Project 3 - Baraj Matthews - White Negro
What does White Negro represent?
White Negro represents the current climate we are living in, in terms of race relations. Current political leaders, Donald Trump, has authorised so much dialogue that wouldn't have been conceivable in Barak Obama's day. People were thinking it, of course they were but Trump has authorised this shit to go down. White Negro is a platform to counteract the language that is being used. White Negro doesn't mean what people will initially think of when they see it. It's about bringing the people together, not pushing them apart, not separatism. But you put those two words together and people's initial reaction is one that it's negative. Why would you initially think the name White Negro was negative? The word negro we've been using forever? I've never had a problem with the word negro. We can't say anything anymore which I think is bullshit. Are we going to be walking around with taped mouths? White Negro is about challenging people to think and face up.
Me and you.
