Gotta give it to ya B. (Disclaimer: not a Beyoncé fan). This video/song is not all about “slaying”. It’s a reminder to the youth of the importance of staying true to your roots even if society tries to shut out your culture. This has been a reoccurring phenomenon in America since it’s formation, beginning with the removal of Native American culture by literally exterminating them. The ones who survived assimilated into the “white” culture (not all but the majority did). The result has been a prevalent white culture in society. The video clearly illustrates history repeating itself. The implicit message I received was to embrace your culture and ethnic differences as it is essential for society to stop seeing “white” as superior and as the end goal. Also, keep ya money up! (This is just my interpretation). Thanks for the reminder Beyoncé🙏🏼.
