Hey Dads! What does Childish Gambino's This is America have to do with Star Wars? What's the connection with SOLO: A Star Wars Story?

I watched This is America by Childish Gambino (AKA Donald Glover) and I figured that I should do a Dad Reviews reaction to this music video because I'm wondering if YouTube should censor This is America because of how graphic the nature of this music video is.

When I first watched This is America by Childish Gambino, I was sitting in my living room on my laptop and my son was watching something else on TV. My initial reaction was "I don't want my 5 year old to see this", and it surprised me that YouTube did not have a filter for this video.

There is a lot of symbolism in Childish Gambino's This is America, and so I watched a lot of other videos about what some of these symbols mean. It was very provocative because you can tell that he took the time to think about what he was creating. I like art that makes you think.

In my research, I discovered that Donald Glover is playing Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars Movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Since this music video was released less than 1 month before the new Star Wars movie was released, it led me to wonder if this was done on purpose.

Is Disney trying to leverage an up-and-coming artist with a very poignant message about what he thinks a black man in America is like to sell more tickets to the Star Wars movie? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below, and I'd love to know how old you are in the comments as well.
