    This video presumably is about the genocide in Sri Lanka -- the conclusion of the civil war and the continuing oppression of ethnic Tamils -- and the lack of action from the UN and the international community ... the absence of checks and balances in SL, and the capacity of the Sinhalese majority to perpetrate genocide is pretty startling, and MIA is one of the few major voices who has spoken out on the issue.

    A cool but troubling video.

    It's shit being ginger. No doubt about it.

    Jokes aside. It's one of the better music vids I've seen for a while. It had a point, and there was no ridiculous botty shaking. Not sure why it was banned though.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    I was disturbed by the imagery. I think the message is excellent.

    Yes, and it is also startling that the UN neglects the fact the main dish of the Sinhalese people are fried Tamil balls and they serve that dish even in UN HQ.

    You sure know a lot. And you sure get the right information. And how couldn't you get the right information? You watch M.I.A videos. That's the least biased stories you'll ever hear.

    Interesting. i always become very intrigued when things get banned for anything related to graphic violence or sexuality. based on the knowledge I have I see parallels being drawn between gingerism in the UK and Tamil oppression burymecloser mentioned.

    i'm gonna poke and prod my ISTJ friend on this; mostly because I'm the only one who could probably get away with it the way that I do. he's part Sinhalese (mum and dad are both from UK), and while otherwise being a very level-headed guy he hates her and refuses to listen to her music...his reasoning being that she's "the daughter of a terrorist".
