Just “sort of a play on the ‘klll whitey’ thing.” Oh, ok. And this is the guy Obama selected.
Via Daily Caller:
Former President Barack Obama’s portrait painter once depicted a black woman holding the cutoff head of a white woman in a reimagining of a story from the book of Judith.
Kehinde Wiley, the painter of Obama’s portrait for the National Portrait Gallery, reimagined the story of Judith beheading Holofernes from the deuterocanonical Book of Judith as a black woman beheading a white woman years ago.
“It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing,” Wiley told New York Magazine previously.
