with a nose to the ground i found my sound: mia's 'born free'
i heard people talk at length about this nine minute video long before I ever saw it, and by the time i did a search on youtube it had been pulled due to its "inappropriate" contents. i don't believe this is a music video about hatred for red-haired people. i believe that mia has made an interesting and controversial statement about the reality of racial discrimination, both in our past and present. by replacing jews or african americans with red heads, it just highlights how very ridiculous this discrimination ever was! yes, it's shocking, but if you replace those red-headed fellows in the clip with any racial minority, it's still a reflection on reality. it's making people think and talk, and that can't be a bad thing.
watch it for yourself and let us know what you think.
