Whitewash explores the African-American experience and race in surfing. It touches on some pertinent issues about how the history of surfing was detached from it’s indigenous Hawaiian origins and largely regarded as having it’s founding or “discovery” with European settlers. It also focuses on the issues of segregation and racism at beaches in California and of how the belief that “black people can’t swim” was passed down from generation to generation.
I’m so glad this documentary exists. There is also great evidence of sea culture in West Africa which after the slave trade forced the people to move inland. Surfing has never been a white-trait.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."
"I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone."
For those who’d like to see the entire collection, “Icons Of The Bible” will on display from November 2014 to February 2015 in Atlanta, GA.

I remember watching this movie when i was like 7 years old and at the time i had no idea as to why cuba teared up cause in my head i was like “cuba calm down. he was just messing around, you didn’t die.” But now that i’m older and i see what an officer is capable of doing and getting away with, i don’t blame him for being so emotional and scared
And to see one of your own do that to you
"… but don’t let it be a black and a white one. cause they’ll slam ya down to the street top. black police showin out for the white cop.” - Ice Cube (Fuck The Police, 1988)
this scene always makes me cringe, like that officer could have shot him right through his skull and that white officer would have patted him on the back for it………
