Buffalos? @ 08:33 pm

so_cruel:
I'm currently feelin: confused confused

Ok, been a U2 fan for a long, long time.

However, I never really paid much attention to details or symbolism. I asked my U2 obsessed brother, but he wouldn't explain it to me.

So please, someone explain the buffalos to lost little me. :)

I might be toally wrong on this, but the cover of the 'One' single is the first place I remember noticing the buffalo. It's a photo by by a photographer named David (I have to look up his last name) Wojnarowicz, who I believe has since died, but at the time the single was released had been diagnosed as HIV positive. He was an advocate for gay rights and things, and the image of the buffalo being herded off the cliff (evidently a method the Native Americans used in buffalo hunting) represents his struggle and that of others with HIV and Aids against outside forces he can’t control.

I think that’s right and I hope it makes sense. If not... someone can set me right.

I honestly cannot remember for the life of me!

Feel free to steal it, and don't worry about "credit" or whatever. I don't do that bs. ;)
