Better title:

'I feel used'

This piece reminds me of the one quote "sometimes the best thing to do is to remove yourself so the destruction doesn't continue"  this is amazing..

Are you saying burnt victims are unliked by society 
Toriafashion's avatar
This is so beautiful. The way you've positioned it, it's as if the unburnt matches are ignoring the burnt one, and the burnt one is looking down, silent in it's sadness. Bravo.
I would love to use this picture in a class project I'm doing on some of the issues of racism today. Would you be okay if I used it? It is a beautiful piece that really says it all in one simple frame

It's funny because the black stick is burned and useless. :I

Can you smell the irony yet?
mangekyoteen's avatar
What is even more ironic is that all the match sticks will end up burnt and useless. So what you fail to see is this is really about age discrimination.
IronNarwhal's avatar
Wait, you didn't make this. Nevermind.
IronNarwhal's avatar
But the title says Racism. Naturally the viewer would look for a racial message (i.e. color). If you really want it to be about age discrimination now, you should change the title.
