The opening scene of the music video is Beyoncé on a horse in a derelict area where there is rubbish thrown

about. There then is a long shot showing the contrast in colours showing the dark black of the horse and the purity of Beyoncé in all white and white is represented as almost angelic and God-like showing superiority. It flips between

Beyoncé on a horse, Police riots running about and Beyoncé being on top of a car as if she is leading the riots. She shows the superiority of the girls by showing the Police men running around in a panic with The girls stood in

position ready for the police to come with the weapons and lions as protection fitting the theme of the song. As the

police arrive Beyoncé is central of the girls in lots of gold headwear showing she is the leader of the riot and then the music comes in which she is supported by the girls behind

her with the lyrics in the song and the stance.
