Artwork’s message too close to home?
The protest surrounding Sheila Pinkel’s montage (Quick Takes, July 28) brings to mind the Jack Nicholson character’s response in the movie “A Few Good Men”: “The truth? You can’t handle the truth.”
It also reveals how racism and ethnic tensions continue to simmer just below the patina of denial created and maintained by the white and powerful of our nation.
And when the veil is snatched away in answer to the question, “What’s your/our point,” the reply, as now-expat Randall Robinson notes in his most recent book, “Quitting America,” is “Oh, that.”
