Graffiti & Artwork

Is graffiti an expression of artwork?
In my opinion is isn't. Graffiti originated from gangs who put up their gang symbols to mark their territory. It wasn't meant to be a form of artwork it was to let the other gangs know in whose territory they were in. If you travel through the neighborhoods of Detroit you will see that graffiti has ruined the look of neighborhoods that once were beautiful. For this reason I say that graffiti is not a form of artwork.

Black & White

I watched the first episode of black and white and it blew my mind that these when they had on their makeup still didn't look black or white. I think the show is exposing more of how black people are treated vs, how whites are treated. I don't think that the show is giving enough exposure to either point of view. Maybe after a few more episodes my opinion will change.

It's Almost over

Spring Break is slowly coming to an end. This last week has been very joyous even though I didn't do anything but stay home, eat and watch t.v. Although it was boring it was a very restful week. My one wish is that could have been 2 weeks instead of 1, but at least this semester is almost over.
