“Anti-Racism”: White South African Uncle Tom Stages London Exhibit Attacking Whites; “Anti-Racist” Blacks Respond by Condemning Him for “Racism,” and Violently Shutting Down Show

I posted the following comment at the article in the Telegraph:

Poetic justice. White South African “director” Brett Bailey is a citizen in a nation in which his race is currently being slaughtered by blacks in a slow-motion genocide. So, does he portray that very real, murderous, current racism? Hardly. Instead, he calls himself an “anti-racist,” and sucks up to racist blacks, who themselves support genocide against whites. The genocidal, racist blacks then responded to Bailey’s obsequiousness by violently shutting down his show. That's consistent "anti-racism," for you.
 

 

Exhibit B 'human zoo' show cancelled by the Barbican following campaigner protest

The show, directed by white South African Brett Bailey, has been cancelled following concerns about an 'extreme' protest outside the Barbican

The Barbican has cancelled its controversial art show Exhibit B following a disturbance [violent, racist assault] during a protest outside the arts centre last night.

Directed by white South African director Brett Bailey, the installation, which features black actors in chains recreating “human zoos”, has been called racist by protestors who have marched in opposition to the show.

[Directed by a director, was it? What about artists contributing to an alleged art show?]

The Barbican issued a statement to say the exhibition’s five-day run had been called off following an incident during a protest last night.

The Metropolitan Police was called to the scene after reports of a fight [attack] during the demonstration but no arrests were made.

[I.e., the black attacker got yet another freebie!]

The Barbican said it was “the extreme nature of the protest” outside the venue on Tuesday that led to the cancellation of the exhibition.

[A little ultra-violence? How could the violence be so extreme, without the attacker being arrested?]

It said: “We find it profoundly troubling that such methods have been used to silence artists and performers and that audiences have been denied the opportunity to see this important work.”

[But not so troubling that they are going to resist them. Then again, there were no “artists” being silenced.]
 

 

The venue has been under pressure to withdraw the show after an online petition attracted more than 20,000 signatures urging the Barbican to cancel the exhibition’s run.

The petition called the show “an outrageous act of complicit racism”.

“We are deeply offended yet not surprised that the colonialism this piece purports to expose does nothing more than reinforce how effective it was and remains as a caging instrument of white supremacists,” the petition said.

[“Caging instrument”? So, they’re as pedantic as they are violent.]
 

 

“We charge the Barbican with exhibiting institutional racism for agreeing to stage this poison.”

In response, the Barbican said it is “categorically not neutral on the subject of racism” and that the show was aimed as a critique of human zoos.

“We state categorically that the Barbican is not neutral on the subject of racism; we are totally opposed to it and could not present a work that supported it,” it said in a statement.

“Instead, Exhibit B raises, in a serious and responsible manner, issues about racism. It aims to conform to [?] objectification of human beings and the abhorrent historical attitudes to race during the colonial era, and to question how far society has moved on."

That word "fight" is used a lot.

Like Nicholas says, an ATTACK and not a FIGHT as the word FIGHT normally, ordinarily and commonly understood. AN ATTACK.

Emmitt Till went down south and got in a fight with two white men.

How do we know if an exhibit is offensive if we are not allowed to see it?

Irony, satire, sarcasm, these are not universally recognized in all cultures. I have learned this to my peril. You can't explain "anti-racist humor or "artistic" museum exhibits, to those who don't get it. You just dig yourself a deeper hole. Some people can't tell the difference between an article from the "Onion" and one from the "New York Times but then, neither can I!
