Like a Prayer is iconic for most, but controversial among many. It features actor Leon Robinson as Saint Martin de Porres, who some perceived as a black version of Christ. The video's use of Catholic iconography includes a scene where Madonna develops stigmata and includes cross-burning imagery. However, it also garnered praise for its interpretation of discrimination, rape, and faith.
