It shows me what you think about Christianity and all Christians ,
just like Red necks share so called recent videos of the already dead Osama Bin Laden smoking a CIGAR, with a diamond ring and sipping Corvoisier,
as proof that al Muslims are terrorists
I'm not really sure how my asking for opinions on this video puts me on the
level of a Redneck but, I can tell you that I don't appreciate the attack,
subtle as it may be.
That aside: if you have an opinion about the action
in the video I would still like to hear it.
The white face and gloves are part of a mime act. He is not singing, but performing or acting to the song. His movements are coordinated to the emotions of the song.
It is not my cup of tea, but I hope none are offended by the white face...as far as I am aware, it is more of a pantomime effect than a statement on race relations.
what am i supposed to be looking for?
The continued conditioning of youth to believe in a white supremacist system of thought. It also show that the femenization of young Bro's is now excepted by our own ppl.
i did see all of that. But i was deep denial.
I'm not so much asking you to look for anything specifically... I'm asking about
the meaning of what you do see. If I were to ask you the same question
about the picture below, what would you say?
So, I'm asking for the same kind of analysis but on this video instead of a single
frame. When you take in the music, the movements, the costume, the setting,
etc.. what does all of that together say to you.. if anything. I don't mean to
imply that it has to say something. Different folks will see different things. I'm
interested in what you see.
Christianity has been the religion and politics of white supremacists. I did notice the young man was feminine, but the scary thing is that I did accept it. It was no different than noticing that he was black, thin or had a short haircut. Odd.
I see a husband (wedding ring) carrying his most precious things in life-wife, child, spiritual support- away from the darkness behind them into a better life. He holds them up as high as possible in the water. "Wade in the water" comes to mind.
