I was supposed to have an art show this week, but the cafe where it was to be held close before it went up. In turn, I decided to post the flyers that I had already designed.

This WAS going to be the actual name of the show. I decided to all it this, largely because I'm just sick of term being used as a catch-all for black males. Its gotten to the point, which you may have seen in my feed earlier, that instead of just being me and being judged for what I can do, that I'm just a victim. I decided to just give it the name "Unarmed Black Male" in part to just fuck with everyone who saw the flyer and because I wanted to take it back.

If writing "fuck stereotypes" wasn't such a stereotype I'd write it! Keep on making awsome art Larry!

I wanna say I love the title but what inspired it is a shitty situation, and I hope by doing some of the things I do (trying to get people to love and respect each other via poetry, art, and writing) are helping even if only a little. I think you're an amazing artist, and you seem like a decent person. For whatever it's worth I think you rock. Amps to 11.
