    Look at the modern crime rate of black on white crime compared to white on black crime ... especially when it comes to violent crimes/rape etc. If anything gets swept under the carpet and flat out ignored by the MSM, it's THAT.

    We already have black history month and tons of Hollywood movies and awareness about slavery. Don't worry about that. It's not being swept under the carpet, far from it.

    The Michelle one looks like amateur hour. Obama looks like he's about to pull a Homer Simpson with the ivy. That Obama Hope one was iconic, this is just hilariously bad.

    As far as the artist goes it could you imagine it flipped. A White artist that paints white women decapitating black women doing a Trump Presidential portrait. That would break the internet. Par for the course with some of the company the Obama's keep.

    According to shercucks, it's ok. Because:

    1. History of slavery.

    2. It's art and art is supposed to be "edgy"

    They don't want equality ... they want privilege.

    So in your mind incarceration isn't white on black crime? Putting a black person in prison for a joint while the white guy gets a fine and 12 hours of community service is not a crime? Racism is a thing still, stick your head in the sand if you choose but it won't change the facts.

    I've got nothing wrong with that as long as we're all fine with Donald Trump getting his portrait done by an alt-right memelord who has depicted Melania beheading a black woman.

    By definition putting a person in prison isn't a crime unless it's due to falsifying evidence or other improper procedures.

    Things WR trump bots are rustled by:


    Paintings of Obama
    Black people on daytime tv

    For a bunch of people who cry about "identity politics" there's a never ending stream of threads crying about something relating to black people in some way.

    lmao. i dont like the portrait or style either, but im not going to pretend to be some art connoisseur like you. "any professional" lol. the arrogance.

    obama could never win on the race issue. whites like you think hes trying to enslave them. many blacks say he never did enough. in reality, that probably means he was right where he should be on the issue.

    Black person who goes to prison for a joint, often has a long-standing criminal history and is a member of a criminal gang.

    Drug crimes are quite simply an effective tool in getting some bad dudes off the streets. A bit too effective, in my tastes, but one cannot argue with the results that America has had in stamping out crime in the past 40 years, as a result of mass incarceration.

    Is it the ideal way to deal with the problem? Nope. But it's one way of dealing with the problem.

    I just think the Obama portrait itself looks like crap. Like, his chair is in the middle of a hedge or something?

    I'm just going to say what everyone is thinking. Black people may look a lot better in clothing and in natural light and in the White House, but white people will always look better in paintings. Hail #cuckvaggio.

    Creating controversy to gain some popularity...art was not in good taste...and shitty...you don't need to be of certain race to appreciate good art, you don't need to be caucasian to find it brash and distasteful...I'm a minority and I find that it's bland...but because it becomes controversial, who knows...some millionaire might just hang it in a wall...
