A espessura do racismo

Jane Doe killed by police - Andres Serrano

The Morgue (Jane Doe killed by police) (1991), Andres Serrano

"She’s a black woman. But she’s been in the morgue for over two months because she’s a Jane Doe, and as a result, she’s starting to decompose and if you look really closely, there are patches of white skin. I asked the doctor and he confirmed that there is white skin under black skin. A teacher of his once took a very thin slice of skin off a cadaver and showed it to his students and said, «This is the thickness of racism.»"
