So because it could cause controversy, it shouldn't be done? No. That's what art does- brings about emotions.

I'm all about people expressing themselves the way they want to, even if it is hateful, controversial, or flat out mean....but they should be prepared for and expect criticism from people with opposing views.

I'm sure they expect it. The fashion, beauty, and modelling industries have quite a bit of experience with criticism.

They have overall, yes. Not recently of course.
But either way, it's all about intent. If its for a purely artistic POV? It's not racist.

Art can be offensive and controversial and racist.



I'd love to know a time when people of color were the oppressors of white people.
