Josh Kline, ‘Skittles’, 2014
Kline presents Skittles, an industrial refrigerator containing smoothies produced by the artist using unconventional and poetic combinations of ingredients including kale chips, squid ink, sneakers, phone bills, and pepper spray. Each smoothie stands as a portrait of a different contemporary lifestyle. When grouped together, they evoke a landscape of aspiration, taste, and – at times – deprivation in a metropolis like New York City.

If I was a male rapper responding in that way, it would have been no big deal, but when a black woman stands up for herself suddenly she has an attitude problem. Besides, who cares? It’s Fox.

I decided that my circumstance was severe enough to start a gofundme campaign. Please take a moment to read my current situation.
I’m Ashley. I’m a 20 year old animation student in Atlanta Georgia. When I started college almost 4 years ago, I thought my time here would fly by easily. Unfortunately, during the winter break of my first year at SCAD, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The numbness in my feet and hands meant that I had to drop art classes and take lectures instead. I’ve accepted that I have to get through school at my own pace and that “graduating on time” doesn’t really have a meaning for me.
Since my diagnosis, I’ve lived in constant stress over bills. I have no health insurance. I do not come from a wealthy family. I’ve had trouble keeping any minimum wage job because of my health. My parents still receive my hospital bills from several years ago and they’ve been slowly paying them off and deferring my student loan payments.
Recently, I’ve experienced an attack similar to a heart attack. Considering my age and the fact that I haven’t had any sort of treatment for my MS in months, the doctors at the ER agreed it was more of a musculoskeletal problem than anything affecting my heart. Regardless, many tests were run on me during the countless hours I was at that hospital and I fear the bills that the trip to the ER have created.
My girlfriend and I are both unemployed and I am too weak and unable to provide any sort of work for money.
So I’m here asking for help.
Please consider helping me or sharing my story with your followers.
PLEASE REBLOG AND DONATE IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO.
i feel like cops are getting even more tyrannical/militant because they know we have cameras/we will live update their attacks on social media/we will share. it’s as though they feel that they are being taken advantage of because they can’t commit their crimes without the [more difficult to discredit than the word of black by-standers] evidence from still and moving image and sound.
there is an indignant violence that comes from the fear of losing a place to hide lately
