Re: The Spiritual Problem With Modernist Art

Heru, who the hell is to be the judge of what is and is not offensive??? Who is to be the judge of whether my intention was to express a great sentiment or to offend? Maybe what I find to be great art is offensive to 10 other people because they're uneducated boors with small minds? If you don't like it, then GODDAMNIT don't look at it. Problem solved... Be the guardian of your own goddamned soul and leave the rest of us alone.

Obviously this woman's behavior is the result of poor socialization. She speaks to her son this way because her mom (or guardian) spoke to her that way when she was child. Now, as an adult, she has come to believe that this sort of language and interaction with her son is acceptable. But should her behavior be used as a standard by which we judge all African-American parents? Can we even reach the conclusion, based on this woman's behavior, that all Black mothers interact with their children...

Well, of course not, Rowe. But my question really was not geared toward ALL African American parents, or mothers, or children or people at all. I (as I believe Cosby has been) was mischaracterized. If my question was in relation to anyone other than the one mother and child involved in the incident I witnessed ... then it would be one which relates to those other mothers who also show that type of behavior publicly towards their children. That certainly isn't every African American mother.
