You forget the point is to show the UK as being racist along the lines of 75% of angery penguins threads.
Except its paonted by a Black S African and happens tro be an anti racist painting, but truth never stopped angery penguin.
I didn't forget anything, I just focus on the topic, not the user posting it.

You mean Penguin or the customer?

So the painting was by a black man, originates from South Africa.

"South Africans are used to having open talks around race and racism, this translates into our artwork. We are used to seeing protest work," she said.


"This piece does not mean that black people should be toasted, instead it can be interpreted as black people have been toasted by racism and oppression."

So Penguin fails because:
1. Its from S Africa. So doesnt fit with everyone else but the Chinese are racist, especially the whiteys in Western Europe and all the hated neighbours of China including Japan, Korea etc and the nasty people in Hong Kong.
2. Painted by a black artist.
3. Is an anti racist picture.
4. Customer is a whiny idiot.
[The picture was] completely insensitive to one of the worst periods of human history. The famous toaster wars.
Both in this case btu apropos your comment, couldnt have put it better myself!

It is a bit of an odd painting I must say! If I saw this without context I'd think it was about skin colour being 'burnt', like burnt toast is black. It does seem racist to imply people's skin is burnt.

He has every right to be mad. You may not see it from his perspective because it isn’t personal to you.
But his perspective could be wrong, no? I am very much against racism, but, I think, his perspective was wrong. The painting, made by a black SA artist is clearly not intended to be racist, but those living in the west wrongly interpreted it as such.

So what exactly is it trying to show? What message is it giving out? It doesn't make any sense to me.

Have they? It's just a very small minority who have interpreted it as such.
You can interpret anything to be racist, doesn't make it so. The fact that the actual (black) artist who created it says it's not meant to be racist means the whole uproar is completely stupid.

With the majority of these people its all about who is posting the thread and not its subject matter...its like "This thread says that the sky is blue. OK, so who posted it...? Oh, its so and so. I don't like so and so...*proceeds to write reply* NO, its not blue!!!! what is wrong with you!?! what course do you study at uni? have they not taught you that the sky is in fact purple??!!"
