    Default M.I.A.'s Banned Video

    M.I.A. Born Free

    It's amazing to me that it's okay for people to actually be treated like this and worse, but for an artist to make a statement about it is unacceptable???

    The music in the very beginning reminds me of the music in Irreversible. Sends chills up my spine just thinking about it.

    The rest of the song is pretty annoying.

    It very well may be, I actually didn't listen as I was wrapped up in the visual and trying to figure out why exactly it was banned.

    A man was smoking pot and there are naked people having sex (go figure). That may have something to do with it.

    Idk, let me look into it, you very well may be right if that's the case. I was just reading how it was "too brutal and disturbing"

    Let me start off saying that I love M.I.A., I love noisy music and I love a good conspiracy. I thought the video was great. I see it as mocking the absurdity of racial profiling individuals as terrorists and as "the problem" by our society, primarily our government. Setting up these red haired, fair skinned dudes seems utter ridiculous to me (and to many other people I'm sure) but why is that? Is it because we find fire crotches comical or is it because we could never imagine "the white man" being gathered up like herds of cattle ready to be shipped to the slaughterhouse? I think the video presented a realistic perspective as to what it's really like when a government commits such acts defiling a certain race(look).

    I enjoyed the pot head guy chillin' while chaos runs a muck right outside his doorstep, the fugly couple getting it on and getting interrupted by pigs and the baby faced ginger who was caught in the building being raided. I also can't deny I love a little gore and watching those red heads get blown up to pieces was partially scary and enjoyable, but not in the sense where I like to see human agony and would like to partake in dismemberment, but because i think it drove the point home. As ridiculous as racial profiling is, the fact of the matter is that it will always end in destruction. You can take that literally or metaphorically.
