Today, these two white cops arrested this black woman for defacing the Black Lives Matter street mural in NYC the cops had been assigned to protect.
And while doing it, she was saying "Re-fund the police."

She supports the police, because crime in NYC has risen sharply. Yet here they are arresting her. Meanwhile, these police were assigned to protect this artwork inspired by a movement that largely doesn't like them.

Bizarro world in one photo.
Instead of trying to untangle all this, I think we can simply say that times of radical ideological rule lead to chaos and make for strange bedfellows--who are then forced to act counterintuitively.

Bottom line, though, we gotta come up with a new way of ordering our society.

Mural paintings are very unique &
have always been a part of Kerala temple culture.
Traditionally 5 colours were used to paint. Green, black, red, white and yellow. They were obtained naturally by extracting from plants, stones and soot.

Hey folks. We’re back at SFUSD HQ for another round of Washington #mural thunder. On the Board of Ed agenda: finding a way to hide but not destroy the murals. Some will call this is a reversal after the June vote to paint over the mural. But it isn’t. Here’s why...
As our story explained (but other outlets unfortunately downplayed or ignored), the June BOE vote had a big fat caveat: if there were any signs of delay from legal challenges etc, the board would opt to cover (ie hide) but not destroy the murals.
Thx to regulations, odds of delay were, oh, about 100%, & the board members knew it. Mark Sanchez, the member who said destroying the mural would be like reparations, told us that night that “chances of painting over prior to paneling are probably long.”…

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD
I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...

My reflections last night on manipulation of people with #fakenews #propaganda On seeing #mural I was struck by similarity with early 20thC graphics in fake Protocols of the Elders of Zion, used by many - including Hitler in Mein Kampf - to attack Jews. @mrjamesob
That got me thinking about another famous fake, the Zinoviev letter, used against Labour in 1924. It was published by Daily Mail 4 days before the election. Did that swing it? When MI5 found it was fake, they were too embarrassed to tell new Tory govt.
Then I thought about fantastic #JuliusCaesar I've just seen, where oratory is used cynically to sway people. This apposite production makes clear how the people (promenade audience) are pushed first one way then another by sophistry. Brilliant performances btw @NationalTheatre
