I am utterly perplexed. I am flabbergasted! I can not justify in my mind the large upset that resulted from 5 words painted on the side of the building. A piece of art, an opinion, received death threats.
“HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US”
Maybe it’s a bit of my dad’s ideologies ingrained into my head about how “the world would run smoothly if “, but I don’t understand. It is ok to ignore art you don’t agree with. Five seconds it takes to walk away. Five words painted in black caused riots. Five blobs caused an outbreak of destruction.
