Black people on Barack Obama

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

This video (subtitled in French, watch it !) is made up of pictures and opinions of people from the Black community about their hopes about Barack Obama. The pictures were taken during a religious service. They refer to Martin Luther King as Doctor King.

United Colors ?

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

This is a great song by Santogold (an American songwriter, producer and singer who studied Music and African-American studies)  yet I have to admit that the video is uncanny, strange. The use of colours is extremely clever, the director decided to play on the traditionnal colour codes but it exposes the violence of our society.

I loved the song but the end of the video is rather disturbing and upsetting.
