I have one heck of a rant today. I started writing this on Friday but had to stop and scrap it because I was starting to get out of hand. If you haven’t heard there is a painting in the Florida State Capitol Building being displayed titled by the artist “We are all Trayvon Martin.”
To quote the news article…
The mural shows a man who looks similar to George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch leader who shot and killed Martin in February 2012 and was later acquitted in the teen’s death, shooting a person wearing a hoodie. There’s a mirror in the mural where Martin’s face would be so visitors can see themselves as the teen.
I’m sorry did I miss something? Maybe I didn’t pay close enough attention to the trial to catch where George Zimmerman shot Trayvon in the back. Oh it didn’t happen? Well shit that’s weird!
Quick someone paint me a picture of a “White-Hispanic” man pinned to the ground on his back and getting his head pounded off the concrete. I already have a couple titles ready for it if you paint it for me, “We are George,” “Felonious Assault,” “Facts,” and my favorite “Shit That Really Happened.”
The thing that chaps my ass the most is it is being displayed in a government building. I can accept that this would be displayed in some hipster liberal art gallery that’s filled with dudes in scarves and skinny jeans drinking 15 dollar lattes discussing how far their French Liberal Arts degrees have taken them in life, but a public building has me befuddled,
If this is acceptable for a government building what possibly could be off-limits? Oh, that’s right the Ten Commandments. You heard right! A blatant attempt at misrepresenting facts is acceptable, but a religious symbol of ethics and morals must go. Is this real life?
Head over to the Absolute BS Facebook page and let me know what you think. If you have a better name for the painting I suggested lets hear it.
