What would happen to Walker’s art in a world where racism didn’t exist? Does her work help us to realize a problem and to solve it, or does it perpetuate the problem?
Walker’s work tries to force on me differences which I don’t perceive to exist. I see a difference of skin color, but that is really no difference at all. However, it seems that some continue to think that whites have a perpetual debt to pay to minorities for crimes committed 150 years ago. I’m sorry that slavery existed, but why should I feel shame?
If one race is constantly reminding the other of crimes long dead and buried, how will the two ever be reconciled???
