“I came upon twin fawns in the display case of a mom and pop toy and science store in kansas city, missouri. it took me two years to win the trust of the shop owner and save the money to buy them. a taxidermist spotted a dead deer by the side of the road. he stopped to properly dispose of the body and realized she was pregnant. he opened her and found near full-term twin fawns, he removed and preserved them. Deer rarely have twins and the taxidermist retained the uterine gesture of their bodies. i built them a vitrine with a light blue base. their prematurity exaggerates the delicacy of an incredibly sweet thing. the points of their hooves, the length of their lashes, the spots of their hides, nose to small nose in an ur-cartoonish realism … viewers’ eyes trick them into believing the fawns are breathing. the tragedy of beauty is its transience. The twins live forever in their own demise. they are sleeping beauties. they have been muses since i first saw them.We dress death in lilies and bronze the names of our dead sons on walls. we erect altars of toys and hold candlelight vigils to express hope. my twin fawns sleep endlessly on their baby blue block in my studio. the twins never opened their eyes yet their wondrous fatality evokes an acceptable alternative to death.”

*colour means nothing* (except the fact that PoC are socially, economically and politically marginalised from the moment they enter society because of their race, colour or ethnicity)  *we’re all human* (although PoC are constantly dehumanised, under-represented and their humanity constantly challenged by systematic racism thoroughly ingrained into our social consciousness) Iggy is disgusting.

AKA, I’m not racist, because I’m fucking a black dude and he lets me call him “my nigga”. 

When will people realize that ‘colorblindness’ isn’t a solution for racism, it’s just another way to erase the experiences of POC?

And when you erase our experiences, you’re practicing white supremacy.

If you refuse to see my color, you refuse to see me.
