On What It Feels Like to be Kanye West is What It Feels Like to be American

You're missing the point spectacularly.

The "little girl" is entirely alone, wandering the streets. She's shot in B&W, whereas the Kanye/Rhianna/Cudi parts are hyper-real color. It's to show that among the bombast of mom/dad drama, the kid is lost in the shuffle.
