But I'm Always WHITE!, 2022
The question isn’t whether today’s students are being indoctrinated but rather when the indoctrination began. Pages from out-of-use public school library books that white wash history serve as the background for each piece. Wheatpasted on top and selectively removed is the scene where Peter Privldege exclaims, “But I’m always WHITE!”, instead of always right. Peter Privledge is from my earlier work, Astounding Fancy #15.
