Christian Cooper Creates Graphic Novel About Racial Injustice

If you remember the Christian and Amy Cooper incident in Central Park? It was the exact same day as when George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis by the police. I was so badly shaken by this incident, as it touched a deep nerve.

Amy apologised for whats its worth, but Christian Cooper took a lot from the experience and went one further.

Christian Cooper, the Central Park bird-watcher who was racially profiled by a white woman, has created a new graphic novel for DC Comics about racial injustice influenced by his own experience.

Amazing and so very powerful I mean his cool calm handling of the incident was just incredible, then later seeing him accept his apology was powerful and now this?

I’ll be seeking out a copy just to have and share with others.

Street installations

This artist has created fake people and animals, placing them all over Washington DC and New York

I think of it as one step beyond the graffiti of the streets. Mark Jenkins has set a range of installations on the streets of Washington DC and New York. The installations are odd to say the least, but you can imagine what kind of react they get from passer-by. But don't worry, you don't need to imagine it, there's tons of videos with reactions on his Notes from the Underground site. Oh by the way, this was nicely found via Digg.com.
