Dead Giveaway - a teachable moment?

How can a song be so problematic yet so catchy? Also *dead* at the link to the cover song at the end.

This story has been covered on various NPR stations over the last couple of days, not so much focused on the rescued women but the politics of presenting/ portraying the hero in the media has sparked discussions of race and class. So much to say about this. What are your thoughts on the coverage/ subsequent internet meme-ification?
