The white court building spilling its Merlot
The United States of America can´t stop making wars and celebrate the death/capture of one person at the cost of thousands of innocent lives in the process. Merlot is a kind of grape that is used to make red wine, commonly used for celebration. Thus the analogy between spilling blood and wine.
It is also in reference to how Kendrick’s realism projected in his raps are unsettling to the white power structure in place so they are metaphorically troubled or spilling their Merlot.
The Compton Courthouse is also a white building.
