The painting you see below of Antoine Dodson is being shown at an art gallery. A controversy has broken out regarding whether this painting, which was created by Dave MacDowell, of the internet sensation is racist — or just funny. Look at it and tell us what you think in the comment section below.
While Dave MacDowell is well-known, he might be going over the line with this Antoine Dodson piece. A Colt 45 in one hand, a cigarette in another hand, bling around his neck and vicious dogs in the background? That’s hitting on quite a number of negative stereotypes.
And while we’re on this path, why is Antoine Dodson dressed in drag. Nowadays, he says he’s a straight man — so that too might be offensive.
Personally, I think it’s funny … but it also might be racist and offensive to gays. What do you think?
