"Artist" Obama chose likes to paint black woman decapitating white women

What the goddam fuck?!?

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/02/artist-who-painted-obamas-official-portrait-known-for-painting-blacks-beheading-whites/

Can you imagine for a second if George W. Bush, or any other former president, decided on a painter who was famous for depicting white people killing black people to paint his official portrait? It’s hard to imagine, right? Yea, that’s because it’s disgusting and backward.

has his portrait done by this artist:






Someone please explain how one is racist and the other isn't.

25. I don't care about the motivation for the making of that portrait

That isn't that isn't the point of my post, its about the reaction to it or more to the point the painter because you damn well know if the races were reversed the reaction would be loud.

26. Louder than the reaction to this one? I've read little else here for the last three days.

"This artist sucks! People are outraged! Everyone is pissed! Check out the media!"
"If the races were reversed, people would be outraged! Pissed! You'd read nothing else in the media!"

At least those who you speculate would be annoyed are not using Fox News as a substitute for forming their own opinions.

18. I know exactly who i was replying to

I am just wondering where the outcry from the left has gone over this, knowing full well if the proverbial shoe was on the other foot you'd be upset and before you say "no i wouldn't" yes yes you would be outraged

19. Same problem: I said WHAT you were replying to.

 



This "you" to whom you refer is me?

Well, me, I'd start by learning what I was talking about before forming, let alone expressing, an opinion.

I had never heard of the artist before, any more than anyone else getting all outraged here or elsewhere had.

So I'd start by reading up on him. Like here.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/arts-and-entertainment/wp/2018/02/12/who-is-kehinde-wiley-the-artist-behind-president-obamas-official-portrait/?utm_term=.d36caedd141e

Then I might investigate the severed-head paintings in classical art that I'm familiar with, that this artist seems to be evoking, e.g. by one of my faves, Caravaggio: David holding the head of Goliath (pause and reflect a moment there). And see whether there might be an artistic lineage.

https://artisticreveiw.wordpress.com/tag/caravaggio/

?w=300&h=232

I have a lot of work to do just now, but I'll get back to you if and when I feel I have an informed opinion. Feel free to do some preparation for discussion in the meantime.

Meanwhile, I do have an opinion on the portraite of Michelle Obama. It's gawdawful as portraiture.


Edit: Try this:

My suspicions about the classical art connection were, of course, correct.

21. Well we agree on one thing, it was godawful

In the past there are portraits of people holding heads but thats way in the past and generally are of the same race but in this day and age? if you can't see the artist trying to make some racial point then I can't help you.

16. There have been paintings of women holding severed heads for centuries.

Some of the Renaissance-era paintings are now in museums and mansions, and the purchase price for one of them would be 20 times what you'll make in your entire life. But of course, it's white women, holding white mens' heads, so it's nothing that's going to disturb you right-wingers.

Torture, beheadings, election tampering: the Ds really do like a lot of things!
