Every so often, a video gets released and it makes you think. The unofficial video for The Throne’s (Kanye and Jay Z) single “No Church in the Wild” featuring Frank Ocean is one of those video. In the video, the course of American history has been altered and African Americans are cast in the roles of the slaveowners and Caucasian Americans are the slaves. In what is sure to be a very controversial video, black slaveowners pursue a runaway white slave deep into the woods and it really makes you think about how things would have been different if the roles were reversed. Big props to High5Collective for the video.
