"This is not a post-racial world.

Pretending that these problems are not still a very real part of people's lives is not helpful; it doesn't solve the problem, it just makes people feel better about themselves when there isn't anything to feel especially good about yet. It's sort of like changing your twitter icon to green for the Iranian election protests, or changing your Facebook profile pic to a cartoon character to prevent child abuse. "Slacktivism" is the term. Race may not matter to you personally, but I imagine you aren't blind to it either. There is nothing gained by pretending race doesn't matter to other people except complacence."

Materials and Methods
Stock of girl courtesy of !Katanaz-Stock
GIMP 2.0 for all manipulations. Girl was desaturated in two different ways using monochromatic channel mixing. Ancient warmth action available on my website was applied to the greyscaled pieces.

Additional Comments
One of the most intriguing quotes I have come by so far during my time on dA. On a side note, why is racism generally portrayed as black and white...where's the yellow :lol:

I dig the image but the message is that of the agenda. the real people in power use race to divide us and to control us. racism in America is nothing more than a tool the rich use to manipulate.
