People who think this is about racism are missing the point. The fact is the ‘white, western world have been exploiting the so-called ‘third world’ (they didn’t come up with that name themselves!) for centuries, but it’s easy to turn a blind eye when we have KFC and McDs on every corner and distraction via smartphones in our pockets every minute of every day. If Americans think that having a black president excuse them from the fact they exploit natural resources from poorer countries who don’t reap their own profits and are left with little for their own people, they are really deluded.
Be careful not to judge an entire group of people based on their leaders. I don’t know any Americans who like what is happening. We don’t like our leaders and loathe our lying media. We’re all becoming keenly aware that it may take a civil war to achieve shift. But like people of most countries, the populations voice is a whisper compared to the self centered agendas of their leaders. I fully recognize that people like us commenting here, are not the people who make the rules, laws, or deals. I don’t want to be a part of what is happening. But I don’t have the means to leave or to change it alone. All of us, especially those with children, want change. The question is really what are we willing to give up in the fight: our lives, orphaning our children; putting our children’s lives on the line threatened by our involvement? Are we willing to lose our homes, our jobs to take a stand? These are decisions our population is slowly, very slowly learning we may have to face. Just like other countries populations have had to chose. So, be a better human being and don’t get caught up in the rhetoric. Don’t judge all Americans by the horrible government we want gone. Judge western leaders, they are the ones who keep themselves I charge at all costs to do whatever they want to do regardless of the population.
wow, this couldn’t be more offensive.
I think you’re looking at it the wrong way…
There’s no wrong way to look at art. We need opposed opinions, like people thinking this art is insulting. Else, this idea loses its power.
holy shit. i agree. this is extremely racist.
racist? or realistic?
The truth hurts sometimes.
Offensive to whom? Surely this depicts greedy western society smothering the rest of the world. The other way around wouldn’t work and pitted as equal would be a lie. To me this says we have our priorities all wrong.
I think it could be way more offensive. How about swatsika and cooperate logos tattooed on the bald beast? Or how about the big gentlemen is eating the smaller gentlemen with a pitchfork? Bam, more offensive. You try?
1st world vs 3 world concept? If so, I honestly think it depicts it brilliantly.
Unbalanced… the world needs healing.
Heard a statistic that more people are dying from obesity then malnutrition (not sure if correct). Reminded me of this picture.
