M.I.A. Paper planes

This is deeply moving song. MIA “Maya” Mathangi Arulpragasam is interesting and multi-faceted. The meaning of this song is not simply about selling drugs like some think…It is a mocking those who make assumptions about illegal aliens being terrorists, drug dealers and the like. I got visas in my name….yeah I make em all day…In addition to that she mocks ” all i wanna do is bang, bang, bang and cha ching and take your money…and she points out the fact that “Everyones a winner were making our game, bonafide hustlers making our name.” Example of how we shouldn’t judge. Mocking those that assume that all one wants to do is bang, bang, bang and take your money! Made for a great song in our modern pop culture because it explains partially what is true not only for immigrants and minorities but even for government officials and big wigs…..a controversial moving song.
