86 years ago today (1927) Gutzon Borglum began defacing the sacred BlackHills with Mt. Rushmore.
Everyone must remember that “Mt. Rushmore” (the Black Hills) does not legally belong to the federal government, and especially not to South Dakota. It was acknowledged as belonging to the sovereign Lakota Nation in the Sioux Treaty of 1868. The federal government STOLE the Hills from the Lakota, breaking the law they wrote with their own hands! The US is a repeat criminal but no one holds them accountable!
never fucking forget.
I really enjoyed painting this - so much RED!
I can’t wait to play as Shao Jun!

Young activists have taken to the streets and social media in protest. Hundreds have marched across America to demand justice for Michael Brown, a 19 year old unarmed black teen who was gunned down by a white police officer, and thousands have retweeted hashtags like #BringBackOurGirls, #DontShoot and #FreePalestine to draw attention to incidents of injustice. Although the public elects politicians, many times their outcries are not heard or addressed by their governors or congressmen but by artists, musicians, and authors.
There are many examples of contemporary black artists who are actively examining and critiquing our perception of the world through visual expression and revolutionary imagery. By referencing critical moments in history their work explores both the human condition and the process of human conditioning.
