    I think white people like black people who obey the law.

    I think white people are genunely happy for black people who are able to be legitimately successful, that's why they voted for Obama in the first place.

    Agreed with the caveat that I prefer people of any type who obey the law.

    Don't really have an opinion on the sperm cell on his temple, but Snopes' attempt to categorise it as "false" is pretty funny. They refer to it as a "faithfully-reproduced vein" (their punctuation) and then produce a close-up of Obama's temple - no vein in sight.

    Out of curiosity, is this Judith/Holofernes theme often rehashed in the modern era?

    Also, from a technical standpoint, is this flower background thing hard to achieve the way Wiley is doing it?

    I just read today an article by a very wise and eloquent Kurdish journalist in Sweden. She has written a lot about honor related violence among Kurdish people.

    Today, she wrote about how funny it's when blonde Swedish men writes her and informs her about how wrong she is and that socialism and feminism are widespread among Kurdish people.

    Where's the close-up? All I see on the Snopes link is the portrait.

    The background does show some repetition of the motifs , with slight changes to the edges of a particular motif.
    Also, like a lot of big name artists, Wiley does not do all of the paintings himself, he outsources some to no name workers. In Wiley's case, he has a studio in China cranking out work. Damien Hirst is infamous for having underlings do a lot of work that gets passed off as Hirst pieces. Having no name artists crank out work under a single painter's name has been going on for centuries.

    The wallpaper-like repetition is apparently part of his signature style.

    The prominence of the background was also deliberate.

    Apparently he also actively pursued the portrait job.

    I can't imagine any other race of person on earth, who when confronted with a blatant racist painting of a black woman swinging around the severed head of a woman of their own race would make excuses for the painter.

    I can't imagine even the most liberal black/Asian ever defending such blatant racism against their own.

    But liberal white people are so far gone, it's unreal. Pathological masochism.
