    Hip Hop legend KRS One has found himself embroiled in more controversy behind his “underground viewpoint” and outspoken nature. This latest incident involves the video for the track “Real Terrorism.” The rather graphic video for the politically charged song (featuring new artist Greenie) has become one of the few music videos to be banned from YouTube.
    Evidently, its explicit wartime imagery was declared “too shocking” for viewers.

    There’s no coincidence that this ban occurred during a very vulnerable time for many Americans. The 10-year anniversary of the attacks on September 11th mark a period of mourning and reflection for many in the US where criticism of American policies may even be considered sign of disrespect.

    Regardless, rapper Greenie explains:

    “The song tells the TRUTH about the United States, its massacres, and the terrorist acts our government has committed around the world.
    The photos used in the video are just actual historic records and are important educational materials for all to see.
    I am shocked that YouTube allows silliness, sex, and pop rap –but not this important material.”

    “Real Terrorism”, the video YouTube deemed unfit for their audience, can still be viewed by way of Vimeo.

    I bet Youtube did ban that, Youtube attacks lesser videos. They're favorite thing now is to stall view counts so that although people are continuing to watch your videos, your views stay the same or don't reflect the true views exactly; this keeps your video from becoming more popular. Many people are going through this right now.

    The video: The words of the song were all true, and have been proven to be true, but of course that doesn't mean a thing in America. The opposite is what's proclaimed and believed, the opposite of the proven truth. So what does that tell you about the country you live in?

    *One funny lie/front just came to mind: When people get on TV and refer to something horrible as Un-American when in reality what they claim to be Un-American is exactly what America has done/has not done 100% of the time it has existed! The opposite, again.

    The images were fitting. An overwhelming majority of Americans who agree with wars and support wars can't even look at images like that. "It's too graphic." They then attack the person presenting the images. Looney Tune country.

    That sounds like a good idea. Maybe we could do that writings and other videos also (MAAFA 21, for example).
