After April’s lyric video, The-Dream shows that he had some truly massive plans for “Black.” The song, a message of Black empowerment, uses modern illustrations for racism (the violence in Chicago, materialistic stereotypes, Tommy Hilfiger’s racist remarks) as well as iconic mentions of Marvin Gaye, Malcolm X, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to make a prideful statement about his connection to the color of his skin, and the legacy. The video includes “Fight The Power”-style signs of various countries dealing with racism, needing change, and many races and faces represented.
