Whenever people point to Mary Shelley and say “a woman invented sci-fi you know” I just think “well, I mean, technically a woman invented the whole concept of authoring books as far as we can tell but hey who’s keeping track”

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."


There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m sick of white people!! IM FUCKING SICK OF THEM!!!

"Not all white people."

"Stop generalizing."

"Not all white people."

"We all are human."

"Not all white people."

even the so called “good” white people wanna ignore this shit because it “makes them uncomfortable” fuck white people

Let me tell you something about the demographics of Philadelphia.
We are a predominantly black city.
We are one of the most starkly (de facto) segregated cities in America today.
Not only did I do most of my growing up here, I went to college here. And let me tell you, the amount of white people who swoop in to get what they want— whether it be an education at Drexel, Temple or Penn (or a trip to our tourist attractions— but don’t even care to mask their hatred for the black people who live here is overwhelming.
