  • Description:

    I was originally inspired to auction my anti-racism painting in response to the audacity of George Zimmerman capitalizing on his notoriety as a killer by auctioning his painting on ebay. Ironically, on the very same day that the Zimmerman auction closed at over $100,000, ebay removed my piece, citing a violation of their policy of not selling anything on their site that represents the KKK. The hypocrisy was that ebay was at the time selling over 1,500 other items related to the KKK.

    Buoyed by the overwhelming support from people writing to express their outrage at ebay's decision, I am now auctioning my painting 'A Tale Of Two Hoodies' here. As originally planned, 50% of the proceeds of the sale of this painting will go to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.

    I hope we can send a message by raising at least as much support for an organization that is dedicated to ending hate, prejudice and violence as the support Zimmerman was able to attain for being the poster boy for racism.

    Provenance / History of This Item:

    Inspired by the Trayvon Martin case, this painting was meant to symbolize the travesty of racially profiling innocent children and how present day prejudices affect policy. A year before the current ebay controversy, the piece created passionate discoursed on Glenn Beck's show, The Hufffington Post and many sites around the world.
