Sac State Student Under Fire for Controversial Art Project

video



SACRAMENTO—

Only one word comes to mind when you see these images posted on Instagram: disturbing.

Students got an eyeful walking on the campus of Sacramento State University earlier in December. Two males dangling from a tree with nooses around their necks, portraying a time that many African Americans wish they could forget – lynchings, all because of the color of their skin.

“I think it’s more impactful when you use actual people, sends a stronger message that just a painting,” said Sac State student Alexander Richmond.

That was the message the artist wanted to get across.

An African American woman, Christina Edwards – a senior at the university – defended her project.

“The purpose of this performance was to bring to light social injustices and the issue of inequality that impacts me and my community as a whole,” Edwards said.

Edwards says she chose to illustrate this time in history by using race reversal, in an effort to shine new light on an old but standing matter. And says she followed all campus procedures.

The university doesn’t see it that way, however. University President Alexander Gonzalez released this statement saying, in part: “The university did not approve the display, and I want to assure everyone that I am working to address the multiple issues raised by this incident.”

She should have set them on fire too to make it feel even more real.

I saw the reaction the last student had.  He talked about how he was disturbed by it because that's how his friend committed suicide.

Not QUITE the same.  A person choosing to hang themselves vs being dragged out of your bed, strung up on a tree while whites have a picnic, setting your body on fire and having whites take your body parts as a souvenir is not QUITE comparable.

If it had been a white student doing this, that same student probably would have said it was bringing awareness to suicide.
