'Judging America' GIFs shine a light on our racial biases

Follow micdotcom 

"My mission for this series is to open the eyes of people who judge someone because of the color of their skin, their ethnicity, the sexual orientation etc. With all that has been going on this year I felt it was my duty to try and help open those who are being judged and mistreated. The first image is not how they physically look, but how we judge them to be in our heads. For example: the "terrorist" is not an actual terrorist, she is the Nurse who has saved many lives and who most importantly loves America, but because of all that has been going on in the middle east so many people are being categorized as terrorists because of fear and anger. I want to remind the world that these people are normal people, they are good people, and that you can’t judge them without first getting to know them. I want everyone to be treated equally. This series is my voice crying out for change." - Joel Parés

#she terrifies men because she forces them into their true shapes #she is the sea there is no room for pretense in her #she will not allow anyone to render her less than what she is #she will not allow others to be anything than what they are #barbossa is a corpse and davy jones is nothing more than shell and bone and ruin dredged up from the ocean floor #’calypso’ is greek for ‘to conceal to hide’ and that is her root#she is the truth waiting to devour you from beneath

I’ve been waiting to see Calypso on my dash.
