BLXPLTN has never been afraid to be as poignant as they are confrontational with their observations on the truth and he state of the nation. NO ENGLISH, their latest video and the first single off their upcoming sophomore release Children of the Foreign, is a bold statement on how the so called ‘tired and huddled masses’ that America claimed they wanted are now literal fodder at the hands of our political machine. A system of rule that was set up to protect Americans of all colors and creeds is doing all that it can to keep us at odds with one another as it tears us apart us a nation. BLXPLTN displays their feelings on the matter via a video dominated by two parallel states : a rousing and emotional performance versus ICE agents chasing members of the band through the woods. If this is a taste of what’s to come with Children of the Foreign, I’m ready for a major dose of their reality.
