Blu in Los Angeles

Here is another impressive large scale mural from renowned artist Blu, this time creating some controversy by creating this piece on the exterior of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles within 24 hours. Featuring $1 bills, this impressive piece of work aims a statement at the political affairs of the United States. Derived from Blu’s core concept of work and ethics, this is a preview of the “Art in the Streets” that will open in April next year at the MOCA.

What if The Tea Party was Black?

Imagine that hundreds of black protesters descended on DC armed with AK-47s. Would they be defended as patriotic Americans?

Let’s play a game, shall we? The name of the game is called “Imagine.” The way it’s played is simple: we’ll envision recent happenings in the
news, but then change them up a bit. Instead of envisioning white
people as the main actors in the scenes we’ll conjure - the ones who
are driving the action - we’ll envision black folks or other people of
color instead. The object of the game is to imagine the public reaction
to the events or incidents, if the main actors were of color, rather
than white. Whoever gains the most insight into the workings of race in
America, at the end of the game, wins.
So let’s begin.
Imagine that hundreds of black protesters were to descend upon Washington DC and Northern Virginia, just a few miles from the Capitol and White
House, armed with AK-47s, assorted handguns, and ammunition. And
imagine that some of these protesters —the black protesters — spoke of
the need for political revolution, and possibly even armed conflict in
the event that laws they didn’t like were enforced by the government?
Would these protesters — these black protesters with guns — be seen as
brave defenders of the Second Amendment, or would they be viewed by
most whites as a danger to the republic? What if they were
Arab-Americans? Because, after all, that’s what happened recently when
white gun enthusiasts descended upon the nation’s capital, arms in
hand, and verbally announced their readiness to make war on the
country’s political leaders if the need arose.
Imagine that white members of Congress, while walking to work, were surrounded by thousands of angry black people, one of whom proceeded to spit on
one of those congressmen for not voting the way the black demonstrators
desired. Would the protesters be seen as merely patriotic Americans
voicing their opinions, or as an angry, potentially violent, and even
insurrectionary mob? After all, this is what white Tea Party protesters
did recently in Washington.
Imagine that a rap artist were to say, in reference to a white president: “He’s a piece of shit and I told him to suck on my machine gun.” Because
that’s what rocker Ted Nugent said recently about President Obama.
Imagine that a prominent mainstream black political commentator had long employed an overt bigot as Executive Director of his organization, and
that this bigot regularly participated in black separatist conferences,
and once assaulted a white person while calling them by a racial slur.
When that prominent black commentator and his sister — who also works
for the organization — defended the bigot as a good guy who was
misunderstood and “going through a tough time in his life” would anyone
accept their excuse-making? Would that commentator still have a place
on a mainstream network? Because that’s what happened in the real
world, when Pat Buchanan employed as Executive Director of his group,
America’s Cause, a blatant racist who did all these things, or at least
their white equivalents: attending white separatist conferences and
attacking a black woman while calling her the n-word.
Imagine that a black radio host were to suggest that the only way to get promoted in the administration of a white president is by “hating black
people,” or that a prominent white person had only endorsed a white
presidential candidate as an act of racial bonding, or blamed a white
president for a fight on a school bus in which a black kid was jumped
by two white kids, or said that he wouldn’t want to kill all
conservatives, but rather, would like to leave just enough—“living
fossils” as he called them—“so we will never forget what these people
stood for.” After all, these are things that Rush Limbaugh has said,
about Barack Obama’s administration, Colin Powell’s endorsement of
Barack Obama, a fight on a school bus in Belleville, Illinois in which
two black kids beat up a white kid, and about liberals, generally.
Imagine that a black pastor, formerly a member of the U.S. military, were to declare, as part of his opposition to a white president’s policies,
that he was ready to “suit up, get my gun, go to Washington, and do
what they trained me to do.” This is, after all, what Pastor Stan Craig
said recently at a Tea Party rally in Greenville, South Carolina.
Imagine a black radio talk show host gleefully predicting a revolution by people of color if the government continues to be dominated by the rich
white men who have been “destroying” the country, or if said radio
personality were to call Christians or Jews non-humans, or say that
when it came to conservatives, the best solution would be to “hang ‘em
high.” And what would happen to any congressional representative who
praised that commentator for “speaking common sense” and likened his
hate talk to “American values?” After all, those are among the things
said by radio host and best-selling author Michael Savage, predicting
white revolution in the face of multiculturalism, or said by Savage
about Muslims and liberals, respectively. And it was Congressman
Culbertson, from Texas, who praised Savage in that way, despite his
hateful rhetoric.
Imagine a black political commentator suggesting that the only thing the guy who flew his plane into the Austin, Texas IRS building did wrong was
not blowing up Fox News instead. This is, after all, what Anne Coulter
said about Tim McVeigh, when she noted that his only mistake was not
blowing up the New York Times.
Imagine that a popular black liberal website posted comments about the daughter of a white president, calling her “typical redneck trash,” or a “whore”
whose mother entertains her by “making monkey sounds.” After all that’s
comparable to what conservatives posted about Malia Obama on last year, when they referred to her as “ghetto trash.”
Imagine that black protesters at a large political rally were walking around with signs calling for the lynching of their congressional enemies.
Because that’s what white conservatives did last year, in reference to
Democratic party leaders in Congress.
In other words, imagine that even one-third of the anger and vitriol currently being hurled at President Obama, by folks who are almost
exclusively white, were being aimed, instead, at a white president, by
people of color. How many whites viewing the anger, the hatred, the
contempt for that white president would then wax eloquent about free
speech, and the glories of democracy? And how many would be calling for
further crackdowns on thuggish behavior, and investigations into the
radical agendas of those same people of color?
To ask any of these questions is to answer them. Protest is only seen as fundamentally American when those who have long had the luxury of
seeing themselves as prototypically American engage in it. When the
dangerous and dark “other” does so, however, it isn’t viewed as normal
or natural, let alone patriotic. Which is why Rush Limbaugh could say,
this past week, that the Tea Parties are the first time since the Civil
War that ordinary, common Americans stood up for their rights: a
statement that erases the normalcy and “American-ness” of blacks in the
civil rights struggle, not to mention women in the fight for suffrage
and equality, working people in the fight for better working
conditions, and LGBT folks as they struggle to be treated as full and
equal human beings.
And this, my friends, is what white privilege is all about. The ability to threaten others, to engage in violent and incendiary rhetoric without
consequence, to be viewed as patriotic and normal no matter what you
do, and never to be feared and despised as people of color would be, if
they tried to get away with half the shit we do, on a daily basis.
