Tomorrow, on October 22, the Nat’l Day of Action Against Police Brutality, people across the nation will be engaged in action to Stop Police Brutality, Repression, Criminialization and the Genocide of Black people.
Join us at Troy Davis/Woodruff Park, in downtown Atlanta @ 4PM
Fuck people who think it’s a compliment to tell me I’m “different” than other Black people because I “don’t conform to stereotypes.” Fuck you if you think it’s okay to throw my people under the bus to compliment me. You only “respect” me because you think I’m not like other Black people but I am. I absolutely am. They are me and I am them so either you love us all or none of us. And fuck you.
Blackness at its core—
Cannot be contained,
Blackness will always be—
So @juxtapozmag how do @livingwallsatl present “ATLANTA” ? Did you guys do your research? Did you guys ask the PEOPLE? Do the art and artists represent the COMMUNITIES these murals are placed in? Nothing against @livingwallsatl but if you want to show BALANCE why not just do a feature on “Forward Warriors” or any of the real ATL street artists who have been putting in major work to represent Atlanta (across the world) all these years? Just ask the people in these communities if the art represents the faces and culture of Atlanta. I know it’s politics and power.. I know it’s all about who you know and who you do business with.. And im not a street artist but from the outside looking in ..most of the murals do NOT reflect the people of ATL.. The culture of ATL.. Or the pride of ATL… This is only my opinion but when you are in the position to share the truth then you have to be 100… Let’s be honest we all know the street artists in ATL do deserve the shine.. Magazines like @juxtapozmag help build careers.. Help artists feed their families … This article do not reflect ATL art culture… Share your opinion to @juxtapozmag power to the people.. Not the ones with all the Atlanta city hall and city grant connects…#ATLANTA (at City of Ink)
