The Jungle Bunny Gave You Fever. The Only Cure is to Fuck the Bunny. She Wants It., 2011

Edition of 6


This is a stereotype of the Jungle Bunny; the hypersexual, exotic creature from another land. The aspect of being hypersexual was often used from the 1400-1940s as a reason as to why raping women of color wasn’t seen as a crime against humanity. They wanted it obviously. The term “jungle fever”, as if being involved with a person of color implies that you’ve been stricken with some sort of disease because it’s not natural for two people from different ethnic backgrounds to “love” one another. There can only be a feverish lust between the two of them, no true actual feelings of love. How could you love a Jungle Bunny? This piece confronts the stereotype of women of color being lascivious, hypersexual, animalistic, exotic beings.

The Unfit Mommy and Her Spawn Will Wreck Your Comfortable Suburban Existence, 2010

60.75 x 47 inches

Edition of 7


This piece relates to the “Mammy Complex” in that it implies that black women are careless with their own children, and ineffective at raising contributing members of society. Her children are not as “precious” as the children of her white peers. They aren’t cherished, and they will grow up to be menaces that need to be kept away from us. This enforces the idea of the “Super-predator”. Children that will inevitably grow up to be menaces of society and the only solution to keeping them away from us is to lock them up. They were born menaces, from a menacing mother, and we want nothing to do with them. We’d rather not live around them in our suburbia. They’ll ruin it for us. Seeing black children in this light, as the “Super-predator” paves the way for mass incarceration of black males (adults and children) and for situations we now find ourselves in like the shooting of Trayvon Martin and many others that have been killed based on fear alone.
