If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away---Henry David Thoreau

No More Racism: Revelation 21 Series

Finished the 7th painting in my Revelation 21 series: No More Racism. The burning cross and the noose symbolize the darkest and most blatant elements of racism in US history. At the same time racism is a systemic issue, not just a matter of personal prejudice nor existing only in its most overt manifestations. Today racism is more hidden, denied, and embedded in our social, economic, political, and judicial systems.
