From the Times of London

'The American banned list reveals a society with seious hang-ups'

***
Next week is Banned Books Week in the US, when the American Library Association lists all the books that, over the previous year, people have attempted to remove from the shelves of libraries, schools and universities. This makes for sobering reading: the top ten most opposed authors in the US include J. K.Rowling (for promoting witchcraft), John Steinbeck (bad language), Maya Angelou (for sexual explicitness) and Stephen King (for being scary). In the list of the 100 most frequently challenged books of the past decade, Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn comes in at No 5 (use of the word “nigger”), J. D. Salinger The Catcher in the Rye at 13 (profanity, sexual references) and Alice Walker’s The Color Purple at No 18 (inappropriate language, sex). Astonishingly, Brett Easton Ellis’s serial-killing saga American Psycho (a book that possibly merits banning for adjective abuse) comes romping in at No 60.

I Long to Hold the Poetry Editor’s Penis in My Hand

 

and tell him personally,
I’m sorry, but I’m going
to have to pass on this.
Though your piece
held my attention through
the first few screenings,
I don’t feel it is a good fit
for me at this time.
Please know it received
my careful consideration.
I thank you for allowing
me to have a look,
and I wish you
the very best of luck
placing it elsewhere.

 

-- Francesca Bell

La femme cependant, de sa bouche de fraise,
En se tordant ainsi qu'un serpent sur la braise,
Et pétrissant ses seins sur le fer de son busc,
Laissait couler ces mots tout imprégnés de musc:
"Moi, j'ai la lèvre humide, et je sais la science
De perdre au fond d'un lit l'antique conscience.
Je sèche tous les pleurs sur mes seins triomphants,
Et fais rire les vieux du rire des enfants.
Je remplace, pour qui me voit nue et sans voiles,
La lune, le soleil, le ciel et les étoiles!
Je suis, mon cher savant, si docte aux Voluptés,
Lorsque j'étouffe un homme en mes bras redoutés,
Ou lorsque j'abandonne aux morsures mon buste,
Timide et libertine, et fragile et robuste,
Que sur ces matelas qui se pâment d'émoi,
Les anges impuissants se damneraient pour moi!"

 

-- Charles Baudleaire

“Many in the black art community are upset by the work,” says Parker Bright, who has been spurred to picket the painting daily since the exhibition opened at the Whitney Museum of American Art
on Friday. Standing, barring museum visitors’ view of the work for up to four hours a day, Bright wears a T-shirt on to which he has written “No lynch mob” on the front, and “Black death spectacle” on the back. “I
wanted to confront people with a living, breathing black body.”

 

And the murdered boy's mother wanted to confront people with a dead, mutilated black body.  She promoted the circulation of the photograph in the 50s for that reason.

"Black art community".  You never hear about a white art community, because that's "racist".  Can't even have one.  What's wrong with THAT picture?
