I think the NYtimes and many of its reporters have had a long history of been intellectual and emotionally lazy and self serving but Sabrina Tavernise @stavernise checked her political agenda and listened and then had an amazing exchange with #nataliekitroeff Great podcast about why a huge chunk of folks who voted for Obama then Voted for trump and why this center left Democratic Clinton Joe Biden Nafta Free trade TPP neoliberal etc has added hugely to this crisis that has resulted in Trump. He is a consequence and catalyst. We need better leadership. Also on another Note maybe will change my mind but I like the idea of a Warren/Harris ticket

Notes on painting. One day I want to have a few classics. This is no swipe against KAWS who I think is making work that reflects the growth of hip Pop which I think makes him a really good maker cause where he comes from and I never will be mad at artist for reflecting where he comes from. Pointing out differences isn’t an attack

A lot of black folks say fuck the police and watching this and thinking about the police as a function of the state born out of Slavery and today functions as a place of punishment not accountability and healing

Deadass I’m a Christian and believe very much in forgiveness but I will never fuck with Joe Biden and any of the people black white green people with power who back then and today have decided that hurt people (fathers daughter sons children moms ) need to be punished and locked away. I believe in accountability and healing and community.i love black people I love poor people I love brown people I love everybody and that means at your lowest I will always advocate for your healing for ability to be whole. Joe Biden and all those in power trusted to make the best decisions for the global community cause America is part of the global community those with power who advocated for locking people up for punishment need to find out how to be accountable to those people those communities and be in those communities doing ground work for these folk’s healing. I use to be a social worker worked with children who had been locked up and were trying to reintegrate back in society. I saw failures and demons that I couldn’t imagine. Kids who were so used to hurt and violence that every situation was read through those lens. I saw kids fight their way out of those place through health engagement accountability and love. The highest concentration of rape survivors is in prison. From them I learnt how rape can fuck you up. You lock a kid up at a time when they are developing social skills and norm and then expect that somehow that person will be a healthy individual. You cannot love black people you cannot love brown people you cannot love poor people and believe in prison. That is a lie that has been told and inherited from slavery. To believe in prison is Love a tribe, your tribe and tribe I’ve learnt a lot of times did include those I love, they are not part of your tribe even if I am and I will never go anywhere without my brother. Those of us not in power who live in communities have to unlearn the lie that concerns for victims should be displayed for calls for punishment and imagine a society of accountability and hold our leadership to those standards.

#derrickalexiscoard I grew up in the black gospel christian tradition which is full of hope and to a fault hold on to we keep our heads high things are gonna get better we gonna work till things get better. It’s a refuge for whatever happened in the world to you, it’s alright, God’s got a plan. Im not a cynical person that has always felt like it comes from a white Gen X middle class tradition. Those are very different traditions, formed from different history two different experiences and produce very different art. South Park is cynical. tekashi69 is cynical, DMX isn’t cynical, Ghostface isn’t cynical, Tupac wasn’t cynical Nipsey Hussle wasn’t cynical they were Gospel based and full of hope. As a black person who makes art that’s my tradition.
