Early this morning, Childish Gambino embarked upon one of the biggest Twitter rants of the year. He called his lengthy spiel a "poem," and it seems to have stemmed from someone jokingly calling him a white rapper, but in it, he touches on recent issues of race in and outside of the hip-hop world.

Donald Sterling is hinted at, G-Eazy's controversial use of the n-word is mentioned, but above all, this is related to the current state of Ferguson, Missouri, where 18-year-old Mike Brown was shot to death by police earlier this week. Read the long rant below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
