For example, suppose a black artist living in the year 1900 painted a portrait of a black President of the United States. The intentions of the artist are clearly noble. He's dared to suggest a black person can aspire to such a high station. But wouldn't his art be offensive - at the least controversial - to most (circa 1900)?
Hell, many Whites today would STILL find a portrait of a Black President offensive.
