Obama Portrait Artist Also Painted Black Women Holding Severed White Heads

It turns out Kehinde Wiley, the artist former President Obama hand-picked to paint his Secret Garden-esque likeness, also has a penchant for painting disturbing images of black women holding severed white peoples’ heads. Here’s a fun example:
This particular painting is called “Judith and Holofernes,” which refers to a story from the apocryphal Book of Judith which inspired a whole bunch of art during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. While the original story did involve a woman whacking off a guy’s head, Wiley’s choice to use a black woman holding a dead white person’s severed head is clearly a deliberate one.

Having actually read the Book of Judith, the image does not resemble in the least - the plot line of the story of a woman who whilst within the enemy camp, made a decision which involved good old-fashioned retribution against the man she killed.

These paintings of black women holding white women's heads are beyond racist but violent racism. If this was Melania Trump who had an artist who painted white women holing up black people's heads, it would be an outrage and everyone would be calling for her to be put in prison.

It is interesting to note that most black people do not come out and shun this as racism. If you don't want others to show your race in this light then don't do it to others. This is the pinnacle of hypocrisy.

White people, black people and all people should try to bring one another together to build this country as strong.

There is racism in ALL races. However, I have been a subject of black racism for years. The nastiness I have experienced because of my skin color has been and is over the top. If you don't want to be treated in this manner, don't treat others this way. DON'T BE A HYPOCRITE!
