    So I was sent this message (this is just an excerpt) by PM in regard to my Metoo diorama:

    I think you need to ask yourself if you are racist. Do you have any friends that are not white? Do you feel threatened or intimidated by people of color? Do you hold dislike people of color moving to your cities and suburbs?

    I dont have the power or agenda like a racist, I cant single out and oppress people because they come from a different culture or background or have a different skin color. Whereas you with your brush and your pride in mini painting can inspire many racist ideologies and viewpoints prevalent on the internet today. I know there are certain people in this hobby who don't think too highly of people of color and want to keep certain doors closed and exclusive white people only.
    I asked if he was racist because he was only offended because he thought the perpatraitors were black and if they were white it would be fine in his eyes.
    I was expecting some possible controversy over the piece but about the act. I have reitereated to him several times that I purposefully painted them caucasian so as not to hint any racial sterotypes.

    @Marko I joked to the wife last night I was worried as its a dark scene and the skintones may look darker!!

    Good grief... when you said it I went and looked at the photos again, and I still can’t figure out how race ended up in there. I guess they saw a dark scene and interpreted the skin as dark too, because they expected to see it? (Which makes a totally different social point about things generally, rather than you personally!). I thought you’d handled a sensitive subject pretty well, but it seems I’m totally wrong there!

    That box is looking awesome though, how much longer do you have to finish up?

    Could you hear the delicate sound of Cool Hand Luke by that point?
