I am the artist! Thanks for pointing out that somewhere along the line, the accompanying text was deleted. Needless to say, I’m pretty disappointed that the image was reblogged without attribution - please, please understand that work gets put into making images and that art is work, artists deserve - at the very least - credit.
It’s a hard lesson in putting art on the internet :/ However, I super appreciate the support I have gotten in the past day or two.
"The most fucked up thing about racism is this. When you talk about it with white people, they always make the discussion about their feelings. About how they personally aren’t racist. All of these atrocities are happening to my people and the first thing you think about is YOU? And you expect me to believe you aren’t racist?"-
"Not every man must be violent toward every woman in order for violence to control women’s behavior. Rather, knowing that some women are victims of horrific violence is enough to control the behavior and limit the movement of all women in society. The creation of a culture of fear secures men’s status over women” (Yodanis, 2004, p. 658)"-
