CMU reports that Prince is trying that ole’ chestnut get your video banned for maximum publicity. His subject matter will probably annoy a large proportion people and will ensure a great deal of publicity for his newest release.

The video to the new Prince song ‘Cinnamon Girl’ shows an Arab-American girl
blowing herself up at an airport. The suicide bomber is played by the Oscar-nominated Whale Rider actress Keisha Castle-Hughes who said she agreed to play the part because she is fed up with the anti-Arab sentiments she encounters in post 9-11 America. In the video it turns out the bomb detonation is just in the girl’s imagination…”

    I agree it’s probably founded in part by publicity (this IS the artist who changed his name to a squiggle for a while), but Prince has always expressed a strong desire for all people to accept each other regardless of what they look like or act like as long as they aren’t acting like haters.

    This seems like a reasonable stance for a half black-half white person who’s music combines funk, rap, pop and killer guitar solos that would make any heavy metal band proud.

    [SARCASM ALERT FOR THE HUMOR IMPAIRED:]

    True. A young Arab girl like this is SO mistreated here in America. It’s too bad she’s not somewhere where a young woman can breath free, such as back in the home countries like Syria or Iran.

    But she’s talking about arab’s in general, and “you’re better of here then you are there” just doesn’t cut it when “All men (are supposedly) created equal.”

    Alright then, what horrible damned oppression are Arabs being given in America? It better be something a little more significant than an occasional suspicious glance.
