FPB IS A REGATTA OF IGNORANCE SAILING ON A STORM OF ARROGANCE #CLASSIFYTHIS FUCKERS.

PM is spitting mad, there is nothing like the combination of ignorance and arrogance to make PM’s being shake it like it was a Polaroid picture of fury being hung out to dry. The Film and Publication Board of South Africa has given The Spear painting by Brett Murray, a representation of President Jacob Zuma with his pants down, a “16N” rating. This action by the FPB is a regatta of ignorance sailing on a storm of arrogance.The Film and Publications Board implied it had an obligation to suppress political criticism. Fuck you. You have just destroyed your credibility.You have no knowledge of South African Art History, yet you think that you have a right, let alone a jurisdiction, to give an artwork a “16N” rating. Fuck you.  This is a sad day for South African arts and artists, and if you for one minute think, that the arts community will respect your “right” to “rate” an artwork, fuck you, and by the way FPB – fuck you.

Sam Nhlengethwa, the death of Biko, 1990 ( fuck you FPB)

Trevor Makhoba ( fuck you FPB)

Tracey Rose, the Kiss ( fuck you FPB)

Dumile Feni , from the Nina series, ( fuck you FPB).

    As someone at Goodman said early on in the controversy days, it may well be that the publicity this generates does more to raise awareness of the issues around race, and politics than if they (ANC, FPB) had kept their stupid mouth shut
