To my Dear Fellow Artists and Friends,
I awoke with a deep sense of sadness this morning. The division within the bubble and my own circle of friends is the cause of my sorrow.
We are here to celebrate creation – birth – not destruction, pain and Hate.
RB do not make any money from me.. they never have. Even so, as small as I am in this RB world, I have to stand and say that my CORE cannot bend to this.
I am considering closing my account here which is breaking my heart.
This debate has triggered the distress in me. It is actually hurting.
I feel as though.. every inch we allow Hate to gain
Gives a mile to HATE and provides ICONS to the ignorant and unevolved.
I feel this way about the Hitler designs. White Supremicists (sic) need no help. They are doing fine as they are. Those who seek to hurt or take advantage of women and children – they also need no help. They have the market cornered already… it’s a lolly shop out there. ;(
This may seem like a trivial fight.. but I disagree. There is a bigger picture involved. RB, at this point, could very easily send a message to the world by not accepting these HATE FILLED artworks. But now that the artworks are on the cover of Time – I guess the dollar calls.
If you would like to inform yourself on the debate here.. please check out my favourites. I have been trying to collect as much of the debate as possible.
Don’t ask me why I stand. Ask yourself Why you don’t.
