Pink gets political in the video for her new single, “What About Us.”
The clip begins with overlapping sounds including political speeches, protestors chanting and a man saying, “We are going to reject hate! We are going to reject racism!”

As Pink sings, dancers perform an interpretive, emotional routine, which seems to represent oppression in our society. It ends with Pink uniting with the dancers for a number in the middle of the desert.
Even before the video was released, it seemed…
