Artist Who Created Obama`s Painting Has Previously Painted Black Women Beheading White Women. Says “It’s Sort Of A Play On The ‘Kill Whitey’ Thing”

In this article from the NY Mag in 2012, Wiley says of the painting-  “It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing”. Do we even need to bring up the double standard in the lack of media outrage here?
