    African American art student Christina Edwards says of her controversial work, ‘The purpose of this performance was to bring to light social injustices and the issues of inequality that impact me and my community as a whole.’


    A college art project that had two men hanging from a tree branch with nooses around their necks has outraged and dumbfounded the student-artist's classmates and the outside world.
    Christina Edwards, a senior at Sacramento State University, defended the Dec. 4 performance/installation that was part of a series called "Restitution."


    "The purpose of this performance was to bring to light social injustices and the issues of inequality that impact me and my community as a whole," she wrote in an open letter to the school body, obtained by The Campus Culture.


    Edwards said that, as a young African-American woman, she does not feel society has changed enough in terms of racial equality to foster truly equal opportunities. Her goal with the project was to gauge community reaction.

    Sorry. Wasted all my Marginalized White Guy outrage on the black Santa controversy.

    Oprah believes the same thing - Whitey's fault. No equality. Blacks are victims and will be forever.

    She gets an F on her art project. That is NOT the proper way to lynch someone. Fail! Fail! Fail!

    Yeah, shitty job on the lynching. Those honkies don't look they're dead or suffering for a gasp of breath. They look like they're comfortably hanging from a tree, if I passed by these two guys on the way to class, I'd start laughing like I did when I saw the picture....

    Lynching refers to a mob killing someone, not necessarily by hanging. To be lynched could mean dragged, beaten, set on fire, etc... you don't have to string anyone up for it to be a lynching.

    Knocking the crackers out instead of lynching them would have certainly been more realistic and period correct.:whistle:

    I bet if you took all the lynchings that occurred in the history of the United States, they would be outnumbered by the amount of black on black homicides in the US in one single year....

    Lets see the genious college intellectuals do some art on the every day murders occurring in Barack's Chicago.

    Speaking of art. If black is beautiful, then I just left a masterpiece in the toilet.
