I think the author has missed the point of the photo and I am inclined to agree with the other respondents. The photo has clearly done it’s job if it makes her uncomfortable — that seems to be the point. White supremacy IS uncomfortable and those who benefit from it hardly see the damages it causes. Art has always been one of the best ways in which to point this out. This isn’t “racism,” it’s thought provoking. No one wants to be the the victim of true racism and white supremacy. Therefore, unless it is true with the underlying context is malicious, people need to stop throwing that word around.
