While I'm not a big Eminem fan, this track kicks ass. The video? Even better. It's a must see.

WHITE AMERICA DIRTY VERSION


GNN EXCLUSIVE

Uncensored Version

In a move that is sure to inspire some to question whether we have finally lost our edge and gone corporate, GNN is proud to release our collaboration with Interscope recording artist, Eminem.

Inked in mid-April, the deal between Interscope and Guerrilla News Network to produce a Flash-driven animated video for Eminem's ultra-controversial track, White America, was kept an industry secret. In order to fuse GNN's underground political culture with Eminem's profane anti-American rant, we pitched a concept that would "place the viewer in the body of Eminem as he moves through the media-drenched environment that is the subject for his critique of American society." In this way, we were actively seeking to divert the emphasis from the cult celebrity of Eminem and have the video be a platform for a broader and hyper-visual critique of America itself.

While the process of creating White America was long and meticulous, once we had finished the basic design for the first couple of verses, Interscope decided that they wanted it to be much more than a viral internet product. This meant increased scrutiny by their lawyers and a series of revisions to the final cut. But no level of corporate safeguarding could prepare us for the reception that CNN gave the video just days after its launch on Rolling Stone.com, when a parent of one of the Columbine shooting victims was brought on to critique the work. This coverage, combined with the perception of the video as "anti-patriotic" was enough to delay the video's television debut indefinitely. But by that time, Eminem was in the middle of his U.S. tour, opening the show with this track and our video on the large stage video screens.

The interpretive artwork for the four main verses of White America was created by Anson Vogt of Phong.com and his team: Shawn Schmidt and Dan Clegg. The chorus segments were done by Black Mustache's Haik Hoisington.

What exactly is he trying to say with this song? Is he standing up for minorities?

The main problem with white people is the same as the problems most have with people like you....

your selfish,self-rightous{for no real reason},ignorant,borderline racist,live by stereotypes,ect ect ect

basicly ivan...your a scum bag and YOU ARE NOT WHAT A PATRIOT SHOULD ACT LIKE!!

Study some real americans like Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson and see what they say about being a real american...everything they say goes AGAINST everything you think you stand for!

this has nothing to do with race, color or creed.
White America = Corperate America.
Basically the government is not holding up the rights in the constitution, this came out because of the # tipper gore was saying about his lyrical content, instead of worrying about more important things in the country.


Elite.. that statement is why there still is racial problems, get over it
