Killing an Arab

November 10, 2012


The song "Killing an Arab" by The Cure exemplifies the convergence of art and crime.  The song elicits outrage and anger, especially post 9-11 and the hatred directed towards those of Middle Eastern descent.  However, the story is not an expression of hatred (or a suggestion to kill an Arab), rather it is an artistic interpretation of Albert Camus' book The Stranger.
