Well, those who shared these fears before may have them confirmed now that this music video has been released to help promote the film. Kevon Carter’s “WGDB,” short for “We Gotta Do Better,” is a sweeping, John Legend-y sort of ballad that would actually fit the serious tone for a film with this subject matter pretty well, but things go off the rails incredibly quick. Instead of focusing on the victims of gun violence, healing the community with peace, or the outward causes, as the song starts to do, it oddly starts to dismiss the Black Lives Matter movement and young activism as pointless and states “we’re the only race who shoots and kills themselves.”
