Racism by alahay Racism by alahay
Inspired by the famous expressive eggs and the society we live in...

EDIT: The bulbs may disagree and fight over superficial differences such as size and shape however they are all made the same on the inside and their function is equally to lighten our daily activities in general and to enlighten us about our similarities and differences in this deviation specifically.

EDIT 2: I thought this deviation merits a better framing after almost 500 favs and valuable comments. Thank you all!

I think this is simply amazing. I like how you were inspired by the eggs too. I always see the egg ones, but never lightbulbs! THe concept of this is amazing. Such a wonderful message. The face on the little lighbulb is amazing. You did a pretty good job with placing these too. But, also the little lighbulb looks like he isn't looking directly at us... It might of been better if he was staring directly at you. Overall this is pretty amazing. It's a nice use of lightbulbs. Keep up the great work! I love this so very much.

I really enjoy this picture. It shows the harsh reality of how people think, but just using light bulbs. Like, people, light bulbs are made of the same think on the inside, they work the same, but they have different outsides. Except, light bulbs don't have personality. Which you added, to show the humanity in each and every light bulb.

I think this picture shows how humans work, no matter where you go, you will almost see this, but maybe it's invincible like in thoughts.

I love that you have it in black and white. I don't know why, but having it black and white seems, to make it more powerful.

Nice job! I love it.

I notice that by using only white lightbulbs you're deliberately implying that only white people are racist.

You have difficulty going to an electronics shop, then order online.

You're intentionally avoiding the point, actually.

Why not just accept the fact? Because you don't want to. You're one of those folks who are quite unwilling to deal with your own bigotry.

Not avoiding it, actually, I didn't know what that meant. Not everyone wants to focus too much on colours, you know?
Or maybe you don't. Maybe. You can have your own opinion, and I'll leave you as you want it to be. It's not that I don't want to, it's just...I didn't know it. I just thought about the photo, and there were different lightbulbs. Not the colour though. Maybe I am, maybe I'm not. But have your own opinion, and I'll have mine.

Whites are inheritably racist, that's why we've been so successful, there is no shame in it, it's simple survival. But we have to carry on this charade. Like you actually view the lesser ones at an equal level, haha.

This is such a great photo with an even better message. I like how the focus is on the masses and not the one whom the hate is directed to. To me anyway, it conveys the problem is with society and not the individual.

you should have made it a different colored bulb maybe a black light bulb or something... just a emphasis on the racism.

very good concept none the less

But a black light has a different function. The point here is that while they are different is size and shape they serve the same purpose or equal on the inside!

Thanks a lot!

I enhanced the deviation btw. Hope you like it!
