Hannah Black Leftist Painter Calls For Emmett Till Painting To Be destroyed

Forums - Politics Discussion - Hannah Black Leftist Painter Calls For Emmett Till Painting To Be destroyed

Creator of Emmett Till 'Open Casket' at Whitney Responds to Backlash - NBC News 

I don't understand how the media (Corpotate media and the money that backs them) are going along with this. I hope this doesn't happen and I'm sure it won't but the suggestion itself is scary, this same thing has happened throughout the history and when that happens the civilization falls not long after, most recently ISIL have taken to destroying art and cultural monuments. 

Their Open Letter said in part:

“The painting should not be acceptable to anyone who cares or pretends to care about Black people because it is not acceptable for a white person to transmute Black suffering into profit and fun.

“The subject matter is not Schutz’s; white free speech and white creative freedom have been founded on the constraint of others, and are not natural rights. The painting must go.”

To me looks like someone shit and vomited all over a canvas but should not be allowed to be destroyed. That's straight out of history of Pleasant Ville movie



So...You read an article about someone dealing with backlash over being upset that a white artist made a painting based on a tragic photo from the CRM, and you're takeaway isn't that people are standing up for the art and what the movement meant to all of Americans, but that this one person represents the downfall of society?

How long does it take to dry your clothes in that spin cycle?



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

That protestor is just as racist and the ones to once brought harm to "his" people.



Fuck no. Do not destroy it. Just because the artist wasn't the race of the person she depicted doesn't mean she shouldn't have the right to create art of those of a different color. That in itself is segregation and racism. Regardless of your color, people feel pain all the same way. Just because she wasn't black doesn't mean she can't feel persecution, discrimination, etc. Also the whole 'cultural appropriation' (thats where you dont like people acknowledging/celebrating your culture, right?) movement is complete garbage. If you don't want people to take part in your culture then fucking do the same you hypocrite. Don't use American made internet, eat Asian inspired food, or use clothing that originated from a culture that wasn't your own e.e And to those people, you don't need to be black to understand pain/suffering. That comes in a variety of different colors and forms. It's called being a decent fucking person.

"These people are starting to rip apart society and the free world"

Yes, it's so close. Another 99.9% of the world giving a fuck about this and society will be in trouble. You win today's "Ridiculous Hyperbole" award.



"culminating in a critical question: Do white artists have the right to depict Black pain?"

...uh...is this an actual question?

It's a bullshit question.  I can never fully understand anyone or any group of people's plight.  But an attempt to empathize and bring awareness is a sign of solidarity and should be appreciated.  Hell, even the person doing the protesting doesn't truly understand what happened 62 years ago.  He should just screw himself because that's all he's good for.



Fairly decent video that goes into more dept than the articles I can find.
