Black neighbors who support Obama in an uproar over yard signs.

by Johnson Friday, Oct. 26, 2012 at 10:32 PM

Black neighbors mad at hateful Obama yard signs wants to put an end to them.

Akron Ohio is a great example of a post industrial city that never took the leap from rust belt state to high tech valley. Focus has been on one neighborhood of late near downtown Akron, but is in the oldest section of the city where the founder of Akron lived Simon Perkins, now the area is littered with abandon houses, desperate wine o and drug houses with all your favorite drugs. The street is near EAST AVE. Perkins Park is on the street where a house that displays a mural of Obama with his arms spread open as like Christ was nailed to the cross, but Obama shirt has signs of being torn, and ripped in places, and set on fire as he stands above a nuclear bomb blast below him. One can wonder what is meant with the nuclear explosion, as the earth fills the back drop of the scene as Obama stands in front of the earth and you can clearly see the American land mass. Is the artist trying to predict a war with Iran soon? while ALL this is depicted you look to the left side of the mural showing ex presidents Bill Clinton, George Bush, Jimmy Carter and George H. Bush just looking on with approval. That isn't what makes this mural, so controversial that have the neighbors complaining. One can see just above the left side of the mural another sign with an image of a half nude black woman with both brest exposed, and who resemble the first Lady Michelle Obama. She appears to be pregnant and you can see through her stomach to what appears to be a still born baby and Obama's head inside her. The artist has painted in large lettering.

"THE PRESIDENT IS PRO GAY" and in another line "PLANED PRO ABORTION PARENTHOOD". In much larger lettering, the artist wrote "AMERICAN BABY KILLER" and a quotation from the Bible's Old Testament book of JEREMIAH 1.5 "BEFORE I FORMED YOU IN THE WOMB I KNEW YOU." That's fighting words to those who love Obama, said, one neighbor who’s close eye view from the signs where he lives. That's not all, but written on the sign's, reverse side has even more shocking words and images with an image of a black man with a mask and a bull's eye target with a bat and bullet holes. The title appears to read “THE DARK NIGHT RISES “,then it say “TO BAN YOUR GUNS U.N. TREATY.”
“THE MILITARY CAN ARREST YOU BY N.D.A.A.” Over to your right side the letters “B.A.T.” which is Brut, Assassin, Tyrant next to it. The artist say, that people say it looks like Obama, but as he tells it “It could be any body's face, as is a painting of Jesus Christ, we don't know who posed for the image of Jesus more then this image of a man in a mask is Obama.on the sign.The artist say, "I've had kid come to my house picking fights and throwing bricks through my glass screen door and kicking in my front door at night last year. I had to chase them down in my car. One kid in board day light spraied painted on one sign and I followed him till he went home, then I called the police and his mother came and ask me not to press charges." I got a gun so if they wanna mess with me like Trayvon Martin, then it's on. I'll stand my ground on my own land."

It's art.
Nothing can stop art. Good art and Bad art, nothing can stop Art.
Don't even try to because it will consume you by the energy you give, trying to stop it.
Life is art, art is life. Try to understand it but never try to stop Art.
Resistance is futile.
