Released on Monday, removed from YouTube the same day, reinstated with an "age restriction", then taken down once more (and possibly for good) on Tuesday. The life of MIA's new video seems destined to be a nasty, brutish and short one. Unlike the video itself, which at nine minutes of gruelling, dystopian terror, is nasty, brutish and quite long.


This is the perfect reflection of our age.

I am 100% serious -the music and visuals perfectly sum up the disregard for individual identity.

Kudos to the musicians, actors, producers and directors.

What do our ATS members think?

well the meaning is more dealing with the american psyche involved in discrimination, where picking off people is usually more prominent over taking down the criminals.

S&F, this is a great music video, the song is second. gotta like m.i.a

Powerful message.

Reminds me of the social overtones of the "Stress" video from the group "Justice".

Wackenhut anyone! What is wrong with redheaded stepchildren?

At least somebody gets it! Just remember in the real world the "redheads" shoot back. Excellent find OP appreciate this very much.

To be fair OP this video needs a disclaimer - it would be prudent. I don't want to discourage any but it is pretty harsh and would not be appropriate for younger viewers

That was f***ing disturbing, but worth the view.

Wow.

I thought it was a really good video. It made a good point.

I didn't, however, care for the commentary by the journalist.

I'll post what I posted on the comments section of the article:


So which mark is it supposedly overstepping?

You should also talk about the South Park episode. Which one is worse? Who gets to decide? As far as I'm aware, NO ONE in the public has yet seen the full unedited South Park episode.

Coincidentally they both deal with gingers... which is odd. They both seem to be using gingers as a metaphor for a 'targeted group'.

And the 'random' overweight sex-scene and old man smoking crack are not just 'random'... They are there to show the double standard that some people are treated violently, while others are ignored.

Obesity is a huge issue in America, so how can you say it is 'random'?

Drug use is huge in America, so how can you say it is 'random'?

Gingers, drug users, and obese people were ALL Born Free. This is emblematic of the principles that this country was founded upon. We are endowed by our 'creator'(whatever that may be, or not be) as equal and sovereign beings.

They made it a point to establish that our rights are not given to us by our government, but by something like 'god' that isn't tangible and therefore we are responsible for ourselves and no one should interfere with our 'Word' because our 'Word', as sovereign people, is LAW.

This video illustrates that apparently, someone arbitrary is out there is making decisions as to who gets to live in prosperity - and who doesn't. Who gets to be free, and who doesn't.

You are missing the point, and not analyzing the film well at all.

This article has no purpose, and sets out no idea for what 'the mark' should even be...

Prob one of the wildest and disturbing ones I've seen lol and after watching some of Rammsteins videos I was shocked at this one.

“First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.”

- Martin Niemoeller -

Then they came for the Gingers.

I started to read Guardian around 2000 or so. Quality of commentaries dropped sharply after 9/11. Something bad happened there.

As for the video: I have few (technical) objections but for many people this is reality. Something similar should be aired every other hour at every TV station at West to remind us for what we are responsible, and what we should fight against.
