M.I.A, Born Free - Not for the faint hearted

EXPLICIT: NSFW Call it what you will, artist M.I.A and director Romain-Gavras have pushed the boundaries on this ~ 9 min clip depicting genocide targeting red-heads. No more brutal than your average gore Hollywood flick but inviting some interesting reactions from press and community. YouTube pulled the video from US audiences. Not sure what is more disturbing - the content or the target. Senseless violence? What do you think?

I will add this - few of the commentators on this release have survived civil war like the artist has. And its a shame the music is almost secondary from an artist I have enjoyed in the past because of how she challenges musicality.
