I completely agree. I think this video should be discussed as it covers some of the major issues that our society is confronting. Teens in America are growing up in this culture of mass violence and prejudice. How can we prevent this from shaping them? What does this video represent? What does it really teach us? In my opinion the video shocked me. I had heard the song and thought it was super catchy and fun to listen to. However, when I saw the video, I did not know if I should find the song amusing anymore. It covered so many serious topics that we all need to pay attention to and be aware of in our everyday lives. Is the video asking for change or illustrating that this is how we are, how we have always been, and how we always will be?
