Er — let’s hope that’s pretense.

A black rapper released a music video for a new single Tuesday in which he can be seen lynching a young white child.

The Florida rapper, XXXTentacion, put out the music video for his song, “Look at Me!,” which examines police brutality and racism in America. One part of the video shows XXXTentacion placing a white child and a black child in front of a noose. The rapper encourages the white child to place it around his neck and then proceeds to hang him.

Viewers can see the boy’s feet twitch as he slowly dies.

The video follows, but be warned: In addition to the graphic portrayal of violence, the lyrics are abnormally vile.

LaShawnna Stanley, a casting director, told Fox News the two ran into trouble trying to find parents willing to let their child do the scene.

“I called a lot of parents. It was a direct booking. No one was okay with their white child getting lynched,” Stanley said. “With all the racial tension in the world right out they were nervous.”

Stanley added that the scene of the white child hanging is meant to point out that America no longer finds the shooting of black men shocking.

This video has already been viewed 7.3 million times on YouTube — which had no problem running it.

So this is where America has come.
