The transition

We take the work of two different approaches that religion has made on race for instance. we open with this beautiful painting, depicting christ in a beautiful artistic way. According to Blakely, black characters were first drawn in there with in a positive manner but throughout history they transitioned from that and into a negative one. We now also take a look at racial supremacy within the gospel, or a falsified image of which. As we take a look at the reading labeled “Folklore as Racial Gospel” the idea of black men and women and holding them in regard as slaves or helpers at the time transitioned from these religious abnormalities and with time into paintings and modern day racism. Treated as property, entertainment, help and slaves, I can assure you of the racism, “or lack off”, over that course of history, our only amends is ensuring it never repeats.
