Kansas City Art Vs Cultural Whiteness???

Our fault . . . For years we've asked the Kansas City creative class to think more about the world around them and as of late we've seen quite a bit of self-hate from these snowflakes who still can't seem to break out of their bubble. Take a peek: Piercing the Cultural Whiteness: Empathy and Survival Through the Lens of Silvia Abisaab

Is "Piercing Cultural Whiteness" new or even remotely unique ? I think not. European Culture has been pierced to the point of being perforated.The film Hidden Figures is a perfect example.Three Black Women are substituted for the one White Woman that actually assisted NASA by doing the more simple math that the engineers had long left behind. Like the magic Black rocket scientist portrayed by Morgan Freeman in October Sky, some endeavors (like space exploration) are just "too White".In a way, White Culture holds a mirror up to the rest of the world. When the non-white world doesn't like what it sees, such "art" is often the result.

Let's "pierce culture whiteness" by inventing a fake history. The Bolsheviks were experts at it. Next up - a black Mona Lisa.

One day far in the future there will be many books and essays written about the massive cultural insecurity felt by non-Westerners in the face of Western (not necessarily white) achievement. That's really the message of all this reactionary art--no identity of its own, except in relationship to the percieved oppression.

Exactly. That movie is so full of shit. What propaganda. Of course, there is an evil white racist keeping the black girls from doing long division and saving the Space Program. What fucking horse shit.

Willful blindness @8:50. Ancient Egyptians (Egypt is located in Africa) were building the pyramids when white folk in Europe were still cave dwellers. Progress is cyclical (look at China for an example, which has been a dominant power, then a poverty stricken basket case, and is now once again emerging as a dominant power), white folks don't have a monopoly on it, same as all other people.

I do know where Egypt is. But its peoples are not sub-saharan African, despite decades of hilarious effort to claim their genius. They were semitic. Ramses II had red hair.

Agreed, progress is cyclical. But we're talking about a whole field of 'art' that only exists in opposition to, critique of, or comment on Western Civ.

The obsession with race on the part of these people is highly defensive and completely telling. It's really about a Western Civilization that begins in Greece and is essentially continuous. Not necessarily 'white'. A problematic label anyway given the huge cultural diversity among Europeans.

They are not producing an original art. They are a parody of it. Pygmies uncomfotable with their perch on the giant.

I might add that this 'art' is wholly personal and narcissistic. It's selfies forever.
