Rapper Joyner Lucas released a jaw-dropping video titled “I’m Not Racist” yesterday that immediately went viral on various forms of social media and has Americans of all races talking across the internet. Within hours there has already been hundreds of thousands of views on Facebook and YouTube and growing at the speed of light! (Video Below)
The video starts out with a bearded white man wearing a MAGA hat and mouthing the words of Lucas as he raps to an intermittent beat about what he feels are problems the “white” community has with the “black” community. The white man in the video is seen saying these things out of frustration to a black man who is sitting across from him, eventually walking around the table and slamming it with his fists to get his point across.

The issues rapped about include everything from blacks being on food stamps to comments made by Eminem to common issues raised by Black Lives Matter…repeatedly saying “I’m not racist” in between each of his arguments.
After what appears to be the white man finishing his argument, he gives the black man sitting across a chance to voice his argument about everything he was discussing. The black man across the table begins mouthing his side of the argument to the same issues to an intermittent beat and voice of rapper Joyner Lucas in the background, repeatedly saying “I’m not racist.” He is seen expressing his anger to get his point across and, at one point, knocks the MAGA hat off the white man’s head.
