M.I.A.'s Born Free Video

M.I.A. released a video for her song “Born Free” on her website, miauk.com (warning - it is very graphic, as they say in internet land NSFW), that depicts a military roundup and violent slaughter of the redheaded citizens of a war-torn desert nation. Yes, this does not have to do with television, but as a redhead I think it is interesting to share. I see the video as interesting way to get people to start thinking about genocide and wars throughout the world by using very America/European looking persons as the victims. I think this video is a great way to battle apathy that many have towards issues such as these. Especially as a redhead it makes me think about how it might be if I were to hunted down.

Check out the poll and see how other feel about the video.
