+Dear Ashley That's Me that's weird... Because in this video I see a person who isn't white performing as a white person. Doesn't have to be positive or negative... Just has to be racial. You're the, "can't be racist against white people" type because it has to do with a power, right? Does a popular actor, writer, producer, and singer not have inherent power and influence over others? Blackface definition makes no mention of power. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/blackface

lmao I actually recognized Donald Glovers' "old man voice" a little bit, I guess I watched the B-Boi Stance video way too many times. They did an amazing job with social media and stuff hiding the fact that he played the character though so during the episode I was like "Wait, is that Donald Glover?" but rebuffed myself because I'd seen that picture of them with Teddy Perkins on instagram lmfao

Such creativity and camera framing techniques! All the things that even I as a photographer didn't notice as I watched. There is so much more going on in frame than the average person realizes. I wanted Hiro to do the whole episode!

Such a fantastic episode for a gripping story (good job writers) and fantastic direction (head cinematographer needs a pat on the back aswell). I wasn't the biggest fan of season two as compared to season one, but this episode was absolutely stunning, creepy and weird, every performance was on point. I was biting my nails at 4am while watching it was so good. Loved to see the breakdown.... Full episode maybe?? Well done sir

Is the guy ment to be like Michael Jackson? Because he's watching a video of the father who wasn't impressed with his music all the time And the the dude has similar features to Michael and the high voice I also noticed a black fedora on the book self.

DTR396 Michael Jackson bleached his black skin to hide his vitiligo. Donald Glover wanted to mimic that look. No whiteface. And yes, blackface is WRONG!
