Jussie Smollett’s New Video Might Be the Wokest Thing Ever Created in Human History

It’s been over four months since Donald Trump was elected president, and Empire star Jussie Smollett has a lot on his mind. In fact, he’s got so much on his mind that he’s packed every single thing that has ever crossed his mind into a three minute and forty-five second music video for a song called “F.U.W.” which stands for “Fucked Up World.”

The video has a lot of earnest black and white imagery going on. And when I say “a lot” I mean that there is a ton of wokeness involved. Like, a ton. Like, literally every group you can think of is represented in this video. He truly did not leave anyone behind here. It might actually be the wokest thing ever made in history.

(Also: note the use of “cash me outside, how bou dah” in the lyrics, a truly stunning and third-eye-opening use of the phrase—though I’m sure it won’t be long before that young lady will be coming to collect her royalties because, as Smollett so rightly points out, it really is a fucked up world.)

Here’s a list of concepts and things he addresses in the video, which he directed himself. Excuse me while I slowly wade into the ocean of wokeness before me.
