How I kicked whites out of the Forum of Black Journalists without saying a word!

…And I’m not racist. I’m just a visual poet at work!

There is currently a huge debate in the country on whether South Africans should condone how Forum of Black Journalists “kicked-out” their white colleagues at the forum’s function attended by The President of the ANC two weeks or so back.

I played with letters of the name Forum of Black Journalists on my personal project words theater, where I try to use nothing but the letters or words themselves to convey their meaning and intended effect.

I removed all white(s) from the name Forum of Black Journalistsletters: O, B, A. The end result is the Forum of Black Journalists with no white(s).

The only white (colour) serves as negative space, and I used it to represent whites (in the industry) surrounding the forum but with the white(s) not being part of the Black Journalists Forum.

The above is just me playing around with the 23 letters and one of our country’s current racial debate. I however don’t aim at condoning any exclusion of particular group based on their skin colour.
