Race in America

As President Obama leaves office for good in 2017, we see more hate crimes, racial profiling, police as targets, and unemployment hitting blacks harder than other races since the 2007 recession started. We’ve come a long way, but most everyone agrees we still have a long way to go.

Racism was unfortunately alive in Nashville back in 2001. Dating a Mexican revealed prejudice, literally in my own back yard. I learned that “Picking the right white is not as easy as it sounds" (as noted in this collage) when the best candidate is black, brown, or another color.

The Right White (Fear Less)
Originally this collage was about how magazines use subliminal messages to sell stuff. This final version looks at race, lust, seduction, secrets, and also strong families.
