Christopher Rothko
"If you’re not experiencing a painting, if you’re just looking … on a
formal level or (saying), ‘This is what Rothko’s talking about,’ you
haven’t really had a meaningful interaction with the painting"

    When I think back on the Panther movement and what I see as its real message to white America, I’m reminded of the scene in Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, where the chaplain addresses God and merely requests to be spared the usual abuses….

    Chaplain, Congregation: [singing]
    Oh, Lord, please don’t burn us,
    Don’t grill or toast your flock.
    Don’t put us on the barbecue,
    Or simmer us in stock.
    Don’t braise or bake or boil us,
    Or stir-fry us in a wok.
    Oh please don’t lightly poach us,
    Or baste us with hot fat,
    Don’t fricassee or roast us,
    Or boil us in a vat,
    And please don’t stick thy servants Lord,
    In a Rotissomat…

    The Panthers were just saying… let us live like human beings, we’ve had enough abuse.

    Thanks for the article, the art was courageous.
