This image is a culmination of racial and gender perceptions and the limited views of the normal American youth. We stereotypes so many different cultures around the world and categorize what we think are people's lifestyles, wealth, freedoms, and ultimately their happiness and impact on our lives and lifestyles. It has always amazed me how opinionated people can be even though they know and understand so little about the things they have such strong opinions about. I want this piece to inspire discussion, investigation, and ultimately acceptance of what other people's views are about the world in which we live.
Ultimately none of us really understand each other. We can be married to the same person most of our lives, live in the same space and share money, food, culture, religion, politics, children, hopes, dreams and desires and never really know the person we are living with. What makes us think we are such experts on the lifestyles of people on the other side of the world.
