Nando's apologises for racist painting depicting black people in a toaster Watch
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.
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.
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.
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.
