naive

Description: Another early (1980s) example of the feelings i sought to speak after only smatterings of direct experience in a few ghettos in the u.s. (mostly in michigan). That i focus only on African American folks exposes my naivete. On the other hand, i think i did pick up on the basic hellish of some urban realities, since i knew a few people who lived in such places, as well as partied with them (as the only 'white boy' to do so, in my locale). The 'you take, you take' text seeks to speak to the "gang-bangers" i was obsessed with as a youth (uncritically accepting the way in which the well-funded media framed the topic). Original lost. This copy made from an old slide. Looks like I scanned this piece backwards! Oh well!
