the infant who’s gender is not yet determined, but it looks like the artist is leaning toward male is covered
what I take from this is once again is black women are never to be covered or protected, even as their sole purpose to ankhs as the manufactures of their sons, sons who are to be protected and covered at all costs
Open your third eye to that.
True, but how do you know it’s not homage to the male artist’s mother? Maybe his mom read while pregnant with him and to him and he felt it played a huge role in the man that he became. I haven’t read too far into “ankh shit” but outside of those extremist that make ridiculous memes, it’s actually very intriguing, from what I have read. As far as her being naked what would you rather? It seems to me that you’re dissecting the piece by the surface level qualities of nudity and gender. I take it as the recognition of power of the transference of energy. Sure it would’ve been nice if there was a set of twins in there, I guess. Also, there are “girls” who have low-cuts and wear glasses so the gender up to you to assume lol (even though I’m sure his intention was for the offspring to be seen as a boy)
he couldn’t put clothes on his own momma?
With illustrations such as these the womans face is either half way or partially missings
she is always naked
she is always thin yet her belly is always full with child and her breasts perky and a boy is always inside
it’s not about celebrating women as much as it is the pornification of black women.
Also, her book is closed. She isn’t reading it, just holding it. Whereas the child’s book is wide open, even wearing glasses. it’s clear that the child is reading/absorbing knowledge. It’s also odd that the child is clothed, but she is naked? Seeing as the baby is in the womb, it should be the reverse.
Can’t ever enjoy anything on tumblr; people want to dissect every damn thing.
"Elmo is with his good friend, Lupita. They are talking about all the great things about their skin. For example, Elmo’s skin just happens to be very ticklish. Lupita’s skin happens to be a beautiful brown color. Skin can come in all different shades and colors. Isn’t skin just the best? However, ticklish or smooth or black or brown or white or tan, be sure to love the skin you are in."
I love this. I LOVE THIS. I love this. Children need to see this. Adults need to see this.
