M.I.A. aka Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam, dropped her second single called BORDERS from her anticipated new album MatahDatah, release date TBA. Not only did she dropped the song but also the video which is very impressive, filled with war crisis and political points which we have all witnessed via the Media News outlets worldwide. MIA is no newbie when it comes to expressing world crisis through her music. This type of music can threaten the powers of government and country leaders, but MIA holds the real power by revealing the truths through word and sound. For the people will listen.
Sounds familiar? It should because Bob Marley, Bob Dylan and many other musicians revealed political truths and agendas through their music which people listened to. This type of power became a threat . How can 1 person change or affect the world? Is it possible? Indeed it is.
In current news and the political airwaves have all discussed the Syria refugees fleeing their countries for a better and safer place for their families. They are running, hiding, getting onto small boats for a long, treacherous journey across seas and wide oceans, sacrificing their own lives for the lives of their children. And as we have seen it can reverse, where children are sacrificing their lives to help their parents and other siblings.
We’ve witnessed in 2015 alone, the massive amounts of terrorists bombings around the world especially in Paris ( twice this year), Nigeria, Turkey, Iraq, Yemen, Cameroon, Philippines, Syria, etc … The numbers are STAGGERING.
The regards for life itself has dissipated enormously. There is no value for life.
M.I.A.’s song reveals the parallel of escaping ones distressed war zone country and taking that journey to come to a “safer” country to then be treated as terrorists or less than human or to be refused by that country and be sent back to your war torn country. Politicians pointing fingers of letting in terrorists to building walls around our borders to blaming ALL MUSLIMS for the attacks and bombings. The ugliness and lack of colour forms the template of what is to come.
Through the video, MIA repeats the question ” What’s Up With That? ”
BORDERS – WHATS UP WITH THAT?
POLITICS – WHATS UP WITH THAT?
POLICE SHOTS – WHATS UP WITH THAT?
IDENTITIES – WHATS UP WITH THAT?
YOUR PRIVILEGES – WHATS UP WITH THAT?
YOUR VALUES – WHATS UP WITH THAT?
then she warns that she will on top of all these issues .. she wont stop
AM GONNA KEEP UP ON ALL THAT !
Borders, walls, fences, wires, will not keep you safe, will not protect, and will not keep people from trying to come through to other countries. As history have shown, walls always come down or crash down. They never live for long. Everything is temporary. What remains is still the human connection needed to create a more better union.
Government officials need to stop creating wars for the bottomline – THEIR POCKETS. The more casualties, the more money they make. We as a people can and will stop this.
