they said it not me. Minorities are more often accepting of others in general, because they know how it feels to be unaccepted.

    Some of my white friends said they didn’t know racism was still an issue until they witnessed what I go through and how they’re treated differently when they’re around me.

    I also have a white friend who was crying when she told me how she was mistreated while visiting her black boyfriend in NY. People were looking at her funny and being rude to her boyfriend. This is a typical eye opener for white females.

    I was rejected by a long time friend once, because she, “only dates white guys.” Who then proceeded to date a white guy that cheated on her and turned out to have a criminal record. I’ve done neither of those things.
