The White Mandingos combine punk and protest to incite a riot with the official video for “What You Waitin’ On” directed by Horus for People Suck. The footage presented by Mass Appeal features MURS rapping over news reels and clips of graphic violence perpetrated against people of color. The Mandingos frontman indicts a number of antagonists, firing shots at everything from crooked police departments to organized religion, politicians, misplaced priorities and everyday people with negative agendas driven by bigoted beliefs. He calls on the people to enact the change they wish to see in the world themselves, instead of taking the historically passive route to progress that has found political, economic and social gains for people of color arriving at a slow and steady trickle. Check the footage below to watch the official video for “What You Waitin’ On.” Purchase The Ghetto Is Tryna Kill Me via iTunes.
