Now Playing Tracks

To talk about painting is not only difficult but perhaps pointless, too. You can only express in words what words are capable of expressing, what language can communicate. Painting has nothing to do with that. That includes the typical question: “What were you thinking of?” You can’t think of anything: painting is another form of thinking. What interests me in general, and this also applies to painting, are things I don’t understand. It’s like that with every picture: I don’t like the ones I understand.

I recently followed you and noticed that you seem Christian. You also seem to be conscious and aware of plights Black folk face. Why do you continue to adopt a religious structure that was forced upon your ancestors in order to make them better slaves?

youngblackandvegan:

because i am a Christian, which means my relationship is with my God and not the white men that perverted my religion to rape murder and kill black people.

it sounds like you have a very rudimentary understanding of  Christianity if you somehow think that my religion and my faith is in conflict with my life’s dedication to black uplift. It would be ridiculous to judge a religion by the evils of man when the whole point of religion is to focus on God and spirituality.

I am a Christian because I have a relationship with my God. It was not forced on me, I chose to be a Christian. I also choose to actually learn about my religion, so I both know that

  1. Christianity was in Africa before white people “brought” it there
  2. Christianity may have been a tool white people used to keep us down but it has also been a way for black people to lift ourselves up
