Dear “All Women Are Beautiful” White Women…

"For now, given that the process of cultural crossover in the United States often takes place within the broader context of the marginalization of Black people, it’s difficult for Blacks to see genuine, well-intentioned white participation as a nonthreatening sign of cultural appreciation. This is especially true when the overwhelming collective pattern of cultural interaction suggests that white folks - like most other dominating groups in postcolonial or postenslavement societies - are complex enough to find a way to love the culture and yet hate on its creators (Well, complex is one word for it). Black communication becomes controversial only in a society that deprecates Blackness."

Something to remember, when you start a new project, film, track list, painting, poem, whatever, there is no right or wrong outcome; the product will always be better than what you started with, which was: NOTHING!  

If I say, “Aight, Lauren, I want you to get in the studio (lettin em hear all dat emotion, fire, passion in your voice & rate of speed) and Create a ten-poem CD.” Once I complete that, there’s nothing for me to do, but branch out. Whether it means exposure or actual sales, it’s all good results. 

Amen.

Politically-Driven Portrait Made of 3,500 Lipsticks

For a show at Birzeit University, Palestinian artist Amer Shomali chose to create a portrait of Leila Khaled, the woman known as the “poster girl of Palestinian militancy.” Unlike a typical portrait, Shomali’s medium of choice for this project is lipstick. Rather than painting the iconic member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine with paints or even drawing her image with lipstick, the artist uses a custom-built board on which fully intact tubes of lipsticks are affixed—3,500 tubes, to be exact.
Using 14 different colors, Shomali has managed to recreate the famous image of the revolutionary woman wearing a kaffiyeh and holding an AK-47. Though it’s not entirely clear why Khaled’s pixelated portrait titled The Icon is made specifically out of lipstick, the piece is open to interpretations. One theory could be the intriguing and controversial juxtaposition of a powerful and independent woman with an item that is associated with frivolous materialism and femininity and how it parallels the contrasting image of Khaled herself, a woman adorned with a traditional Arab headdress typically worn by men while holding a destructive firearm.
