Blacked out: Writer is turning celeb sexual misconduct statements into ‘Blackout Poetry’

Published

on

A poet has been printing out the statements from powerful celebrities regarding sexual misconduct and turning them into powerful erasure poetry.

The poet has reworked the statements from Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., Harvey Weinstein, Richard Dreyfuss and many more.

Erasure poetry is a genre in which the writer takes a block or passage of words and blacks out large portions, leaving a short passage remaining. In this case, the writer is leaving text that reveals “a revelation of hidden intent in a text I find questionable,” the poet, Isobel O’Hare told Fast Company.

The works have been gaining a large amount of attention on social media, even catching the attention of Weinstein’s most vocal accuser, Rose McGowan.

“I came of age in a culture of demons I respect more than women,” Weinstein’s statement was blacked out to read.

“I ignored reality for eons,” Dreyfuss’ poem reads.

“There are stories about me that have been fueled by my own behavior,” O’Hare’s edit on Spacey’s statement was edited to say.

“My dick is a question I run from,” C.K.’s poem asserts.

O’Hare explained to Fast Company that she became inspired after noticing similar language and phrasing in each statement.

“I started noticing, while reading these statements, that many of them used similar language,” O’Hare explained. “There was a theme of ‘that was the culture then’ and sexist language like ‘these women’ kept appearing. I wanted to draw attention to that and to show what the men writing these statements didn’t realize they were revealing about themselves.”

Brown University Cultural Leftists Demand Destruction of Classical Roman Emperor Statues on Campus

They hate western civilization.

Left-wing racial ideologues at Brown University in Rhode Island are demanding that the school destroy two classical statues of iconic Roman emperors, claiming that the works of art represent “white supremacy.”

Amanda Brynn, Justin Han, Sam Kimball, Junaid Malik, Olivia Mayeda, and Kelley Tackett, six undergraduate students affiliated with “Decolonization at Brown,” are demanding that the school destroy two classical-style statues of Roman emperors Augustus Caesar and Marcus Aurelius.

They claim in a blog post that the statues “were brought to our campus with the goals of upholding the ideal of the ‘perfect’ white form, white civilization, white supremacy and colonialism — ideas that we believe are incompatible with Brown today.

This is not just about monuments. It is also about the kinds of people and histories that students at Brown today are taught to idealize.”

They’re demanding that the classical statues, which appear to be replicas of famous Renaissance and ancient art, be replaced with pieces created by “artists of color.”

Marcus Aurelius was Roman emperor in the 2nd century in an era of peace and prosperity for the ancient civilization, and is known for documenting the philosophy of stoicism in literature that has been studied for millennia.

Ironically, classical-style statues have been targeted for destruction on cultural grounds before. The Vandals, a Germanic tribe that warred with the Roman Empire in its era of decline, associated their name with property damage and barbaric behavior through their frequent destruction of cultural statues.

The stringent ideologues detest the glories of western civilization, and would destroy the cultural inheritance of the American legacy before it is passed to future generations. Their own liberal fanaticism will fade from history as an uncreative and empty religion, whereas the legacies of great men will endure.
