    White rule has been gone for a long time. It has to do with Michelle’s racism against white people and her intolerance for other peoples beliefs.

    It’s 2018 and time to get over it. Michelle has never even experienced racism or this bullshit passiveness you talk about. People like you are the problem.

    I might have been wrong about it being explicitly instructed in the O.T. I was thinking of the Curse of Ham. Centuries later, some Jews, Muslims and Christians, did come to explain black skin, as being evidence of the Curse of Ham.

    Why Africans embraced Christianity?
    Apart from Colonialism , because Africans are not as racially cognizant in matters of religion, as MENA and Europe were and are. Why do so many Blacks believe in Islam despite Islam being racist and Muslims being the biggest slave holders in Africa. Asians , while being racially cognizant, also admire Whites, so they accept Christianity. If Jesus was Bantu, Asians would be far less receptive to Christianity. Christianity's message is part of the appeal but so to is race, because even a popular message can not get much traction if the person delivering the message is dark skinned or looks Black. In most of Eurasia, dark skin is hated or looked down upon.

    @Pseudo Sane I think we need the painting in the your first post.

    The painting is not that bad, it's kinda of cool but not really. I'm not a fan of modern, contemporary arts anyway. And TS posting Caravaggio, oh boy that's was just cruel. I'm always stunned and depressed to remember we moved from artists like Caravaggio and Rembrandt to "artists" painting colorful strips on a canvas and calling it art.

    I do have a problem with Obama's artist choice. If the artists himself acknowledged that it's a racial thing, a "kill withey thing" then we have a big problem. Did they know and not cared? Or did they pick the guy just because he's black? Either way, an artist like that shouldn't be near the former POTUS and FLOTUS. But now he's eternalized with the Obamas.

    What else is going on in the country in terms of racism that they should be concerned about? Oh right...

    The painting is ugly. I don’t know much about modern art but I know I don’t like that.

    Racist? Don’t know about that. I’d say hiring a racist painter says less than appointing a racist attorney general. But I’d also say people can overlook character flaws and personal ideaology if they think another person will do a good job.

    so if Trump picked an artist that painted Nazi stuff, nobody would have a problem w/ that?

    I seriously doubt that would be the case

    Are you trying to claim an Attorney General should be held to a different standard than a painter?!

    From what I've gathered, the paintings aren't a kill whitey thing, but a reference to scripture.

    The beheaded "woman" isn't a woman at all but a Babylonian general that was decapitated by Judith.

    On second thought, no. This painting is clearly scarring many Americans and in this thread alone it’s done more mental damage than the highest ranking law enforcer ever could.
