    Can anyone remember the name of the John Travolta movie where society was basically black and the whites were discriminated against? One of the best racism movies I ever saw, the role reversal of black and white people really made it effective...

    Never mind, found it - "White Man`s Burden" - thoroughly recommended! Everyone should see it at least once.

    This video is more about supremacy than racism.

    This is actually the official video, there are 3 versions with 3 different deaths at the end, each of which has an amusing moral - Check them out on youtube :D

    I liked the music, unfortunately there people like that which I know, and use violence to express their oppinion about others...

    Another thing, rascists are bad. But I think there is still alot of accepted racisme. Not just talking about gays by religious people. But also fashion magazines and TV-shows which continiously try to show if you look a certain way you`re going to be good person, which is happy and is rich. And that`s kinda sad also...

    Goddamn it people...
    The song isn`t called "Long haired freaky people"
    It`s called what this video is called; "Don`t let the man get you down".
    This is the official video made by Fatboy Slim and it has 6 (read: six) different endings.

    *withdraws now that I have provided clarity*

    Racism goes both ways!!! Maybe they should have played the video of the L.A. riots when those black guys were beating the crap out of the white truck driver with a brick, who didn`t do a damn thing but be at the wrong place at the wrong time. That would have been equal air time!!!! "The Man" comes in all colors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This kind of racism, the superiority thing, the plain and obvious hatred, is disgusting. But let`s face it...
    "Everyone`s a little bit racist today.
    So everyone`s a little bit racist. Okay.
    Ethnic jokes might be uncouth but you laugh because they`re based on truth..."

    Sounds like you`re two seconds from going into a rant Michael Richards-style.

    Racist. :-|

    Bonus points to anyone who knew, before my little rant here, that "Long Haired Freaky People" (Actually called "Signs") was a song from the seventies by a band called The Five Man Electrical Band.

    Regardless, I liked the video. The way he got hit by the car was amusing.

    Here`s a sldeshow/youtube video to the original song.

    I thought that, too

    and why was the racist a white guy?

    How many points do I get AndelleRae? I came to post a comment to the effect of the real name of the song and the original artists. And that this is a *remix* by Fatboy Slim.

    I have no tolerance for racial intolerance.
