Jermaine Rogers 'To Be Young Black And Gifted' Edition of 75 Size 20 x 20 Inches

Not really digging the imagery but i am digging the message behind these. Here are the details about the upper image “Concerning the ‘Prison’ imagery, Jermaine says, ‘Excuse my indulgence in a few statistics for a moment. Note the following numbers from the US Dept. Of Justice, complied in an article that I read recently: Among men, blacks (28.5%) are about six times more likely than whites (4.4%) to be admitted to prison during their life. There are more black men are in prison in America than are in college. Look at those statistics again. Ask yourself, ‘Why?” Jermaine’s latest 2 pieces will be available from JermaineRogers.com. He will be releasing them sometime between 3pm – 6pm EST on Thursday March 19th, 2009. They will both have an edition size of 75. Jermaine’s thoughts about the lower image are as follows, “The title and imagery ‘Execution’ are rather striking, in lieu of certain current events in the world. Jermaine mentions, ‘It’s interesting how our society provides several ways of teaching a child to get very comfortable with the feel of a pistol in his hand. Every little detail of this image has it’s own little meaning: I hope some of you will like it?”
